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’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 manage Risk Management for PMC in the Americas.  My goal, for all projects, is a fundamental understanding of the needs of the client, which translates into meaningful solutions, succinct analysis and a clear and concise path forward.  I want all of our clients to feel that PMC is in control of the process and that they are in safe hands.

When my three kids aren’t keeping me busy I enjoy amateur mathematics, playing guitar, flying planes and playing soccer.

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!”

Having worked in banking, as a corporate and as a consultant I have a unique insight which allows me to understand the needs and challenges of all parties.

With many years of experience in advising on complex transactions both in risk management and operational treasury I create value for our clients both in developing appropriate hedge strategies as well as ensuring an efficient implementation process.

As a native speaker, our German clients do not meet any language barriers when they deal with PMC which comes in handy especially if hedging is not part of a client’s daily business.

My role at PMC is to provide clients with a complete financial risk management service; starting with identifying and understanding the market risk, devising efficient hedging strategies, right through to cost-effective execution and post trade support.

I have spent over a decade in bank trading rooms. This experience has not only given me a deep understanding of banks’ requirements regarding documentation, pricing, and credit exposure; but also, an understanding of the many challenges businesses face. I believe it is only when there is a deep understanding of both counterparties’ requirements that a successful outcome can be achieved.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with the family, and if the wind is blowing you can find me on the south coast kitesurfing.

I enjoy working with clients that are undergoing changes and have pressing issues that need to be addressed. My thirty years experience in corporate treasury have involved me in all manner of corporate treasury challenges – funding, managing foreign exchange and interest rate risks, developing policies etc – across industries as diverse as technology, real estate, construction and manufacturing.

My approach to unlocking the solution to client needs is to spend a little time with the company to understand both the business and the people, to challenge conventional wisdom, to take management on the journey and to stay with them until they have the resources, policies and procedures to confidently go forward.

In my spare time you will find me an armchair rugby enthusiast and staying active through a variety of pastimes particularly yachting.

I have worked for both multinationals and FTSE-250 sized companies, and therefore can tailor my support to the specific requirements and organisational structure of each client.

I like to look under the bonnet of the treasury function to develop a detailed understanding of the operation, and identify key risks. I believe it’s important to embrace technology and systems wherever possible to enhance operational processes. FX has been a constant theme in my career, and I can help across the full spectrum of the subject from exposure identification to effective market execution.

I hold the Advanced Diploma in Treasury Management (FCT).
At weekends, I like to try and dispel the famous quote from Mark Twain that “golf is a good walk spoiled.”
