Over the past 25 years I have worked in the commercial sector with Mars and Diageo, amongst others, in a variety of FMCG and business-to-business roles including. I have worked primarily in marketing, building specific functional expertise on strategic marketing, communications, innovation and more recently charity fundraising.
In my current role I am responsible for Oxfam’s public fundraising, leading a team of over 60 marketing and fundraising professionals bringing in over £85m per annum for one of the UK’s biggest charities. I am a full member of the Institute of Fundraising and on the Advisory Panel for Rogare, the Fundraising think-tank and a board member of Oxfam Sweden.
