Do lots of things, involved in lots of things. Spend as much time outdoors as possible skiing, biking, walking, climbing. Main job is CEO of Cairngorms Business Partnership a chamber of Commerce and Destination organisation. Also involved in some charitable organisations I am passionate about inspiring and giving opportunities to young people particularly using the outdoors for that.
How has the pandemic affected you?
Crazy busy at work. On a very personal and selfish level lockdown 1 was great in many ways. I was so lucky to have my whole family home with glorious weather and paradise on our doorstep. I would swap all of that though for the opportunity to visit and hug my elderly parents in Liverpool.
Do you have a link to Scotland?
I have always loved Scotland, I have been coming for the outdoors from the age of 20 and 10 years ago decided to ‘chuck it all in’ and make it home.
Favourite thing about your job/business?
I love thinking that we can inspire people to come and share amazing experiences in the Cairngorms National Park.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced?
Too many to mention, I love a challenge. Starting a Corporate Bank in Kazakhstan was interesting and incredibly rewarding.
Who inspires you?
If you could swap places with one person (dead or alive) for a day who would it be?
My wife, she is always saying I get the best end of the deal but I don’t think that’s true 🙂
