Chief Executive Officer

There comes a time in everyone’s life where you get an opportunity you just can’t say no to.... 

For me, that was when my employer of 17 years, AstraZeneca, decided to rebuild a brand-new site in Cambridge and move my role there from Alderley Park.  Despite AstraZeneca being an exceptional employer, with whom I have been lucky to support research projects across multiple therapy areas, from early stage drug discovery through to supporting drug development and life cycle management, I was ready for a new challenge. 

With the support of the Alderley Park Accelerator I’ve been fast-tracked into the commercial world and with the help of an amazing team and support network, I founded Cryosphere Services (rebranded in 2020 to Cryoniss). 

Bench scientist by trade but someone who loves interacting with people, I am a strategic thinker who loves problem solving.  I am on a personal mission to help the scientific community improve the quality of research by providing a first-class service for the acquisition, transport, storage and handling of high quality, ethically and legally sourced biological reagents. 

My colleagues occasionally suggest I’m a tough taskmaster.  I am driven to provide the best service we can to our customers.  A perfectionist, a planner and very risk averse.  On a personal note, I do enjoy a glass of wine.
