After half a lifetime working as a scientist and engineer in the electronics, telecommunications, space and IT sector as a consultant, manager and finally as a main board director at Logica plc. I decided on a plural career.  At Logica, at various times, I was responsible for the communications, media, space, electronics and government business sectors in the UK, operations in Asia and Europe and various vertical lines of business internationally.  I co-founded Cable London plc, one of he first cable TV businesses in the UK and now part of Virgin Media.

 

On leaving Logica in 1994, I became an independent director of the Guardian Media Group plc, Guardian News and Media Ltd, also appointed non-executive director of the NASDAQ quoted Integrated Micro Products Inc., chairman of the venture capital backed Language Line Ltd (a telephone interpreting business) and several other technology companies in the UK and the US.  I undertook strategic and technical consultancy for the Guardian, Cable and Wireless, British Airways, Mitsui, Reuters, Inmarsat, Eutelsat, AT&T and other corporations and government agencies in the UK and internationally.

 

For 15 years, I was senior independent director of Baronsmead Second venture Trust.  I was chairman of the International NGO, Integrity Action.  From 2009 to 2018 I was a trustee of Medical Aid for Palestinians.

 

Currently I am trustee of the Welfare Association (UK) and am closely involved in various activities in the Middle East, which started many years ago when I was working for the UN in Gaza.

 

I am a chartered engineer, a fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, a registered European Engineer, a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and a member of Chatham House (the Royal Institute of International Affairs).
