Prior to this, he held Group CFO board-level positions within the WPP PLC network of branding agencies, leading their finance and operations strategies. 

His focus is on driving operational excellence and efficiencies across the Group’s portfolio of brands, driving best practice delivery globally, and implementing proven strategies for continued scale and profitable growth.
