Why did you join the lang cat?
Already knowing a fair bit about the lang cat, I was sure I’d appreciate and value the culture and ethos, as well as the folk who work here. Plus a flagon of ale and a tot of whisky may have been involved, making it all a nae brainer.
What is your role at the lang cat?
Commercial consultant, which covers a wide array of mostly good clean fun. This might concern the negotiation of commercial terms, checking intricacies around our client and supplier relationships, or helping to find a safe path through anything that looks thorny.
If you could fix one thing in the financial services industry what would it be?
I personally miss the good old days of companies operating, and making decisions, on the basis of the local communities they’re working within.
Who would be at your dream dinner party?
Being a bit keen on biking, I’d be fascinated to meet Graeme Obree & Mark Beaumont. If family & friends could be there too then that would be a massive bonus….
If you could only listen to one album forever more what would it be?
Daft Punk, Random Access Memories.
Which cartoon character would you most like to swap places with for the day?
Asterix, largely because his rather funky helmet would cover my fulsome bald patch, and I’d love to give Getafix’s magic potion (aka superhuman strength) a whirl.
