As Head of Financial Crime Compliance at the ICA, I look after all our financial crime courses and their international delivery. Our courses cover everything from AML and sanctions through to fraud and anti-bribery and my team and I keep our courses current and fresh, whilst travelling the world getting to meet like-minded risk professionals.
I am a financial crime prevention practitioner at heart, having joined the ICA from Barclaycard where I was Head of Financial Crime Strategy and Control. Both are innovative, fast paced and growing businesses and even though I have nearly 20 years’ experience in the field of financial crime prevention I still find myself learning every day. Most of those 20 years have been spent in financial services for global banking names like Lloyds Banking Group and Barclays, always in financial crime prevention roles.
My focus has been primarily European and North American jurisdictions. My career began in HMRC, where my first experience of the wonderful world of Financial Crime regulation was in identifying cases of tax evasion for prosecution under the then newly introduced UK Proceeds of Crime Act.
