A passionate advocate of technology and change, I have a critical eye for seeking out areas of opportunity and where change can have a positive impact to the organisation. My experience comes most notably from regulated financial services organisations across the UK and Internationally. With a history of accountability for various functions spanning all areas of IT (Development, Strategy and Enterprise Architecture, Service Delivery), Commercial, Legal and Procurement practices, Programme and Portfolio Management as well as Leading Mergers, Acquisitions and Business Integration programmes.
