// Practice Director, Accounting and Finance //

With over 20 years of experience as a recruiter in the competitive financial and commercial arena in the UK and Australia, I focus on placing high-calibre candidates into exciting new career opportunities.
I have a high level of expertise in recruiting across a wide range of industries, which has led to a strong professional network. From aspiring financial leaders to C-suite executives, I spend my time building a network of talented individuals who want long-term careers and aspire to make a fundamental difference to the companies they join. I have successfully recruited for a diverse range of companies in Australia and abroad, from local organisations to global giants, each requiring a customised approach that is responsive to their business needs and culture. What stays constant is my commitment to providing respectful and ethical services that connect with the best talent the market has to offer. This approach is the basis of everything I do in my work and has led to many strong client relationships.
I am lucky enough to work with a tight-knit, collaborative team of specialist recruiters at Marshall McAdam. I love leading the accounting and finance recruitment practice at Marshall McAdam and am fortunate to be working with some of the most hardworking and talented recruiters in the industry. A commitment to excellent service and quality outcomes for our clients is at the forefront of everything that we do at Marshall McAdam. 
Prior to working in recruitment, I spent a lively two years working on the front line in a not-very-salubrious unemployment benefits office in South London. This job involved everything from translating for French-speaking asylum seekers to having a firearm pointed at me by a disgruntled customer. An interesting introduction to the workplace! An academic year at Melbourne University originally brought me over to Australia, and it was there that I met my future wife when she challenged me to a game of pool at the Clyde Hotel in Carlton. She won of course!
When not engaged in finding the best talent in the market, I can usually be found out and about with my wife and three daughters, or on the golf course where I seem to be fighting mediocrity most days. I'm also a passionate cricket nut, although my playing days are sadly over so I am now restricted to offering an opinion from the couch or the stands.
