Having primarily worked for charities supporting children, young people and families he then entered the hospice sector in March 2015 when he took up the role of chief executive for LOROS Hospice in Leicester. As a non-clinician John has been particularly interested to help LOROS develop a firm strategic plan and to confidently pursue this plan in the belief that ‘money follows good work’.

John has an MBA from the University of Strathclyde (2010), is a qualified ILM level 7 Executive Leadership Coach and has a career-long interest in both leadership and developing the potential of others. In this respect John has acted as an Associate Course Director for the Leadership Trust with a wide variety of corporate clients both in the UK and overseas. 

Married with 3 children, John enjoys a number of outdoor pursuits including cycling, sailing and a little fell running. Sadly his body no longer holds the same belief as his mind!
