I have always had an interest in animals and Animal Health. I started my career as a lab technician many years ago and worked my way through to becoming Global Business Manager for Lohmann Animal Health GmbH. I started my own company, Hysolv Ltd, in 2004 and, at the same time, started a consulting business (JB Consulting). My early working life was centred around the South East and Central England, until I started working in Germany in 1995. I now live in Eastern Germany with my partner Heike. I have 3 sons and see them as often as I can in the UK or here in Germany. My hobbies include walking, cycling, travelling, drinking wine, writing songs and books for children.
