My experience in FMCG includes working with many top brands such as Stella Artois, Heineken, Lucozade, Ribena, Evian and Volvic. I am passionate about taking drinks brands from concept to creation and into growth. Cider in particular is my favourite tipple.
When I'm not working on house renovation projects, my leadership skills are being tested as coach and referee for the Prestbury Phantoms U8s football team, and, this year, I'm chasing the elixir of youth and training with friends to compete in the Bath half marathon.
I have enjoyed working with a number of top brands including Mars, Snickers, Hardy’s, Echo Falls and Blackthorn. A craft cider man through and through, I'm a firm believer in the apple nectar being as sophisticated and refined as any posh wine.
I enjoy sampling ciders of all varieties including the ‘flavoured’ ones from around the world and if that can be done while squeezing in a bit of sport, whether that be football, rugby or cricket all the better.
I have gained much of my experience within the digital media industry working as Digital Communications Analyst at Teenage Cancer Trust, Technology Editor for B West London, Feature Writer for LoveMusicLoveFood, and Music Correspondent for Works Post. While technology and media are my first loves, my offline interests mainly revolve around Yorkshire puddings and Tottenham Hotspur.
As a whizz of all things finance and accounts. I previously worked in the less glamorous world of precision engineering. When not balancing the books I am busy getting rid of all the magnolia paint in my new house, trying to win pub quizzes & learning to dance ballroom.
I started life making music, claiming a UK number 1, before I moved into the drinks industry with Diageo. After my time with Diageo, I moved onto Cornelius, and Westons Cider. I enjoy music, my children and escaping the children for the odd road trips when I can. I also have another claim to fame - I took the largest ever single order placed by Sainsbury’s in any single transaction for work on Comic Relief in 2007.
I have worked within the drinks industry for the past 15 years, working for Carlsberg, Punch Taverns, Constellation, Gaymers cider & Magners. But while I have worked across all areas of the on-trade, cider has always been a passion of mine. A family man with 2 boys, I help coach the Mighty Stretton Eagles under 12’s, and away from work I love all sports especially football where I still try and compete against the youngsters, I'm also a fair weather festival goer.
I am the founder and director of CellarDoor, a young and growing design studio that passionately creates bespoke, witty and innovative designs. CellarDoor prides itself on being a studio of real life humans that are straight talking, sideways looking and diagonal thinking. Since 2008, I have worked alongside Novus in creating and presenting innovative, vibrant and energetic designs. Outside of work I love a kick-about, and am a sucker for a half marathon.
