Executive summary

I bring just under 20 years experience in all aspects of Internal Audit, Risk, Governance and Control. I work with clients of all sizes and in multiples industries, with a specialism in Retail, Pensions and Gaming.

My interest in retail started when I spent two years working in an in-house internal audit team for a global retailer. My experience spans from set up of an assurance framework to delivery of ongoing assurance through Internal Audit, including supporting in-house teams and they look to develop their internal capabilities to align to the needs of the business. I have worked with national and global organisations from FTSE 10 to start up.

I have a strong market focus, having led both the go to market strategies for the Governance, Risk and Control propositions and in the retail space across all risk advisory services. In the risk arena, I work with clients as they are looking to get more clarity around what the barriers are to achieving their objectives, how can these barriers be controlled / removed and how can we ensure that they remain in place. With an increased focus on good governance at the Director level in organisations, such control and understanding has never been more important.
