I joined the Charlotte Street Partners team in January 2024, after more than 25 years in the newspaper industry.

I was previously Editor-in-Chief of The Scotsman, the Press & Journal, Scotland on Sunday, Edinburgh Evening News and the Evening Express.

My career as a journalist and editor has coincided with a period of rapid industry change with the move to digital publishing, data, subscriptions and changing audiences.

Leading through unprecedented disruption has given me experience which will be invaluable in helping clients manage complex and challenging situations, and in advising them how best to communicate with stakeholders in difficult circumstances.

On weekends you will find me walking my dog, playing tennis and listening to podcasts.
