Partner, Corporate Support
I’m a graduate in Mechanical Engineering from Manchester University and began my career in management consultancy with KMG Thomson McLintock, which today is known as KPMG. I subsequently joined manufacturer Barry Wehmiller International plc (BWI), as Financial Controller, before becoming Business Development Manager. I was then persuaded to join a business originally established by my grandfather – WT Burden Limited – and ultimately became its Chief Executive, where I nurtured its ground breaking move into all-employee share ownership. Across my entire career to date I’ve had a deep involvement in IT – from the days almost before it existed to the present day challenges of keeping personal information safe. My day-to-day role at Castlefield is therefore focused on IT strategy and implementation, which I’m able to combine with working independently with a number of growing employee-owned businesses.
In my spare time I enjoy walking, sailing, reading, swimming and restoration of classic cars.
