Five years ago I joined George to head up their Quality and Ethical teams. My job takes me around the world and I find now that my 18 years experience in manufacturing holds me in good stead when selecting the best factories to work for George.

I started my working life in Yorkshire based in a Menswear trouser factory in 1983 on a Youth Training Scheme where, having joined has a sewing machine mechanic, I progressed into Quality and Production management before moving overseas to Morocco and then Portugal to manage factories.

After 5 years overseas I moved back to the UK and made the switch from industry to retail in 2001.
