An energetic and dynamic financial services professional with 20+ years experience across retail, corporate, commercial and trading banking units.
A pro-active and innovative PRINCE2 qualified project manager and team manager with a working understanding of financial and risk management resulting in a proven track record of delivering business benefits against imposed timelines. Has successfully managed projects across Finance and Risk divisions by engaging IT teams to deliver strategic solutions.
Having grown the current team from 3 FTE to 17 FTE in 15 months and across three locations, a proven record in building and managing high performing teams has been demonstrated to deliver process improvement solutions for end users.
Possessing excellent communication skills to manage stakeholders at senior levels and resolve risks and issues as they arise, this has enabled me to take on the COO role for the local hub of my finance division.
A driven, focused and motivated self-starter who also works well within teams. A trustworthy, decisive, sociable, gregarious and committed individual who takes immense pride in doing a great job.
Outside of work, as the Treasurer of a local rugby club with turnover of £260k pa, coach of the u14’s rugby team and previously Chair of Governors at the primary school my son attends, I have built up a wealth of knowledge in business operations and volunteer management. Specifically on the education side, managing a school through the academisation process has provided many opportunities to use and develop my skills outside of the work environment.
