What's your favourite restaurant? Lainston House outside Winchester has a relaxed, country-house environment.
Do you prefer healthy or junk food? I'm away from home a lot and try to find healthy options, but sometimes fail.
What would you request as your final meal? Shepherd's Pie cooked by my wife, washed down with Champagne and a box of Beech's chocolates.
What's your favourite tipple? Courage Directors Bitter at The Crown in Axford, Basingstoke.
What would you rescue if your house was burning down? My family first, then as many family photos and videos as possible and a painting I inherited from my grandmother.
What's your fantasy car... and what do you actually drive? I'd probably choose a Bugatti Veron. I actually drive a BMW 330d M Sport - a fantastic car, smooth, powerful and almost practical.
What are you reading?
The Alan Clark Diaries.
What gadgets do you carry? As I'm always on the move, several Kingston Memory Sticks - fabulous for saving work and moving between computers.
What's your most embarrassing professional moment? At a company event in America I tried to lighten up my presentation with a home-made joke, which went down like a lead balloon.
What's your motto for life? Work hard, play hard.
What's the best holiday you've ever had? My boys are now at university so my wife and I took two weeks in Thailand recently. We visited Bangkok and Koh Samui. Such a contrast but a fabulous holiday.
Do you prefer rugby, football or cricket? My eldest son has captained Basingstoke and Salford University rugby clubs, so I am a confirmed rugby fan.
What are your pet hates? People who don't like chocolates, especially Beech's.
