BUSINESS ANALYST & RESEARCH MANAGER
Hailing from Yeovil in Somerset, Ashley is one of 10 siblings. With his parents making miracles in the kitchen, he soon learned to appreciate the importance of good quality food! In his teenage years Ashley competed in the Pole Vault for his County before an injury forced him to retire. As an adult Ashley developed a keen interest in hill walking and enjoys drinking, eating and playing video/board games with his friends and family.
After completing a degree in Politics and Economics at Reading University, Ashley began working as a trainee accountant at Old Mill Accountants and Financial Planners where he gathered experience working with SMEs across all sectors, including Food and Drink. Whilst still in the process of completing his studies, Ashley has joined BIC Innovation for a year-long secondment, seeking to combine his experience and contribute to the success of the Sustainable Scale Up Cluster.
