What do you enjoy most about your job?
Having a great team of people that I feel very fortunate to work with on a daily basis.
How do you most like to spend your time outside of work?
I am sure I should follow the standard “spending time socialising with family and friends, travel, eating out, reading and walking the dog”. While all the above are enjoyable, except for the dog walking as I don’t have one, I can honestly say that I am very happy to escape e mail and the mobile telephone and just spend a few hours in my own company.
Something guaranteed to make your day better…
I am always happy to hear good news from someone close to me, whether that’s something they have achieved or something that makes them happy. There's nothing better.
What makes you laugh?
Is there a quote or motto you try to live by?
An achievement you’re really proud of…
Producing two well-rounded happy daughters. This is primarily due to my wife’s hard work but I believe I played a small part in the process. I’m very proud of all three of them.
Something people might be surprised to learn about you…
I began my working life in a craft bakery working with dough. It’s rather ironic that almost 40 years later I am still working with “dough” of a slightly different texture.
