/ / What I do at Synechron

Regulatory Change and Innovating New Solutions.


I am the Head of Regulatory Change and Compliance for the UK. After years of incremental change, firms are now looking to embrace advancing technology to address regulation more strategically and gain better business value, and Synechron is placed ideally to help them. I keep our regulatory change proposition up to date by incorporating regulatory and industry trends from participating in working groups, conferences and enjoy sharing this insight with our clients. As product owner for the Data Science Accelerator for Libor Impact Analysis, I've had a great opportunity recently to apply the use of Natural Language Processing (NLP) & Data Science to a very relevant business use case. I enjoy my role as a line manager and find people development, coaching and mentoring a really rewarding part of my job.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

To be a part of something bigger.

My relationship with Synechron dates to working at a predecessor company, then becoming a Synechron client in my role at an international bank. I have always been impressed with the people at Synechron and how strong relationships form a key part of the business. The firm's global reach and ambition to grow, led by innovation and its diverse range of clients, were all reasons that motivated me to join.

/ / my skills, qualifications and experience

17+ years of experience in Financial Services.

I have over 17 years in financial services from banking operations, operational change and technological change. In recent years, I have placed a focus on transaction reporting and worked across all global jurisdictions. I have a degree in Political Science and an understanding of economics at a macro level.


Cycling, Vinyl Records & The Arts.

I avoid the rush hour by cycling to work on most of the days and am trying to run at a similar level of proficiency. I collect and listen to vinyl records and the current flavor is mostly post-punk and new wave. I also collect sci-fi and existential fiction books. I am a big fan of contemporary art and will always check out a new gallery when I travel. I also volunteer for an outreach charity for the elderly every month.
