As the Practice Leader for the firm’s Financial Services Group, I believe that we are a positive force within the industry, working passionately with our clients and in the market, to drive; trust, integrity and value.
I have 39 years’ experience within the sector, 30 of which were spent in industry operating at Retail Board Level within RBS and Santander and my experience spans Retail Banking, Wealth Management and SME Banking. I advise on a range of business challenges focusing on transformation programmes linked to changes in consumer needs & behaviour, M&A transactions, integration, joint ventures and growth.
I have a track record of integrating, building and growing businesses and have led a number of major and challenging change initiatives always focused on delivering short term outcomes and sustainable long term results.
Outside of work I am a member of the management committee of Shelter in Scotland, working to alleviate the distress caused by homelessness and bad housing. I am also a keen cyclist, undertaking charity rides in the UK as well as taking part in a number of cycling sportives. 2016’s challenge being the Maratona Dles Dolomites.
