Managing Director

Tell Us About Your Background

I started recruiting in London straight out of University within the IT market and after a few years moved to Australia to recruit in the same space. In 2014 a fantastic opportunity came my way and I took over at TMS. It has been a great journey and I quickly realised I preferred the world of Travel than that of IT! We have built a fantastic team of travel specialist and opened new offices across Australia, Asia and now the UK, through New Frontiers. My role now is more focused on the continued growth of the business whilst ensuring all the new locations maintain our high level of service and standards.

Why Recruitment?

It’s all I have ever done! From my first day of working in London as a graduate, I have found the variety, pace and team work to be something I thrive on and enjoy being a part of. It has always been a very much work hard, play hard industry and I have met some fantastic people along the way, including colleagues, clients and candidates many of which I now consider great friends.

What Is Your Favourite Destination & Why?

I would have to choose somewhere in South America, I loved every country I went to in the region with special mention to Columbia and of course Brazil but at a push I would choose Argentina, from the stunning Iguazu Falls to the generous marbled steaks and delicious red wine In Buenos Aires. What a place!

I was one of the first people to play at the new Wembley Stadium in London…in a charity match alongside Alan Shearer.
