I am a seasoned management consulting professional with over 26 years of commercial experience, 20 of these in management consulting. My consulting experience has been gained in multiple industries (Telecoms; Banking; Technology; Manufacturing; Utilities; Oil & Gas; Government; Mining; Defence) around the globe (Africa; North America; UK) and across the consulting value chain (Practice management; Business development & sales; Programme design & management). I am a qualified Chemical Engineer (University of Cape Town 1988), have a Bachelor of Commerce (University of South Africa 1998) and was a registered professional engineer (Engineering Council of South Africa 1996, since lapsed). Prior to embarking as an independent in 2007, I held executive level positions in consulting firms including Cap Gemini Consulting (Gemini Consulting) and UCS Solutions, as well as in private banking (Investec). Prior to becoming a consultant, I worked as a Chemical Engineer for various manufacturing and engineering companies including AECI (Sasol), Unilever and KBR (Brown & Root). I am a very outgoing individual with a penchant for building business relationships in 'getting stuff done’, and have a keen interest in current affairs, business, politics and sport.
