Julian is a Chartered Accountant with over 30 years’ experience in consultancy and strategic management. As a languages graduate Julian’s early career was as a Finance Director in Europe living and working in Paris and Berlin. He was actually in Berlin when the wall came down!
After returning to the UK Julian worked for over 10 years in the Further Education sector holding senior management positions in three Colleges with responsibility for all the key corporate services. The challenges then were very much focused on effective systems, efficient resourcing, sound financial planning and strategic investment in often inadequate facilities. These challenges remain as true today.
Since joining Fusion as a director in 2006 Julian has provided strategic consultancy to a wide range of Colleges in the Further Education sector both on bespoke assignments and in interim management roles. A particular focus has been on supporting the delivery of capital projects and assisting Colleges to find ever more innovative efficiencies within tight budgetary constraints.
Outside of work Julian continues to travel and enjoys a range of sports, particularly squash and golf.
