A Chartered Engineer, Chris has a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Surrey, a post-graduate Diploma in Management Studies and is a Member of both the Institution of Chemical Engineers and the Chartered Management Institute.

Most of Chris’s business experience has been in sales, marketing and general management. For over 17 years, before founding Rosewood Associates in 2001, he worked for US owned multi national plastics companies, (including GE Plastics), in a variety of UK and international roles.

Chris has been the author of a number of business and technical articles and is the co-inventor on two recently filed patent applications for “see through” graphic management systems.
