I have been a Trustee for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research since 1977. I had close involvement with the impact and trauma that leukaemia can bring when my wife was diagnosed with AML in 1998 and I had two young teenage children.
My background is in media and communications. I ran my own media specialist company for twenty years and also worked as part of major media corporations including Aegis and McCann Erickson Plc. I worked with major clients including Iceland Foods, Sainsburys Bank and Littlewoods.
I also am involved in the Finance and General Purposes Committee as well as the Patient Impact sub committee.
