Business Development Director
With over 30 years experience in complex IT sales I have been able to develop trusted relationships with my clients, adding value to their businesses and enabling them to grow in a sustainable way.
I feel passionate about ensuring that our clients digital investments deliver a measurable ‘Return On Investment’ and that the full potential of the websites deployed are realised.
My ultimate goal is to help them gain a competitive advantage.
Outside of work I’m passionate about family life, cycling, motorsport of any kind (anything with an engine!), food, skiing and travel.
My career began in Birmingham in 1985, working for a typesetting & commercial artwork studio. Later that decade, with technological changes afoot (a.k.a. the desktop publishing revolution), I co-founded one of Birmingham’s first DTP imaging studios, promoting the new concept of digital artwork and design.
In the 1990s I took a position as a production manager within a central London advertising agency, working with many prominent brands, eventually co-founding a new digital imaging studio in Soho.
Moving back to Stourbridge later that decade, I worked as a freelance graphic designer, soon taking a directorship in the Birmingham studio where it all started, tasked with updating the business to focus on digital prepress and printing. In 2006 I founded Blueprint Design & Graphics Limited, working from a purpose-converted studio at home, where we continue to operate from today.
I’m a keen cyclist, enjoy skiing and occasionally visit a gym.
From an early age I have been inspired by everything creative. I recently completed a Diploma in Art and Design where I focussed closely on illustration and graphics.
My favourite thing about this job is learning all about the different design processes, gaining lots of knowledge through completing a variety of jobs with support of the team.
I spend my spare time with my friends and family, creating illustrations, reading books, going for walks with my dog and drinking lots of tea.
