After a short stint at microwave manufacturer Merrychef, part of my award for the RSA Young Designer of the Year, I started as a Junior Designer at Seymourpowell in 1989. Over the last 26 years I have been lucky enough to work on many exciting and groundbreaking projects for the likes of Nokia, Casio, Minolta, Ideal Standard and Aqualisa, as well as future concept work for car, train and aero interiors.
Working closely with the Founders, I helped to build the business, and at the age of 31 was made a Director. In 2005, I diverted from my product design roots to build Seymourpowell's successful packaging innovation team. In 2009, I returned to the product and transport team and in 2014 became CEO.
