Global General Counsel with 25 years’ experience of working in some of the world’s most successful global life sciences companies and international law firms. A life sciences graduate, I am passionate about bringing better health solutions to the world.

I currently work for Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world’s largest life sciences tools and healthcare technologies company. In my EMEA role I am leading a great team of respected and talented lawyers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and globally. Together, through strategic transformation and change management, we are building our first co-ordinated pan-regional legal services operation, investing in technology-enabled process solutions, and delivering significant cost-effective competitive advantage to the business.

International in outlook, I have a life-long fascination with the life sciences and high tech. (now including data privacy, digital, machine learning and AI), the interface between innovation and business commercialisation, law and governance, and ethical wealth creation. I seek to make a difference through a number of entrepreneurial and charitable endeavours including a personal interest in dementia. I am a linguist (French and German) and, time permitting, a restless traveller.
