I am the Duke of Devonshire’s representative on the governing board.  I work at Chatsworth as the Chief Financial Officer where I have been since 2015.  I am a Chartered Accountant, qualified in 1988 and since leaving the profession in 1999, I have spent time in aviation and in family businesses.


I am married with two boys in their mid teens, but it seems like yesterday that they were in a primary school very similar to Pilsley!  Outside work my interests include golf, sailing, skiing, music (piano) and gardening.  I divide my time between Derbyshire, where I live during the week, and our family home in Surrey.
