As a founder of Corporate Citizenship, it’s been my privilege to work for two decades with great companies as they develop their strategies for responsible and sustainable business. That journey has encompassed corporate missions, brands with purpose, investor relations, community engagement, impact measurement, carbon footprinting, and more.
Before founding Corporate Citizenship, I was a director of a national community regeneration agency. An economics graduate, I am a chartered accountant by profession, having qualified with KPMG. I’ve also had a public service career in local government and national policy making. Previously a member of the London Sustainable Development Commission, I’m currently a trustee of the Institute of Business Ethics, treasurer of the New Economics Foundation, and chair of The Restart Project.
Client and Project Experience:
My client relationships have included Barclays, Ford India, HSBC, Mars, MolsonCoors, SABMiller and – longest standing of all – Unilever. I continue to lead the development of LBG and remain founding editor of Corporate Citizenship Briefing, having created the publication back in 1991 (which must be something of a record).
Person I most admire:
Family & loved ones aside, it’s a few selfless people I’ve met down the years who give remarkable service to their local communities, not for glory or praise but simply because they are needed.
