After half a lifetime working as a scientist in the electronics, telecommunications, space and IT sectors and as a consultant, manager and finally as a main board director at Logica plc. I decided upon 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 also various vertical lines of business internationally. Co-founded Cable London plc, now part of Virgin Media plc.

On leaving Logica in 1994, I became an independent director of the Guardian Media Group plc, Guardian News and Media Ltd, also appointed a non-executive director of the NASDAQ quoted Integrated Micro Products Inc., chairman of the venture capital backed Language Line (a telephone interpreting business) and several other technology companies in the UK and the US. Undertook strategic and technical consultancy for the Guardian, Cable and Wireless, British Airways, Mitsui, Reuters, Inmarsat, Eutelsat, AT&T and other international corporations and government agencies in the UK, the US, Europe and Asia.  I was for 15 years senior independent director of Baronsmead Second Venture Trust plc.  I was also appointed chairman and trustee of the international NGO Integrity Action.


Currently I am a trustee and director of Medical Aid for Palestinians and closely involved in various activities in the Middle East, which started many years ago when I was working in Gaza for the UN.
