With 10 years’ experience as part of the Wassenaar Arrangement Experts Group drafting the control text wording, 12 years in MoD as a case assessor and three years as an independent consultant, I bring my 34-year Civil Service knowledge to its full use in advising you on best practice.
In my last role with the Ministry of Defence, where I was in post for 12 years, I was responsible for providing Technical Security advice on Export Licence Applications and Release of Military Information Applications (F680s) and provision of Private Venture Technical Security Grading as follows:
On short-term attachment to the DTI (now DIT) Export Control Organisation, I was responsible for the “Rating” of export licences against current legislation. I was also responsible for the drafting of Open Individual Licences and sitting as a representative of the Technologies Unit on inter-departmental working groups on Open Individual Licences.
On retirement I was elected as an Executive Committee member of EGADD (Export Group for Aerospace, Defence and Dual Use) and served for 6 years. I am now serving on the Compliance and Policy sub committee.
In February I will be joined in the business by my wife, Julie, who has recently completed 38 years in MoD. Julie is a degree qualified Aerospace engineer and has a vast technical experience of engineering in all platforms.
