Who Am I?

  • Born: Isle of Man

  • Education: Andreas Primary School, Ramsey Grammar School, Isle of Man College and Isle of Man International Business Centre

  • Family: Ellen Callister (Wife)

Business Experience
Prior to being elected I worked in the island’s Finance Sector for over 18 years and have considerable experience in Business Operations, Compliance, Corporate Governance, Finance and Performance Management at a board level, along with my own life experience, all of which I feel has been invaluable when representing the best interests of the island and the people of Onchan.

Professional Qualifications
I am a Fellow with the Chartered Management Institute, a Compliance Professional and a Trust and Estate Practitioner (Dip.(ITM), and I also continue to hold professional memberships with the Chartered Management Institute (FCMI, MCMI) and with the International Compliance Association (MICA).

In my leisure time, I was involved in Isle of Man Cue-Sports for over 24 years until I stepped down from all positions in 2015. I enjoy travelling, DIY, walking and supporting local and international shows at the Gaiety, Villa Marina or around the Island.
