What makes me different

It’s been almost 2 decades of working in the staffing industry, the changes that have taken place are too numerous to mention, however my passion for people and appreciation of how individuals can positively impact an organisation has remained a constant.

Opus’s mission, vision and commitment to supporting businesses improve their talent life cycle is why I’m here. I have spent over a decade bouncing around the world gaining exposure to multi-cultural environments, ranging from Asia, Europe, America and the Middle East.

I have spent time leading, sustaining and growing businesses from start up to public listing, with over 15 years’ experience across technology, digital, marketing, staffing, human capital, and advertising sectors. The growth, performance and management of group operations for global businesses, including PLC's, VC, PE backed and private owned organisations, is where I have learnt my craft.

I have had to wear many hats and my commercial experience ranges from financial, commercial & operational exposure. This includes high growth, entrepreneurial environments with multi-national experience, through to developing strategy & business plans, executive leadership and people development.

I am passionate about coaching and mentoring, focusing on employee engagement and a culture of high performance. Developing and watching people grow is of huge importance to me. My belief is that through skill, commitment, continuous learning and development, and despite the fact the technology continues to disrupt all of our day to day lives, organisations still need people. Opus provides those people and much more.

Outside of work I am a proud father of 3, rugby loving, part time foodie, wine enthusiast and nomad.
