For the last 15 years I have worked in the alternative asset management industry at two of the largest fund of fund providers. I have created infrastructure and teams from scratch as well as adopted and restructured existing technology teams and infrastructure. I believe technology is a technical extension of the business and that strong partnership is vital to the success of any business. Despite being at a senior level, I regard myself as a hands-on leader who gets closely involved in software design and architecture and early phases of project delivery to ensure my vision and goals are met. I believe that investing personal ‘equity’ into projects and creating a strong efficient team with the correct level of leadership, development and motivation are key to the team’s success.
