But his overall responsibility is making sure clients of the entire Peninsula Group enjoy the same market-leading quality of advice that the group is renowned for.
His 18 years in employee relations have led to widespread recognition. This includes a Chartered Fellowship of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and a Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts—having demonstrated a significant contribution to business and society.
