At this point he left and joined Mouchel Parkman plc as a non exec director and drove their transformation to a successful infrastructure management company.

He helped the school out of special measures and into Technology College status, turning what was seen as a failed school into a high achiever, celebrating its success and the 53 languages of its students. He has also chaired the S W Newham Education Action Zone to improve education in Canning Town and the Royal Docks, as well as his local school governors in Basingstoke. " [1]
