Jeff is an entrepreneur, natural leader and he relishes new challenges. He excels at crisis management, business continuity and creating more resilient organisations. His career began in the army and he has undertaken operational tours in Turkey, Kosovo, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq, Northern Ireland, Hong Kong, Cyprus, Gibraltar, Brunei and Saudi Arabia.

He has commanded at all levels from a troop of 30 soldiers to his Corps of over 19,000 regulars and 7,000 reserve soldiers. Involvement in crisis management situations such as the foot and mouth outbreak, the firefighters strikes and contingency planning for terrorism have given him a unique insight into leadership during crisis. He became a member of the directing staff on the army’s prestigious technical staff course and won the City and Guilds Institute Award for technology on 2001. He was made an OBE in 2005. He is a fellow of the Security Institute and the Institute of Civil Protection and Emergency Management.

He has planned and led some of the largest emergency planning exercises in the UK.
