I run our strategy and operations consulting practice in Asia, advising our clients across the region on a range of topics covering the entire value chain of financial services - for example digital transformation, finance and risk, compliance and workforce transformation.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

Cutting-edge work, thought leadership and offering a holistic value proposition

Having spent my entire previous career prior to joining Synechron in the financial services space, I have witnessed the increasing importance financial institutions are placing on technology and digital innovation. Being able to offer a holistic value proposition to our clients - across digital, technology and consulting was a big draw for me. Our culture is that of a challenger - a young, fast-growing company challenging the conventional consulting and technology players. This, paired with the cutting-edge work and thought leadership we bring to the table is what drives and motivates me every day.

/ / MY SKILLs, qualifications and experience

M.A. in Economics and International Relations and experience across various Strategy Consulting roles

I joined Synechron from a major strategy consulting firm and have executed projects around key strategic initiatives for financial services clients throughout Asia. Prior to this, I spent 8 years working for a global investment bank in various roles across London and Hong Kong covering front office fixed income and equities (origination, structuring, front line sales and COO positions) and finally ran their corporate strategy function for the Asian financial markets business. I hold an M.A. in economics and international relations from the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Playing the piano and spending time with my family

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my young family and am passionate about music (I play the piano whenever I can find the time in the evenings and weekends).
