I am an accomplished, thoughtful businessman with a strong family and Christian values. I believe in our Prescott people and their potential to create a thriving and sustainable community. Together with much improved future planning, and sensible use of existing and future resources, we can achieve very favorable results for everyone.
I grew up 35 miles east of London in the period after WW 2. The ravages of war were everywhere with bomb sites, rationing and the disabled men who had returned from the battles. My father spent 4 years as a POW in Germany and instilled in me the virtues of working hard and acquiring an excellent education.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Reading, UK. My Ph.D. from Purdue University, IN and an Executive MBA from the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.
During my fulfilling career in industry, I have been a leader in the development and execution of several major inventions and led them to globalized commercial success through the marketing and capital projects execution required. These experiences developed and honed my business and economic development skills. In the last 17 years I have brought these capabilities to Prescott and sought to inject greater economic vitality into Prescott.
For these accomplishments, Purdue University, School of Science honored me as Distinguished Alumnus in 2016.
In my spare time I have enjoyed golf and gardening in our town and have taken advantage of our weather to restore and also tour several classic cars.
