I am an experienced leader with over 15 years of experience in professional services and financial services institutions. I have led large global teams; often within organisations going through notable change, supporting programmes under regulatory oversight, and have been an approved person with the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
I lead our firmwide digital hub, where I support all UK service lines in articulating and developing their digital service offerings and operating models, from analytics and development to AI and automation. I have spent most of the last decade assuring data quality, data lineages, and testing models in Solvency II, BCBS 239, Single Customer View, MAR, and MIFID/MIFIR reporting.
I have a genuine passion for getting into the detail of systems and code and understanding how models use data through a variety of techniques including code reviews, reconciliations, and testing approaches. I have gained deep subject matter expertise in sanctions compliance and financial crime, not just data integrity, but also from a 1st line operational perspective.
I am a proud father to three young children, Olive, Niamh, and Cate. In my spare time, I am studying for a professional doctorate in data science. When I can, I also enjoy boxing, cycling, and playing guitar (badly).
