What attracted you to your job? I'd worked in the UK charity sector for eight years and wanted to join an organisation with diverse international reach. It was a fantastic opportunity to achieve this with MAG - and it was based in the north west, so I could be close to my family.
What is your proudest achievement? I drove MAG's pursuit of an improved VAT recovery position, challenging HM Revenue & Customs' view of the VAT status of our work funded by institutional donors. It was a long, bumpy road but we achieved our goals, and more funding is now available to benefit communities around the world.
What inspires you? MAG's people are an inspiration - they work in tough locations carrying out incredible, life-saving work.
What's your dream job? Golf club secretary. I have a keen interest in golf club administration and I think it would be a challenging and fun role. But I have a few years left at the sharp end.
What's your favourite film? Good Will Hunting, although the ending is emotional.
