I’m currently Head of Marketing for London 2012 and prior to this I led brand marketing and communications for Cisco UK and Ireland. Before joining Cisco, I worked for a leading consumer electronics manufacture leading marketing campaigns for both the mobile phone and home entertainment divisions. And before this, I acquired several years in product management at a leading international retailer after graduating with a specialism in marketing and advertising communications.
Outside of Cisco, I enjoy cooking on my barbeque, come rain or shine (I do a great chicken dish, rolled with Parma ham and cheese) as well as cycling (cycled London to Paris but got the train back), running and more recently I learnt to fence. I have a fondness for F1, go-karting, gadgets and blockbuster movies – my DVD/Blu-ray collection is getting a bit out of hand!
I’ve seen how sport can inspire and bring people together, transcending boundaries and borders. It’s just the same for the organisations delivering to the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Organising London
