Experienced Board Member with International Experience in Fintech, Governance, and Artificial Intelligence

My expertise in financial services as an entrepreneur, investor, and researcher allows me to dive deep, ask sharp questions, and promptly identify the pain points. From there, I work with the C-suite to define the vision and strategy to produce growth, security, and profitability.
As a Board Director, I co-create boards that work -- boards that are focused, draw from a wide network of experts, and are able to move forward a company.

I have advised companies through change, funding, growth transitions, commercial repositioning, governance crisis, and regulatory requirements. Companies that have benefited from my expertise in structural transformation have focused on scaling and commercial strategy while embedding best practice governance, enterprise risk management, and technology governance.
