  • About me

  • I'm the divisional manager for WR Logistics. We recruit for applicants and clients across the whole spectrum of Transport & Logistics.

    I was born in Norwich, and grew up in Portsmouth, doing A-Levels in English and Sociology. I love my family, and I have three girls. In my spare time I love playing and watching football, watching Norwich City home and away, and playing squash. I enjoy all sports (balanced with eating and drinking), reading different types of books, either with girls or myself, including sporting autobiographies and war time fiction.

    An interesting fact about me is I’m five days younger than Lewis – and always will be.
