As a Client Partner in Alternatives Elect, I focus on national and international search assignments within the financial services sector and financial roles within commerce and industry. After a 15 year executive search career in London, where I completed C-suite mandates within governance and risk management across the financial services sector, I moved to Ireland with my Irish wife and family in 2014 to work for an international financial services recruitment firm in Dublin. A number of these assignments involved re-building major banks in the aftermath of the financial crisis. Searches completed include several Chief Risk Officers and other C-suite executives across corporate lending, real estate, risk technology and restructuring. I have worked in partnership with firms in crisis, who are looking to strengthen their governance and others who are expanding their commercial reach.
The financial services industry is going through era defining change, so clients are demanding a new breed of talent that can balance commercial realities with a regulatory regime that fits the time. Regardless of the mandate, I therefore approach each search with a wide lens and open mind.
Risk is a particular passion and I have been regularly published and interviewed by UK media on risk recruitment and have presented at the Geneva Risk Minds conference. I am a graduate of the London School of Economics with a BSc in Government.
