Max is the global health programme coordinator for the Longitude Prize on Dementia and the Longitude Prize on Antimicrobial Resistance.

Before joining Challenge Works he worked for a number of independent marketing agencies. As an account manager, he oversaw the production of a range of creative campaigns and events for brands such as Adidas and Samsung.

Max studied international relations at the University of Leeds and has always had a deep interest in global affairs, political challenges and social and economic change. He is inspired by the tangible impact that challenge prizes can have on improving lives and bringing about change.

Outside of work, you will likely find him in the kitchen, exploring the UK by bike or foot or plotting a new creative side project.
