I lead the business consulting practice within the financial services group, following an acquisition in April 2011 by Grant Thornton of SMART from LECG where I was managing director. My core area of focus has been change management within capital markets, having spent 15 years with Cap Gemini, before joining Commerzbank and Computershare.
My key expertise lies in operational transparency and outsourcing / insourcing advisory work. Previously I have launched a joint venture with a global investment bank (to form a back office settlements company focused on the OTC cash derivatives market place and also a joint venture with a leading futures exchange to set up a new vehicle to commercialise and sell its trading engine.
A keen rugby player in my youth, I retain a passion for the game. I love cooking, fine wine and walking in the mountains of the Lake District.
