Biography

Thank you for visiting my brief biography.

I am a Senior Teaching Fellow in Accounting, working within the Accounting and Finance Department here at the University of Sussex.

I graduated in 1983 with a degree in Physics from Imperial College, London.

I worked for eight years with one of the largest international firms of accountants; the now demised Arthur Andersen & Co, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant in 1986.  From an early stage I was involved in ICT consulting and computer auditing and used these skills to develop contract consulting work on large scale ICT implementation projects up to 1997.

By this stage I was able to follow areas with a greater personal interest, particularly developing enterprises in the not for profit sector.  Since 1997 I have provided professional accounting, finance, business development and corporate governance consulting support to a number of charities and not for profit enterprises and set some up from scratch.

I am currently a Governor at East Sussex College Group (see http://www.peridotportal.co.uk/eastsussexcolleges/) the Treasurer for Age Concern Eastbourne (see http://www.ageconcerneastbourne.org.uk) and a Director of Good Money CIC (see https://www.goodmoney.co.uk).

I have also developed a career in executive training and education.  I began working at the University in 2008 and currently cover a range of modules in undergraduate and taught post graduate courses as well as leading on the development of Online Distance Learning for the Business School.

All the best

Mark
