After graduating with a Classics degree from Durham University, Max spent three years training to become a chartered accountant at PwC, providing assurance services to Barclays and other banks. He then worked as a commercial analyst at Sky and most recently as finance & business development manager at Virgin Pure.
Outside work, Max loves playing and watching sport, going to the cinema and theatre and is an avid podcast listener. He would also add to that the not-so-guilty pleasure of collecting quotes and he takes a big interest in both writing and education. Travel is Max’s other big pastime and he recently made an ambitious and financially regrettable agreement to try to see all the modern and natural wonders of the world before he’s 40.
