Prior to becoming CEO of Family Business UK, Neil served as Group Director of Responsible Business and Public Affairs at Capita Plc, and was the Global CEO of Corporate Citizenship, an international management consultancy specialising in sustainability. He also previously led the London-based corporate governance and responsible business think-tank, Tomorrow’s Company.
Neil grew-up in Asia, beginning his career in international development with the UNHCR before moving into marketing services and management consultancy. Based initially in Hong Kong, he then spent several years in Taipei, Shanghai and Tokyo, before moving to London to take on global client roles servicing predominantly FTSE100 and privately-owned international companies.
Against prevailing wisdom, in 2010 he established Britain’s only commercial olive grove in Kent. He is also a RNLI crew member on the East Sussex – Kent coast, and a coastal rower.
