Corporate Development Director, Pioneer Group
Pioneer Group’s purpose is to provide the environment in which ambitious life sciences and healthcare companies are more likely to be successful. We support entrepreneurs from early stage business concept onwards, helping them to test their commercial viability, raise money, launch and grow within our community.
I am part of a team of committed professionals dedicated to making this happen. In particular I am responsible for contributing significantly to the growth of Pioneer Group by leading on the recruitment of new companies to Pioneer Group’s sites and by helping the growth of existing client companies.
I started professional life at the British Consulate-General in Lyon and was appointed Commercial Consul heading up the life sciences sector for France.
I have worked in UK bio-incubators since 2005 and am chair of the UK Bioincubator Forum, representing 24 bioincubators across the UK.
