Born and educated in Cambridge, England, Neil was only too keen to follow his father’s international success in the world of commerce, and so having cut his teeth in the construction industry, he manoeuvred himself into the competitive world of component distribution and sales. Rapidly amassing vast knowledge of the installation and technical supplier relationship, he forged his way into business development, where, in the midst of a corporate merger, he successfully reacquainted existing clients with a now hybrid business model, while setting a new company record for his efforts.
Following consistent success in a number of other sales and account management fields, Neil then chose to enter the recruitment industry, where he immediately excelled at cross-industry networking resulting in consistent national placements. This prompted a bold decision to establish his own specialist construction recruitment firm, tailored exclusively to the needs of senior construction management. Within months of starting his venture, Neil had secured approved supplier status with many of the elite national and international construction brands operating today.
Sadly, the wake of the banking crisis decimated the UK construction industry, and so a decision was made to re-enter education with the goal of studying law, whereupon Neil commenced his legal studies in 2013 before proudly graduating in autumn 2016 with his LL.B (Hons) law degree. While at university, Neil discovered a natural affinity with a subject that soon earned both respect from his faculty tutors and a recommendation to remain in the field of written research. Since that time, Neil has written and published his first book and aims to firmly secure himself in the writing and research field of domestic and international laws.
This realisation and sense of personal fulfilment undoubtedly founded the design and build of Black Letter Publishing, a digital manifestation of Neil’s passion for writing, researching and sharing all forms of legal insight to those who appreciate law and jurisprudence in its written form. So, at the point of you reading this, you become witness to the carefully laid foundations of a passionate endeavour that will continue well into his golden years.
