Chris has recently retired after a very long and active career working in a range of business sectors. As a GPO technical apprentice, he rose to the rank of technical officer and also acted as assistant area engineer. He then set up his own textiles manufacturing company supplying major high street stores together with securing overseas contracts. Chris has also worked for a health and safety company handling the requirements of national and multi-national companies. He was ultimately responsible to the directors to run and manage the tender department which involved tenders valued in excess of £10 Million.
Chris is from North Staffordshire and is actively involved in charity work. He is keen to support children from disadvantaged areas such as Stoke-on-Trent achieve their full potential and would like to offer his professional skills to support the Trent Community Trust.
