Mash

CEO

I began my career at the observer newspaper before moving to Video Arts where I became Sales and Distribution Director. I later moved to Spring Group as initially commercial director of one of the divisions before taking the role of group Marketing and Communications Director, where I was responsible for launching the highly successful spring.com. Since Spring I have started, bought and sold a number of companies including setting up Tests.com and turning around Creation Station. I joined Healthcare Learning: Smile-On in 2005.

Outside of work my hobbies include running and playing rugby. I am also a keen reader of non-fiction particularly autobiographies and scientific journals.

Proudest moment:

Lifelong goal/aim:

Create fantastic memories for my children.

What would you do with a million pounds?

Give it away

What I like about Mash:

Mash’s love of rugby is the best thing – it means when I come in on a Monday and ask ‘did you see the game this weekend?’ he knows I’m talking about Wasps v Saracens, not Man U v Arsenal.
