I joined Rockpools as the non-executive Chair because the team's ethos, ambitions and expertise are a natural fit with my own professional background and business values.

My career of over 30 years has been committed to the evolution and delivery of the economic development and inward investment agenda, particularly in terms of urban renaissance.  I have worked at a senior level in both the public and private sectors, as the founding Chief Executive of English Partnerships, founding Managing Director of Amec Developments, Managing Director of Lancashire Enterprises Ltd and was the Group Chief Executive of Enterprise Plc.

I chaired Hull Citybuild (one of the UK Government’s most successful urban regeneration companies)and Elevate, the East Lancashire Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder.  Currently, I am the Chair of Canada Quays Ltd, a joint venture with British Land Plc. to deliver 3,000 homes, leisure and retail facilities in London. I am also a board member of the Olympic Delivery Authority and the Deputy Chair of the Olympic Planning Committee.  I am also proud to be the Deputy Chair of Preston North End, Football Club.
