Additional Information

With my wife, Claire, I run a small local business which we started from scratch 10 years ago, helping public sector organisations and charities. I’m a “compassionate Conservative” and was very fortunate to be awarded an OBE in 2013 for my work in the voluntary sector. Before that, I spent 25 years running private sector organisations, including 9 years as Managing Director of Böttcher UK in Ebbw Vale. We have lived in the countryside near Ross for 20 years and we have 2 sons, Alex and Tom.
