Meet the Senior leadership team:
These are the volunteer change-makers at the heart of our charity.
Founder & Chief Executive Officer
With a background of 20 years in media law, a passion for connecting people and problem solving, and two small children to inspire me; I’m passionate about raising awareness and bringing people together to make simple but impactful green changes at a local level.
My mixed Persian heritage and lived experience has highlighted how my family and many other Middle Eastern, African and Asian families are disproportionately affected by high carbon lifestyles and climate change. It fuels my passionate focus to help make sure sustainable living is normalised for everyone and practical support becomes accessible, inclusive and appealing for all.
I believe in the power of collaboration and that partnership building at all levels is key to halving carbon emissions asap in the UK. When I am not working for the charity or with my young family, I offer external support as a speaker, trainer and facilitator.

Chief Strategy Officer
I work as the CSO alongside running an Environment, Social Justice and Strategy consultancy and an Executive coaching business. I chair a grant-giving charity board, and a local school governing body, as well as volunteering in the community through Bromley Y youth mentoring, and as part of the Rotary.
I passionately believe that we have a responsibility to our local communities and the global community to use our skills for good. Therefore, I use my senior leadership, strategy, service design and project experience skills to do just that, no matter what hat I am wearing that day.

Chief Operating Officer
I love the wonderful community that we have here in Bromley and the neighbouring boroughs. I also feel passionate about learning about sustainability as well as creating partnerships with local community groups and businesses. I am an IT project manager and business analyst by trade and volunteer for Greener & Cleaner Bromley (& Beyond), Friends of Widmore Green Spaces and Friend of Bickley Primary School.
Chief Marketing Officer
I’m Rachel. Having moved from central London, I love the sense of community and all the amazing green space we’re fortunate enough to enjoy in south east London. I’ve worked in Communications for over 20 years now, and am passionate about helping as many people as possible feel empowered to make changes that will protect our environment for the future. Alongside volunteering for Greener and Cleaner, I work for a charity that supports families with disabled children.
The Senior leadership team are now supported by our new Director.
I grew up in Coventry but came to Goldsmiths University as a student and have lived and worked in SE London ever since.
Most of my working life has been within the local authority sector – in a range of different roles but always alongside communities to help create change. I’m a people person and at my best when I’m part of a team where there is a diversity of experiences and skills alongside the humility and desire to challenge and learn from each other. Working with Greener & Cleaner provides the perfect opportunity for me to apply my own experience to the biggest challenge that we all face.
Outside of work, family is very important to me and with my wife Jo I have 5 grown-up children and 4 grand-children. I enjoy good food and red wine, books and going to the theatre. I like to watch most sports but particularly football and specifically Coventry City.
Head of Finance and Resources
I was born in South East London and have lived here ever since, most recently in Bromley borough.
I’ve always worked in finance, having started my career training with one of the top 5 UK accounting firms. I later progressed to consulting on business planning, administration and finance for a range of small businesses whilst running my own business in the leisure industry. I have worked with UK charities, both in the UK and overseas, for some 25 years and have studied Charity Finance and Accounting as a specialism at London South Bank University.
I have a keen interest in local issues and community involvement, and am glad to be supporting Greener and Cleaner in both its community-powered Hub, and further afield.
When I’m not working I like to swim, read, garden, watch sport and, most of all, spend time with family and friends.
