I am the Global Leader for Financial Markets within IBM's Industry Platforms organisation. As such I work with major clients globally on large transformational engagements and innovation initiatives within the industry. My objective is to grow IBM's business in Financial Markets through assets, capabilities, partnerships and large transactions. Over the last year I have focused on Blockchain deployment in the Financial Markets and Trade Finance working with clients such as CLS, LSEG, DTCC and many others.

My personal skills are in financial markets, business strategy and transformation and blockchain.

In previous roles, I was a Partner in our Consulting business, co-founder of IBM's original Risk Management Practice, which grew from into a multi-million dollar business, and also led IBM's Financial Markets consulting practice in the UK.

In 2012, I was appointed to IBM's Industry Academy, reflecting expertise and leadership with our Financial Markets business globally.
