“We want the right outcome for our clients, no matter how long it takes. Not a quick fix, but the right solution.”

Our clients need to be confident that we understand their world, the decisions they need to make and how to achieve the outcome they want.

My career has encompassed several business sectors, various countries and cultures, and a number of different roles. I have grown businesses, entered new markets and made acquisitions. I have also managed major change including the introduction of new systems, organisational redesign and restructurings. This experience together with my understanding of the board appointment process underpins everything I do at Stork & May.

Fundamental to success is passion. I relish the challenge of what I do, whether it is working with someone to secure a new board appointment, advising a newly appointed CEO or helping a client plan the next stage of their career.

No other firm can rival our collective and individual experience. Every day we learn more as we continually encounter new situations and new people. In fact we never stop challenging and developing our capabilities. This gives me immense personal and professional satisfaction.
