LinkedIn Profile

I am a true Londoner, born and bred!

I tend to focus on application/production support roles. Before Orbis I spent over 20 years in investment banking within technology, mainly managing support teams on various desks and systems. Therefore I have a great understanding of the functions and participants for the roles I work on.

I like a chat and that is why I feel Orbis and the recruitment industry are made for me! 

When I'm not in the office, you might find me at the gym or enjoying a glass of red wine - or two!
