My current role is VP of HR for the UK and Ireland. Twenty-four hours after running the 2014 London Marathon, I stepped on a plane to Canada – bound for our Toronto office on an eight-month international secondment. The initial focus was to support the general manager and lead the hiring of 4 key executive positions.
