Board professional – guiding principles.
My overall goal is to contribute to the development and growth of complex organisations, and continue to learn and develop in collaboration with others. The headlines for what I bring to the table, building on a 28 year operational career, are: Operational knowledge, Risk/Regulatory focus, and International Leadership experience. Originally a Master of Law the majority of my career has been within the financial services industry, latest as CEO and member of the Board of Management of a large International Insurer. In addition, board experience from a number of boards (Fit&Proper approved).
On a personal level I focus on clear deliveries in organisations and environments undergoing continuous change and strive to create a work atmosphere in which understanding of risk, collaboration, a sense of urgency, and rapid execution of well understood plans lead to bottom-line measurable success.
I tend to view the world holistically, pragmatically, and with a smile and use this approach when implementing fit for purpose corporate governance structures, corporate restructuring processes, capital management processes and integrating global practices into local practices in all cases – without losing business momentum.
