Having initially worked as a corporate finance/commerce and technology lawyer, I have been Head of Legal/Company Secretary at both Tarmac and PSA Group subsidiaries in the UK. Currently a senior international lawyer working for PSA Group Global Head Office, I have significant boardroom and governance committee experience, with a strong strategic perspective. Originally a student at the University of Birmingham, I worked in the North East and Yorkshire for many years before being tempted back to the Midlands 15 years ago, where I eventually found myself working for Peugeot Citroën Automobiles in Coventry. I have a strong desire to use my experience and skills to “give something back” to the community, particularly in relation to the education and welfare of children and young people. I am grateful for this opportunity to be part of an organisation, which makes such a difference to the lives of children, especially in the Coventry and surrounding area. I am also a mentor for Law undergraduates at the University of Birmingham mentoring scheme.
