I help find clarity in chaotic environments helping leaders in taking rational and well-informed decisions. I bring an effective blend of consulting, investment banking and automotive leadership. Mentors throughout my career have trained me to embrace curiosity and an intelligent approach to quickly grasping the nexus of critical issues.
I'm honoured with a wide following on Linkedin to my series of essays on key issues in the retail automotive sectors here in the UK, in North America and Europe.
As Senior Vice President for Cendant Corporation, I facilitated the acquisition and consolidation of Avis and Budget to form Cendant's successor, Avis Budget Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAR) before leading the turnaround of Budget's failing 70,000 fleet Ryder consumer truck rental subsidiary.
I had previously led Avis' $4 billion acquisition of PHH Leasing and Wright express before subsequently divesting European operations to BNP Paribas to form Arval Leasing and spinning out now publicly-traded WEX, Inc. (NYSE: WEX).
Prior to joining Avis, I provided clients with fiduciary, transaction and restructuring advisory on behalf of Ernst & Young in New York City.
