I love working with people to solve problems and overcome hurdles. I really enjoy learning about different businesses, understanding their issues and forming relationships with people as a colleague to create appropriate and practical solutions at both strategic and day-to-day levels
Hello I'm Alan...
WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
THE EXPERIENCE I BRING
I worked for many years in a FTSE100 PLC at senior level in both legal and commercial roles. Most recently, I worked as a very hands-on legal director at Bicester Village and the John Lewis Partnership. I am an experienced Company Secretary and qualified as a pensions trustee. I am General Counsel and Company Secretary of The Royal Parks and also serve as a trustee of a charity elsewhere. I have experience as a non-executive director of a listed company and as vice-chairman of one of the UK’s largest social housing organisations. My strengths are principally in corporate and commercial but, having started my career as a banking lawyer, I am still strong on debt and finance leasing. I like to think that I’m approachable and diplomatic whilst also clear-thinking and results-driven
WHEN I'M NOT WORKING
I live with my wife in Oxford and have two grown-up daughters living in London. I love walking and cycling, cinema and theatre but most of all wine and opera
