I have always been drawn to business and helping businesses achieve their goals.

From an early age I helped my father run his own small business. Navigating the recession of the early 90’s gave me an insight into how lending institutions can help or hinder a business. This led to a passion to help businesses to manage change and risk.

Having trained and qualified as a certified accountant at Nokia in the early 90’s, I subsequently became their Treasury Accountant, which shaped my career in risk management.

In the early 2000’s I moved from the Corporate world to banking and joined RBS Financial Markets. Until recently I worked at various banks, helping SME and Large Corporate clients to hedge their market risks, determine their borrowing levels and foreign exchange requirements.
