I grew up coming to Derby to watch the Rams and for trips to the theatre and cinema. Having seen first-hand the regeneration of other UK cities, now it's great to be playing a part in Derby's future - there is such a buzz here.

You'll find me...

Heading up the inward investment service, making sure our work is targeted, customer-focused and that our operations are joined up. Many of the projects I work on are commercially sensitive but, trust me, they are exciting for the city!
 

I'm currently working on...

Various projects with our partners in the city and across the region and heading to London for investor meetings to ensure Derby is well-connected in national circles.
 

My favourite inspirational quote...

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller 1986
 

My hidden Derby gem is...

The stunning Peacock Dress displayed in the Eastern Museum at Kedleston Hall.
 

What I bring to the team...
