My professional experience includes executive level roles leading large, diverse product, technical, and operational teams in various industries including Events (RX Global), Logistics (FedEx), and Telecommunications (Verizon).  I serve as Chief Operating Officer for RX Global, a leading event organiser in the business of building businesses for individuals, communities and organisations.  RX has over 400 events in 22 countries across 43 sectors generating over £1B in annual revenues.  With my teams, I am responsible for:

I have been a fencing parent for the last 9 years in the United Kingdom and the United States.  This creates a unique experience of living grass roots and international fencing through their respective governing bodies and programmes.  I have also taken up the sport personally as a veteran in the past year, competing the 2022 and 2023.
