Nineteen years in the business has crept up on me very quickly.I started out as a contractor, managing cell site acquisition in Central London. Since then I’ve moved from build and implementation roles, through the setup of Cornerstone (the network share with Vodafone)and out of Networks to my role todayin Property.During this I squeezed in a master’s degree in commercial property law, via distance learning. I now look after building acquisition to disposal, office design and fit-out, as well as estates, space management and some FM in between. In short, I am here to help the team deliver an efficient office and technical estate which is designed to meet the needs of a fast-changing business.My primary focus is helping our people deliver for our customers.I also have a particular interest in new ways of working, as a tool to improve the world of work more widely.View the profile
