My journey so far

I worked as a design engineer and product manager in my early career before moving into general management. In my executive career I was CEO of Aircom International, a UK based global software and services company, and Corporate Vice President of Motorola Inc. both serving the mobile communications industry. Over the last 25 years I have defined winning strategies in mobile telecoms and high growth technology markets, leading companies ranging from £50 million sales to over $1 billion.

I have Chaired three privately backed companies to successful exits, including Skyscanner, the travel comparison site sold for £1.4 billion. Currently I am Chair of Origami Energy and CTRLio and SID at FTSE quoted printing technology business Xaar PLC.

In 2015 I was listed as one of the 100 most influential women shaping tech innovation.

Life outside Holiday Extras

I enjoy playing golf, travelling to learn about new places and time with my family, including two boys who have now left home for London.

What's your perfect holiday?

Somewhere in the sun with all the family where I can play a couple of rounds of golf and relax.
