So, who I am? Well, this is a personal and not a ‘corporate’ introduction.
I came into financial services early in my career as a former FX trader, a role that introduced me to the complexities of financial services and the intellectual challenge that the industry gives us. My career later transitioned to operations management and eventually strategic change, optimisation, and consulting where I found my passion. I’m an enthusiastic academic and author that led me in 2013 to complete an applied research masters in Islamic Finance. My masters research enabled the pursuit of my passion for examining and incorporating learning’s from alternative financial models where I later shared my research findings in a recently updated textbook. I’ve been fortunate to work across the globe starting from my first career with the Royal Navy and I’ve led globally distributed matrix teams exceeding 100 members whilst holding accountability for budgets exceeding $60 Million. I’m a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute, it’s great recognition of my experience and the value I offer to my profession. Away from work I love collecting and using 1930’s to 1960’s manual, portable typewriters and playing jazz guitar albeit very badly.
That’s me. Hi
