A Chartered Surveyor and experienced Project Manager by profession, Ray spent 17 years in the NHS, starting out as an NHS General Management Trainee and ending up as a Director of Estates & Facilities in Swansea. Ray has also worked in the higher education sector in Wales and Ireland; delivering mergers and acquisitions, managing strategic capital development projects, and leading estates and other professional support teams at a variety of establishments and most recently the University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
His particular professional interests centre on team development, ‘joined up’ working and involving those who deliver day to day in the design of new initiatives.
Ray is a family man and likes to connect with the community he lives in. He supports major and local charities directly and indirectly through various fund-raising activities.
Despite everything he had achieved Ray believed it was a good time to approach new challenges and he is particularly looking forward to working once again within the NHS sector.
