BSc Geological Sciences; MBA Management & Business Administration
I have a unique blend of international and Africa-based experience that spans 25 years and led sustainable strategic end-to-end agribusiness value chain development and transformation in a variety of small-to-medium sized companies and farming groups. I now apply this experience and passion in my role at CABI, helping to transform smallholders’ lives within agribusiness value chains in developing countries.
Originally from a high-tech engineering background, throughout my career I demonstrated a versatile approach, evaluating, developing and leading start-ups, expansions, integrations and turnaround programmes to drive impactful sustainable growth.
I successfully delivered innovative producer-focused solutions within complex vertically-integrated end-to-end supply chains in the food and beverage and horticulture sectors. I have a deep understanding of governance and value addition in all areas of an organization through the pragmatic application of operational excellence.
