As CEO, my major responsibility is to ensure our clients receive a consistently high quality and market leading service. Many of our clients are long standing so it is essential that in return for their trust, we take control and leverage our expertise to their advantage.

Given the complexity of the financial environment, I believe that only by empowering our consultants to challenge the norm can an optimal solution be found. My extensive knowledge of financial sponsor transactions means I know exactly what investors require and the responsiveness and detail they demand.

In my spare time I play golf regularly and enjoy playing football, albeit I have been recently dropped to a sideline role.

I joined PMC as CFO having used the company’s services in previous finance roles.  Having had a wide range of experience over 18 years, firstly as an advisor in a transaction environment and more recently in fast-growing private-equity backed Corporates.

I appreciate the differing perspectives and wealth of experience that the team here at PMC can bring to high pressure situations, and the value (both in financial terms and independent advice in complex situations) that that can deliver.

As CFO, my role involves reviewing business strategy, and managing a number of key business functions and processes – my focus through all of these is to ensure our client teams have all they need to operate effectively.

Appointed Chairman following Inflexion’s investment in PMC in October 2018. I have extensive experience in the Private Equity industry and have been chairman and NED of a number of private equity backed businesses.

I have worked with PMC for over 20 years and believe that its independent advice can add real value in the often-neglected area of treasury operations.

Appropriate strategies for cash, foreign exchange and interest rate risk management can make a real difference to a company’s financial performance and risk management. The team at PMC has advised corporates, infrastructure funds, and private equity backed companies over a long time, and is the natural port of call for treasury related services.

While the world in which PMC operates has changed enormously over the last 30 years, the principles upon which the company was founded have not varied and would be – indeed still are – recognised by PMC’s first clients. Independence, integrity and impartiality are the source of PMC ‘s success and while the individual business challenges (technological, regulatory, economic, legal, etc.) have changed over time these values remain uncorrupted and are in large part the reason for the company’s longevity. As founder and Honorary President of PMC my continued association with the company reflects its commitment to its original principles and is a source of personal pride to me.

I lead PMC’s North American team in bringing operational Treasury solutions to our clients. This means everything from helping build and run Treasuries through to developing and delivering solutions to improve or enhance Treasury activities.

I’ve spent more than 25 years building, running and improving Treasury operations for a broad range of public and private companies around the world across most industries. In complex and transitional environments, I can leverage my experience and the team’s skills to make Treasury one less thing for you to worry about.

When I can I spend time with my wife and two sons, and also enjoy playing soccer, racing cars, triathlons and skiing.

I joined PMC to lead and grow the Asia Pacific Operational Treasury and Risk Management businesses. I bring experience, a passion for finding solutions and an empathy to client problems which will develop and deepen our client relationships and shape our future strategy.

I have 22 years of markets and client experience. Most recently as an MD at Deutsche Bank for 2 years and prior to that as an MD at Goldman Sachs, where I was for 12 years. In both those roles I managed large Liability Risk Management businesses across Europe and significantly developed their Corporate and Sponsor Solutions business and strategy. In between I spent time in Asia on the investment side working with High Net Worth clients and Family offices actively investing and trading across markets.

When financial markets and family aren’t keeping me busy I enjoy exotic travels, playing tennis, am a big foodie and love footie. My clients, colleagues, family and friends can always be sure they will “Never walk alone!”

My role is to assist companies to focus on key treasury priorities such as cash flow forecasting and planning, cash and debt management, insurance, and risk management.

My work experience spans 20+ years at both public and private companies.  Having been the Treasurer for a large, private equity backed company, including leading it through the carve-out process, I bring this perspective and experience to each assignment.

While no two projects are the same, I am able to leverage my experience, as well as that of my PMC colleagues, to ensure that our clients’ goals will be achieved.

The PMC difference is that, while we are consultants, we are actually interim hands-on managers who do the day-to day work necessary to get the results our clients demand.

In my role as a Risk Management Analyst, I provide clients interest rate and foreign exchange hedging solutions using modelling and in-depth market analysis as well as ensuring smooth and cost efficient execution of the chosen strategy for PMC clients.

