Interests and influence

I’m a ‘lifer’ in the motor industry, starting out in vehicle finance and working for Ford in the UK and overseas, with an unforgettable time as Managing Director of Ford Greece. I’ve been working with IoT & telematics since 1999 and it remains one of the most exciting areas of this great industry.

Away from work I have a pampered classic Porsche 911 Carrera 4S which comes out hail or shine and each year I drive down to Le Mans with a few friends for the 24 hour race in June.
