He is working on a number of new sector projects, including Credit Counselling South Africa. Additionally he chairs the Financial Inclusion Centre; the education charity, Credit Action; CCCS Scotland; European Centre for Employee Ownership; and is a member of HM Treasury's Retail Financial Services Forum.

Educated at Cambridge, where he was a major scholar, he was trained as a Russian interrogator during national service. He then worked as a journalist, television trainer and lobbyist advising mainly multinational companies.
