Route to JMAN Group:
I was there at the beginning! After a Chemistry MSc from Cambridge, 4 years of consulting and a year in Industry with BT, I started as an independent consultant with a limited company called JMAN Group in 2010. Today, we are a genuine Group, with a great team that is growing quickly. We now work across many sectors and with different types of clients, with one goal in mind – using whatever tools at our disposal to solve clients’ problems. My experience is in strategy and operational consulting across a wide range of sectors; I spent 4 years at Arthur D. Little working on projects in the Telecoms, Energy and Public sectors, ranging from pure strategy and due diligence, to process and organisational re-design in the UK, Europe, Middle-East and China. I previously spent 12 months as part of the internal strategy team at BT OneIT and completed 4 summer placements in the chemistry R&D Laboratories of GlaxoSmithKline. Our aim at JMAN Group is to find better ways of doing things, for our clients and for the people who work for us. We respect traditional consulting and advisory methods, but are always looking to use new tools and techniques to solve problems and get better results. Cross-pollination is something we are keen on – from technology, various industry sectors and walks of life, we use different ideas from wherever we can find them to make us better. It certainly makes for an interesting journey.
Outside of JMAN Group:
I’m a sports fanatic who continues to play cricket for The MCC and a variety of wandering sides, as well as hockey for The Honourable Artillery Company (HAC), on a strictly amateur basis. I also try to spend as much time as possible with my lovely family, and occasionally succeed in doing so!
