Circular Economy Expert

Past Experience - Network Development Lead at the Ellen MacArthur Foundation

I would like to think that I have a professional journey that could be described at best as unusual, and in reality, more eclectic. Following the 12 years on the world stage in the Royal Navy, as a Mine Clearance Diving Officer (MCDO), I was then lucky enough to join the Ellen Macarthur Foundation; a global thought leader in circular economy. During my 3 ½ (amazing) years there, I spent most of my time with the corporate community, discussing their aspirations and helping them to understand how they turn their circular economic journey into a reality.

As the world continues to grapple to create both impact and growth, I work with leading brands and anyone who will listen, on how they can start that journey.

I spend most of my time speaking to people and telling them stories. I try to help organisations not only to find their “why”, be that economic, social, or environmental, but more importantly help them take the first steps to create systems that are both purposeful but also profitable.

The evolution of this journey has now led me to Pyxera Global. Having worked with the team for a couple of years, it was a natural step to broaden my economic focus to include the key elements of social and environmental justice.

As an advisor to the CEO and executive team, I am very fortunate to be both close to the strategic thinking but also be able to roll up my sleeves with the wider Pyxera Global tribe.
