He worked for Lloyds for over 30 years in predominantly delivery-focused roles during which time he built a number of successful teams delivering multi-million pound projects and services. He took early retirement and after a significant break, continued to work as an IT Consultant for 6 years before final retirement. In 2012, he took on the role of a director and Chairman of the local golf club in Stanmore. Closely working with the local community and local government officials, he has turned the Club into a thriving and successful entity.
