Marc was raised in a small rural Lincolnshire village and moved to the outskirts of Lincoln once married to his wife Rachel where they currently live with their daughter Tabitha.
Marc has a wide range of experience including many years assisting with people with housing issues, running his own successful businesses and as a board member for Lincoln Business Improvement Group (Lincoln BIG), on Lincolnshire’s Drainage Boards, Investors in Lincoln and the Brayford Trust.
His interest in public service started with getting involved in a range of local community groups and campaigning for improvements to the local area. He has helped to set up youth groups, sat on residents panels working with police to deal with crime and anti-social behaviour and has been a school governor at two schools, one mainstream and one helping primary aged children with behavioural difficulties.
Marc has previously been Deputy Leader on the City of Lincoln Council gaining a range of experiences from leading on planning, economic development, finance and housing. In 2013 Marc stood for Lincolnshire County Council and is currently the Executive member for Finance, overseeing the £1 billion annual budget as well as being responsible for 123 farms across the county covering some 20000 acres.
Marc is a Lincolnshire man born and bred and cares passionately about our county and the need to constantly strive to improve things for the residents, businesses and visitors who come here. Whether it’s protecting people like his mother who now lives alone or ensuring the future is a safe one for children like his daughter Marc believes it really matters that everything possible is done to make Lincolnshire a place to be proud of.
