I joined AXA XL in 2014 from the asset management division of Morgan Stanley, where I led the implementation of the operational risk program. Earlier, I headed the North America operational risk practice for Marsh and served as the Advising Coordinator to the Operational Risk Industry Consortium, working with international financial regulators to develop guidance for the use of insurance as a risk and capital mitigant. I’ve also held positions with Aon’s operational risk practice and the investment banking division of Goldman Sachs.
I hold a Bachelor of Economics degree and a Graduate Diploma in banking and finance from Monash University, as well as a Post-Graduate Diploma in applied finance and investment from the Securities Institute of Australia. I’m based in London.
