VP Commercialisation

I help inventors and businesses to realise value from innovation through licensing, business development and new venture creation.

As a VP Commercialisation at Ploughshare, I have the privilege of working with world-leading inventors across a number of public-funded research organisations in order to help them realise commercial and social benefits from their inventions.

I was previously a founding director of Orion Innovations, a professional services business that helped guide new businesses through start-up and early-stage development, helped to turn around and grow established businesses through market diversification, new venture creation, and acquisition.

Over my career I have worked with a wide number of government, academic and public sector research bodies, NGOs and innovation agencies to foster and accelerate innovation and growth.
