Having attained an HND in Business Studies at Plymouth Polytechnic, he worked for a manufacturer of garage equipment, initially as a sales engineer in Kent and London, and later as Export Manager. In 1977, he moved to an American competitor, and spent five years travelling North Africa, the Middle East and parts of Europe seeking new distributors and motivating the existing ones.
