Alan served 35 years as a top leader in ExxonMobil, a Fortune 5 corporation, as a corporate leader and director of international operating companies. His visionary style of leadership promoted operational excellence and catalyzed the organization to deliver world-class business results.
While growing up in the UK, his father passed away early after battling long-term alcohol and gambling addictions. The impact of these illnesses gave Alan and his mother a determination to rebuild their lives with a renewed sense of purpose. The loss instilled in him a desire to always do better for himself and those around him. Something that has informed his determination to use everything he has learned in life and the world business to do something about the global problem of addiction.
