About

I initially trained as an IT specialist but has a wide-ranging background spanning both public and private sectors from education and local government to military weapons and IT systems at all levels of management. Before joining Sheffield Hallam, I was the Director of Enterprise for the Government's business support service in the Yorkshire region where he was responsible for services supporting pre-start up and young businesses. I have a doctorate in management studies (DBA), a master's degree in Business Administration (MBA), am a fellow of the Chartered Management Institute, a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a tutor member of the Institute of Leadership & Management.

My research is primarily concerned with the institutions of social and co-operative enterprise with a particular focus on the legal structures of social enterprises.
