My role at Virgin Media Business

The core focus of my role is to ensure we meet financial commitments set out in the budget and long range plan.

The best thing I've experienced at Virgin Media Business so far...

Since being welcomed into the organisation, the people have been really fantastic to me and I really feel this is what sets Virgin Media Business apart from their competition. What I love most about my job is that I get to help people and bring them together to achieve the same goals;helping the business grow and serving our customers.

What got me here...

I worked at Balfour Beatty before I came to Virgin Media Business, working in various finance and leadership roles. This gave me a broad range of skills and I feel that I am uniquely placed to bring what I have learned in my career to help Virgin Media Business grow as a business and continue to put customers at the heart of everything we do.

The best advice I've ever given

There are no shortcuts in life. It takes hard work, dedication, and at times, you need to take chances.

Favourite business saying...

 “If you stay ready, you never need to get ready”

My personal hero...

I would say footballer Zinedine Zidane. By 13 years old, his talent was such that he was spotted by a scout from Cannes who proclaimed: “I've found a boy who has hands where his feet should be.” Coming from a background in football, I feel he has the perfect mix of artistry, science and genius and it is something that has inspired me since the start of my career.
