What I do

I have a broad and challenging role at HURST. Essentially my mission is to take the business forward. My responsibilities include client service, sales, marketing, attracting and retaining people, and our international business plan. I also execute major strategic projects for the firm.

Where I've been

I previously worked for BT in a variety of marketing roles in the UK and Europe. I also spent stints in a London creative marketing agency and a Manchester law firm before coming to HURST in 2007 as Marketing Director.