My background is in Finance and Risk Management with 5 years of Local Asian Markets experience in the banking industry. During my time at Standard Chartered Bank in Korea and Singapore, I worked with both Asian and MNC clients. Hedging requires a good understanding of local regulations, onshore and offshore markets and an appreciation of the vagaries of each market. At PMC I will be leveraging this knowledge and will take a thorough approach to each transaction with accountability, patience and a keen eye for detail.

Outside work, I enjoy painting and playing golf.

Many years of experience in corporate banking, corporate Treasury management and Consulting have provided me broad insight into the structure of an efficient Treasury function.  From establishing bank account structure to developing consolidated cash forecasts, I immerse myself in learning about the company in order to implement the best possible structure and operations.

My goal always is to provide clients with a seamless transition to the new Treasury environment and to incorporate interdependencies with multiple functional areas within the company.  The greatest benefit I offer to Private Equity Sponsors is to complete this process without any deleterious impact on the company’s operations.  This is what I strive for and accomplish.

Managing a private equity transaction will present a fair share of risks. One risk not worth taking is with the development of the Treasury function. With so many things to consider when creating a new Treasury Department, it’s important to work with someone who’s done this before.

I’ve played a big role in the implementation and ongoing successes of the Treasury function for three large multinational companies; I have extensive knowledge in managing Treasury operations, having held manager and director roles for 15 progressive years. I’ve consistently delivered best practices, a high level of automation, and highly effective internal controls. Treasury is a crucial cog in the wheel of any finance department. One of my biggest strengths is the ability to mesh with other departments of an organization.

Whether working with Legal, Human Resources, the Controller’s group, FPA Tax, etc., I know what it takes to extract the most value from Treasury and achieve optimal results.

My role at PMC has allowed me to roll up my sleeves and jump right into various projects. Whether working on a large or small assignment, I always strive to find permanent solutions backed by written policies and procedures.

I am particularly effective at forging strong working collaborations with partner areas such as Finance, Tax, Legal, etc., with internal client areas such as Operations, Real Estate, and IT, and with external partners such as banks and rating agencies.

With PMC, I am proud to be part a high quality team with a broad and extensive base of relevant experience and skills.

I work with clients on interim and advisory positions to establish, manage, or optimize all aspects of their operational and strategic treasury activities. Key strengths include providing leadership in planning and executing processes that result in maximum cash and liquidity, while minimizing operational and financial risk for multi-national organizations.

I have spent the majority of my career, spanning 25+ years, building and managing world-class treasury capabilities for a diverse set of companies. I have hands-on expertise in establishing and maintaining global liquidity structures, cash flow forecasting, debt management and capital market activity, inter-company loan portfolios, daily cash positioning and mobilization, foreign exchange hedging programs, including hedge accounting, and comprehensive insurance program marketing efforts. I have a proven record of implementing the technology, policies, and procedures necessary to enhance visibility, control, and compliance for public and private companies.

I am passionate about helping companies improve the way they manage and protect their cash asset, with smart treasury solutions. I am happy and proud to be part of the PMC Treasury team to do just that.

I bring a deep knowledge and understanding of the broad treasury operation to my clients and help develop strong internal processes and team development and as well as a strong background in third party negotiations (debt, risk management, credit).

My 25+ years of treasury experience have been centered around establishing full treasury operations, both domestic and global, for companies that either being spun-off or recently divested.  I have been the individual responsible for every detail including building a team, debt portfolio, risk and insurance management, cash management, credit and foreign currency management and merger & acquisition analysis.

In my spare time I enjoy softball and volleyball, travel and spending time with family and friends.

My role is to ensure the treasury function supports the client’s business goals.  It is a collaborative engagement to deliver solutions that optimize liquidity, manage risks, promote efficiencies and improve the bottom line.

Success is achieved through deployment of best practices gained through my 30+ year career in finance and leading global treasury operations at Fortune 500 and innovative companies.  They are grounded in principles of automation, centralization, documentation and controls which enable scalability.  I lead by example with a roll up the sleeves aptitude and respectful communication across functional teams.

I am honored to round out my work experience with volunteer opportunity addressing homelessness as executive board member of Habitat for Humanity Metro West/Greater Worcester, MA.
