Before joining RSM, Edward designed and led the delivery of the Western Australian Government’s Food & Beverage Fund. The fund provided a package of grant funding and industry capability initiatives designed to transform Western Australia’s post-farm gate agrifood sector. Central to the fund was the $25m Value Add grants program providing financial incentives for food & beverage manufacturers to implement or de-risk investments that diversify, grow or relocate operations within WA advancing WA businesses’ sustainability credentials.  

Prior to this, Edward worked in professional services for over a decade delivering large-scale transformation programs with clients across a range of portfolios at both the Federal and State level of government in the UK and Australia. 

"I thrive bringing my clients a blend of this international perspective, strategic acumen, and an ability to simplify complexity. Be that working in government addressing macro-level challenges such as developing an industry sector, assisting a country to map its food supply chain or working with a small business to shape and articulate their business growth strategy."

Edward has always been a Lego fan. He finds that there is something meditative about clearing your mind of daily work and life issues to focus completely on the build process.

Football is his passion. Edward is an ardent Liverpool supporter and can be found on the touchline coaching his son's team.
