Our Prospective Parliamentary Candidate

Darren Selkus

I'm Darren Selkus, a 48 year-old husband and father of two who only considered entering politics in May this year.

The result of the biggest vote in our nations long and established history has been ignored by the very politicians elected to represent us. Trust in politics and democracy is gone, the people have lost their voice. I have no choice but to stand up and do whatever I can to change the situation. 

I have no experience in politics but this gives me the advantage of not having to worry about a political career. I can bring to bear real life experiences to best represent the people of Epping Forest.

For the last 17 years I have been the chairman and CEO of UV Group Plc, a wood veneer products manufacturing and international trading company located nearby in Walthamstow. This gives me considerable experience in business and a broad appreciation of the challenges facing small and large companies and their employees today.

Before entering the timber industry, I completed an economics degree at Reading University where I joined the British Army.

For ten years I was an infantry officer with Oxford University OTC, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers and the London Regiment (TA) retiring at the rank of Captain in 1998.

I am a keen Obstacle Course Racer (OCR) who represented Team UK in the World Championships 2016, 2018 & will be doing so again 12th October 2019 at Nuclear Races, Kelvedon Hatch.
