I joined our financial services group in 2022 to lead our business development activities in the banking sector. I work with all services across our audit, tax, and advisory teams to bring new propositions to the market, and reinforce cross-sector and service line activity in the group. I also manage our relationships with banking trade associations.

I regularly attend client scope meetings and conversations around the regulatory landscape, while considering the operational impact that this has on firms.

With over 15 years of experience in the banking sector, including working for major retail and international banks, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise to my clients. To maintain my high-level knowledge and stay ahead of trends and regulatory changes, I attend industry events, network with professionals in the field, and stay up to date with regulatory publications. This commitment to continuous learning and industry engagement has helped me build a large network of contacts across the sector.

Outside of work, I attend live rugby, football, or boxing matches to experience the excitement first-hand, and explore new places and cultures by planning trips to destinations I haven't visited before. I also continue my passion for running by participating in organised races, such as marathons or local running events.
