Bio I have more than 25 years experience in financial services and loyalty, working with brands such as Affinion, Thomas Cook and GE Capital. I am a mentor with Barclays Fintech Accelerator, Techstars - supporting fintech startups and working with fellow industry experts on a unique programme that takes businesses further. Over the last twelve months, myself and my fellow Unizest co-founders have guided our business through funding rounds, honed and chiselled our proposition in order to get it ready for market - all in the context of a global pandemic and numerous UK lockdowns.

Career History Prior to Unizest, I have enjoyed entrepreneurial success with a green tech venture, and am currently a non-executive Director of an established payments business. In a previous role, I was a part of the strategy team that led the transformation of Airmiles to Avios (IAG).
