I’m passionate about building high performance workplaces and delivering talent management and acquisition within, and on behalf of, complex technology driven organisations. As Managing Director of Elite for the last decade I have been dedicated to delivering measurable talent success to market leading iGaming and Digital companies across Europe. I have successfully worked within, partnered and supported businesses at all stage of their lifecycle from privately owned Start-Ups to Publically Listed companies.
Across contingency recruitment through to design, roll out and application of robust recruitment processes and talent management strategies I have enjoyed providing tailored recruitment and talent solutions to technology driven businesses across Europe including the UK, Gibraltar and Spain.

I qualified as a Chartered Member of CIPD in 2012 and became a qualified Psychometric Assessor in 2014.

I’m passionate about start-ups and have extensive first-hand experience starting a successful business. I’m always keen to share my knowledge and I actively participate in meetups and have publicly delivered presentations and speeches aimed to support digital start-ups in the UK.
