After completing a degree in Leisure Resource Management (BSc.) at Portsmouth, I have spent all of my career working at some of the largest full service event agencies and Travel Management Companies in the UK. In these 20 year there have been many great clients that I have worked with, from Sony, O2, PepsiCo, Gilead, Akzo Nobel, Galileo, Peugeot and many more – giving me a great insight into many different industries and a myriad of events! From huge product launches, roadshows, family fun days, global sales conferences, incentives, and glamourous awards dinners and much more.
It was in September 2017 that my wife (Jeanette) and I decided it was time to be in control of our own destiny and that’s when VDS was born! Jeanette has 15 years’ experience of working venue/hotel side and I agency side. So we feel we have a very good understanding of the industry between us.
On a personal level, I love spending time as a family exploring new places both in the UK and overseas. We all enjoy camping in the summer months.
I have completed 2 Ironman Triathlons and 3 London Marathons over the years and whilst I’m not currently training for anything significant like that, I do like to keep fit by playing squash and cycling whenever I can spare the time!
