Mary has been a supporter of Prisoners Abroad since 2005, when she saw a documentary about Bang Kwang Central Prison, which featured a British prisoner who mentioned how the charity was helping him.  Her interest in Prisoners Abroad grew steadily as a result of the charity’s inclusive approach to individual supporters and the inspirational quality of the newsletters. 

Mary has a corporate background with experience in business management and IT and has worked as a consultant and senior level leader in a number of large global corporations, most recently overseeing service transition for BP’s largest international IT programmes in Group Finance and Retail.  She also has five years’ experience as a company-appointed Trustee Director for a UK occupational pension fund.
