Having set up the very first issue of Able Magazine, from a desk in my bedroom, in 1994 I can’t believe that I now have over 25 years experience in the publishing sector.
My main strength, I guess, would be my aptitude to sales and I have been recognised both personally and for the business with many awards over the years – my proudest moment being in 2007 when I was voted ‘Publisher of the Year’ by the PPA against some very stiff competition.
I would say that what makes ours a successful company, is that I believe that anything is possible. I have taken a back seat within the business for a few years but I’m pleased to say that I am now very much back at the helm and overseeing the redesign and re-marketing of our magazines.
In my spare time I like socialising - perhaps a little too much (well, I am single again), walking the dog, playing golf and hitting the gym. Apart from that and the inevitable work commitments, family is really important to me and so I spend most of my spare time with my three gorgeous kids: Mia, Callum and Angelica.
