About Me

Experienced Life & Pensions expert having spent over 30 years in the industry. 

I joined a Life & Pensions provider (NPI) at the age of 18 as a Customer Service Administrator, with the intention of this being a stop gap before deciding on my future career. I ended up staying for 19 years and went through a number of mergers and acquisitions (NPI becoming AMP and then Pearl Group) and gained experience in a number of roles including Customer Service Manager, Sales Support, Actuarial Support, Marketing and Product Development before moving into IT. 

During my spell in IT I was Senior Business Architect for the implementation of a new core Policy Administration System to support the group wide Individual and Group Personal Pension portfolio. Following the close down of the Pearl business I jumped ship and joined the software vendor that I had been working with. I spent the next 12 years in a number of Sales, Account Management, Solutions Design, Product Management and Delivery Management roles.

I have worked with a large number of leading Life & Pensions provider organisations globally as well as technology providers to the Insurance industry. I am comfortable working and engaging with all levels of a Life & Pensions organisation from C-Level to Customer Service Administrator.

I am now at Charles Taylor InsureTech as Practice Director with a remit to develop a Life & Pensions Insurance proposition based upon the provision and implementation of market leading technology solutions to the Global Insurance Industry.

I am married with 2 grown up boys who I force to join me at Brighton and Hove Albion FC games – having been an avid supporter since 1977.
