MA MSc MBA CChem FRSC MCQI
I graduated from Christ’s College Cambridge in 1981 with a degree in Natural Sciences and have since enjoyed a varied career within the pharmaceutical industry.
I spent twenty years working for major multinational companies, with ten of those years in quality assurance and ten in new product development and project management.
In 2002 I was a co-founder ofPharmaceutical Development Services
and was a driving force behind it becoming one of the UK’s leading CMC consultancies. My work with them continues on certain projects and I confidently recommend the use of their regulatory and formulation development expertise to my clients.
In 2010 I established my own consultancy practice in the United Kingdom, working with small and medium-sized companies all over the world. In 2019 I moved the business to Spain, and continue to provide services focused on GMP, quality management and quality systems from the foothills of the Sierra de Gracia in Andalucia.
I have a rare blend of expertise in managing interfaces, whether between factories, or between R&D and Production.
An analytical chemist by training, I am a Chartered Chemist and Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (UK), a Chartered Quality Professional, a member of the Pharmaceutical Quality Group (UK) and the Asociación Española de Farmaceuticos de la Industria. I am also a certificated IRCA Lead Auditor for Pharmaceutical Quality Management Systems.
I am not just a scientist, I am an experienced manager with multinational and small business experience, and hold a Masters in Business Administration.
Outside of industry, I am a Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) Business Practitioner, enjoy scuba diving, rowing and weight training, and am a practised tinkerer with computers. Married with one son, I also speak fluent Spanish.
