Role in GALVmed

Working with our current and potential donors to gain funding for the development of the products and processes needed to support livestock producers in the developing world. Additionally, overseeing the monitoring and evaluation work of GALVmed.

Joined GALVmed

December 2012

Nationality

British / Zimbabwean

Education

Schooling in Zimbabwe followed by a BSc in Agricultural Economics at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. More recently an MBA through Edinburgh Business School.

Relevant career highlights

I began my working life in the agricultural division of Standard Bank, South Africa and then moved into investment banking in London working at Union Bank of Switzerland and Credit Suisse.  From there, I moved into the research and academic sector and worked most recently in research operations at the University of Cambridge. My position at GALVmed is therefore a happy blend of these former roles with the added benefit that I can now, reasonably confidently, both spell and pronounce Trypanosomomosis.

Interests

Growing up in beautiful Zimbabwe, I used to have all manner of interesting outdoor hobbies and sports. But nowadays a lot of time seems to be spent, together with my wife, just trying to keep three young children on the straight and narrow.
