Startup advisor, consultant, non-executive director, mentor, Funds Industry veteran (20 years in leadership roles) and podcast co-host of MoneyNeverSleeps – getting inside the minds of entrepreneurs and those in the startup ecosystems of Ireland, the UK, Europe and beyond.
Fintech founders and leaders of financial services firms partner with me to develop new markets, build go-to-market strategies, and secure funding for their vision. My clients further benefit from my ability to build synergies between startups and established players through a global network across Europe, the US and Asia-Pacific.
My clients are representative of a deep expertise in financial services, including specialities in fintech, digital assets, blockchain/DLT, venture capital and the investment funds industry.
Prior to my life in the wild, I was the chief operating officer and global head of product development for a division of BNP Paribas and director on the board of its Irish franchise for ten years. I began my career in Boston in 1995 at Fidelity Investments and then departed for six years of servicing hedge funds in Bermuda before moving to Ireland in 2006.
