Group Chief Executive Officer
My job is to lead the JCRA team across our offices in the UK, the US and Canada. My work is extremely varied day to day and I remain involved in many advisory engagements for clients across our specialist sector teams. I enjoy spending time with both existing and potential clients and discussing the value that JCRA’s expertise can bring to their risk management decisions.

I joined JCRA in 2004 in the Edinburgh office where I advised clients on hedging against FX and interest rate risk. I relocated to London In 2010, after being appointed as a Director and joining the Group Board.
In 2012 I was part of the management team that completed the MBO, moving on to execute the second phase of that in 2017, taking in our first tranche of external capital and allowing the founding directors of JCRA to retire.
As CEO I am part of the Group Board, which means relentlessly driving our growth agenda and, of course, our regulatory and compliance obligations.
I love to be active and enjoy running and swimming. I am also a voracious reader and am never without a book in my bag. My two daughters Eva and Isla keep me busy the rest of the time and weekends are spent supporting their pursuits, with downtime usually being a family meal and a movie.
