What’s your role at Intelligence Fusion?
I'm the Head of Sales for Intelligence Fusion. My role is to help grow the business and work with Senior Management to develop the sales plan, setting and then delivering against the KPI’s for the business.
What first attracted you to Intelligence Fusion?
I have worked in the oil industry for the past 23 years, both on the data side as a broker trading crude oil swaps and so I've always been interested in information that moves the market and helps us understand it better.
I was drawn to IF when I was looking at alternative ways to try to predict future trends in oil prices.

Together with the downstream team, we grew what was a small regional product into a global set of products and services with a global client list.
Wood Mackenzie then restructured into a regional business and I was tasked with developing and running the New Client Development team in Europe before lastly taking on the role of Global Head of Sales for it’s chemical business, which we managed to grow by 23% in 2018.
Before that however, I worked for GFI in London and Singapore where I spent two years involved in broking crude oil swaps and derivatives.
