Commercial Director at Boeing

Location: UK

I am currently the Commercial Director for Boeing UK responsible for all Defence and National Security Divisions within the UK. I lead a team of 40-50 estimating & pricing and commercial specialists working closely with finance, legal and supply chain functions. I started my professional career within the Sales and Commercial team at Horstman Defence after completing my bachelor’s degree in sport and exercise science at the University of Bath. After 4 years I moved to Bristol and joined Boeing in 2014 as Head of Commercial for the National Security and Defence Services division, before holding roles as Finance Manage, Head of Estimating & Pricing and Senior Business Manager for Vertical Lift and Fixed Wing Divisions. In this time I have also joined Cranfield University and attended the Defence Acquisition Management Course held at Shrivenham and achieved IACCM Contract and Commercial Management Advanced Practitioner status. I am also actively involved in industry forums run by ADT, SSRO, Teck UK and DSF groups.
