I was appointed as a Staff Governor in 2016, and serve on the Finance Estates and People Committee and the Investment Committee for the Foundation Charity. My staff job is as Cover Supervisor, standing in for short term absence of teaching staff. I have had two sons at Vesey, one leaving in 2017 for University and the other joining in 2015. The school has proved exceptional in helping them progress academically, as sportsmen and in their personal development.

My business experience covers nearly 40 years in the financial sector, specifically insurance, onshore and offshore investment and banking. I have held a wide range of jobs including Insurance Underwriter, admin complaints handler, training manager, admin manager, marketing director, sales director and managing director. I have also worked as an IFA.

I live with my Partner, Karey, in Sutton Coldfield. I have 4 sons. When not acting as an unpaid taxi service, shivering on some hockey touchline or dishing out cash as their personal banker, I enjoy watching sport and being walked by my Labrador.

BVGS is a wonderful school and I am both passionate in its support and unique in my perspective as a Governor, Parent and member of staff.
