Fred joined techUK in April 2018, as the Head of Defence Programme at techUK. Before joining, he worked as the Defence Programme Manager at ADS, the national trade association representing Aerospace, Defence, Security & Space companies in the UK for 3 and a half years.

At ADS, Fred was responsible for the organisation’s defence programme of industrial engagement, including a number of member led executive boards and special interest groups, and several high profile defence events. Fred also led the team’s external communications, providing members with a monthly defence bulletin and access to business opportunities. Through his time at ADS, Fred has developed a strong network of contacts in the MOD, Front Line Commands and industry.

Before starting his career in defence, Fred graduated from Loughborough University with a BA in International Relations, and worked as a researcher for a Member of Parliament.

Outside of work, Fred loves to ski, although he would be the first to admit that his ability does not match is passion for the sport.
