Managing Director, Formula Plastics


After completing my apprenticeship I went on to study Industrial Management at University. I then worked in a number of large companies including Boots and Honda. After ten years living & working in Belgium, it was time to come home to where I grew up, the wonderful North East.

I'm lucky that my career has brought me to this point, working with a great team in a great company. I enjoy the challenge of improving myself, hopefully to the benefit of my team and customers.


I'm a keen photographer, always challenging for that elusive perfect shot. I've recently taken up running and take part in a local Parkrun most weekends. I love the satisfaction that both provide.
