Co-founder of the Manchester PA Network and EA to the CEO at Citation Profession Solutions in Wilmslow
I have now worked for Citation since December 2013 and I love my job. Working within the private equity world brings a whole different world of knowledge to the business world and how companies work and having the opportunity to work with an executive team to build a multimillion pound company definitely keeps me interested. Every day there is a difference challenge.
Outside of work there isn’t much down time for me. I have my twin boys, Pearse and Beau who are now four… where did the time go. They bring laughter and joy to my life every day.
I am also on the National Board for EPAA which is bringing a different angle to the PA profession and looking at ways to make our profession one that we are proud of and getting people to understand just how much we can bring to our businesses.
Another role I have taken on and am in my third year is YPO Chapter Admin. This is a harder role to explain but I help the organisation to bring a network for CEO, Business Entrepeurs together from across the Pennine region. This has given me a lot of opportunities to see how the CEO think and what they benefit from. It has also given me an opportunity to travel to Dubai and at the end of this month San Diego. Last but not least is my passion, which is the Manchester PA Network.
It is an absolutely honour to be one of the co-founders of the Manchester PA Network. To be part of something that has gone from strength to strength, not only with more than 700 members but to have achieved a successful second year of the Manchester PA Awards, raised over £70,000 for The Christie, met so many inspirational PA’s along the way and built friendships… wow.
2017 is set to be another busy year with more focus on hitting our £100k target, completing my pledge to walk the three peaks in 24 hours and to organise some awesome events for our members to attend.
On a personal note, I feel I have been very fortunate to be involved in so many wonderful things and I would like to thank our members for all their support
