Executive General Manager Sales
In 2007, after a successful 13 year career in publishing working as the Commercial Director for the largest free newspaper group in the UK, I was introduced to the recruitment business through the owner of a Boutique Recruitment Agency who had a very bold vision of growth for his business and wanted my strategic mind to help him on this journey.
That career connection has taken me on the most rewarding 12 years of my working life.
I led the field in Construction recruitment in the UK providing everything from Unskilled Labours to Site Surveyors, Contract Managers and Project Directors etc working closely with some of the largest construction firms in the UK from Laing O Rourke, Careys, Alfred McAlpine, Balfour Beatty and Galliford Try to name a few and was fortunate to work on the London Olympic Stadium and Athletes Village project.
By the time I left to move to Australia in 2011 I had risen from Manager to Director, delivered a successful Perm recruitment Strategy and set up an industry leading IT recruitment division for the business
I am delighted to be part of the Senior Executive Team here at empire group and really believe that my 35+ years of experience throughout my working life will enhance the sheer wealth of skills and Knowledge currently within our leadership team.
When I'm not at empire group, you'll find me out on Moreton Bay on my jet ski
