What drives me

The heartbeat of the Investec brand which exists in the bold, adventurous, curious people that work here. A highlight was handing over the Tri Nations trophy to the Springboks in Hamilton, New Zealand.

My interest

I have 10 books on my bedside table at any one time. Partly because I love the sound of a cracking spine and smell of fresh pages. But also because I love the seduction of a novel, the intensity of a business book and the advice from biographies. There is also always a copy of Wallpaper magazine. The wonder of art and design excites, delights and amazes me.
