To learn more about my CV and interests, click the tabs marked ‘CV’ or ‘Pastimes’ above the images on the right-hand panel.

In particular, as Chairman and Managing Director of one of India’s leading investment banks, I arrived in the teeth of the Asian crisis. Working with a very talented team of financial and operational colleagues, we took a business with a powerful market position, but in development phase and thus loss-making, forward into profitability.
In 2010 Dovedale Design was set up, to pull together our various web activities.
