Previous experience: I am CEO of international development charity Send a Cow, which is based in Bath and works with smallholder farmers in some of the poorest parts of rural Africa. I have held leadership roles in Send a Cow for the last five years. I trained and qualified as a chartered accountant with a Big Four accounting firm before moving into the business sector.
