I joined the Faculty of Business and Law in August 2000, following 20 years working as a senior marketing manager and marketing consultant for both blue-chip and SME companies. These included Legal & General, IBM, Edexcel, Monster and the Department of Education.  I have experience of working in marketing communications, marketing strategy, e-commerce development and international marketing management. During the past 9 years I have also taught part-time on the post-graduate level courses for the CIM.

I have a BA Hons (Lancaster) and was the first person to graduate in Marketing and German at Lancaster University in 1987. I also hold a MBA (Manchester Business School) and a PGCE.
