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 and 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 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.
