I am proud to be the fourth generation of the Swan family to work for the company. As Managing Director I am committed to expanding the business into new markets by building on our firm foundation of trust, experience and a passion for our industry.
I joined the company in 2002 to launch the new Carbon Nanomaterials business – just one of the products which demonstrate our drive for innovation. I took over as Managing Director in 2006 and, in addition to my responsibilities to Thomas Swan, I currently sit on the Board of Innovate UK, the Chemical Industries Association and the Chemistry Growth Partnership. I also chair the Advisory Board of the Centre for Education Collaboration at York University.
After graduating from Durham University in 1998 I started my working life as a Scientific Affairs Manager for Monsanto Plc. - followed by two years at Regester Larkin Ltd., providing technical and scientific advice to major international companies. My focus is now on leading Thomas Swan into an exciting new future, developing our credentials as an innovative global player and to maintain our core values of outstanding quality and customer service.
