Group level CFO with more than twenty years experience in the global financial services sector. I have built and led large and diverse finance teams in multiple international organisations with 400+ staff operating in 45 different countries. I have contributed to development and accelerated growth in multiple businesses improving operational performance whilst enhancing corporate governance, transparency and financial structure.
My strength is to engage directly in the business to enable and drive strategy and the performance agenda. I have developed business focused finance capabilities, led strategy development and completed successful mergers and acquisitions, balance sheet re-financing and cost restructuring programmes.
I now spend some of my time working as an advisor to businesses and their boards helping them achieve their goals.
