Work history

About me

I have around 25 years of experience as a finance professional, working both in public policy, and in commercially-focused roles in banking and asset management, for a range of British, American, and Canadian institutions. I have a research background (economics, finance, politics) and am comfortable analysing complex data and reports; leading diverse, multifunctional teams; engaging in Board/C-suite/Trustee level projects; formulating and communicating strategy to be pitched to a variety of audiences; and representing organisations in public fora (including TV, radio and print media).

What am I looking for

I am keen to leverage my knowledge and experience to work in Trustee/NED roles with charities focused on social mobility & the provision of life-enriching opportunities for all; and financial inclusion & education.
