Broaden Your Horizons
My day job is Head of Vendor Management within the financial services world – which I absolutely love. Outside of work my life is spent doing a vast array of charity work. Currently I am the Chairman of the West of Scotland Branch of the Chartered Institute of Purchase & Supply, Director and board member of St Andrews First Aid Training & Supplier Ltd, Trustee for the Scottish Maritime Sailing Trust, part time lecturer at the City of Glasgow College and am absolutely passionate about working with OYT Scotland. If I ever get any spare time I spend it on the water, racing or just having fun on my yacht.
My life has been spent in the procurement, commercial and supply chain arena which I absolutely love and would recommend as a great career path. I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with an MBA and have a fellowship from the Chartered Institute of Purchase and Supply.
As I am passionate about charity work and sailing, for me it was a very easy choice to get involved with OYT Scotland. I never cease to be amazed by how passionate everyone at the Trust is and am genuinely proud to be involved with such a worthy organisation.
I started to sail in Largs racing on a friends yacht on Tuesday nights. I very quickly caught the bug and it grew from there very quickly. Scottish Series, Tuesday night racing, regattas and basically any chance to get out on the water. In 2014 I completed the Arc with some friends in 18 days. What’s next… who knows perhaps the Clipper Round the World Race!
