Area of expertise:

Number of years experience:

United Kingdom

As an experienced leader with deep technical knowledge and a strong humanistic leadership style, I have a demonstrable background leading startups to deliver high-quality, secure technology at global scale. With a focus on execution and a business-minded approach, I have successfully coached and mentored teams to mature rapidly, delivering results and growth for startups in Financial Technology and Artificial Intelligence. My engineering organisation playbook, which includes detailed frameworks for performance, structure, people management, security & risk management, and incident response, has been instrumental in growing startups from pre-seed to successful funding rounds, including an $80m Series B serving billion-dollar multinational clients. With a passion for developing high-functioning teams and a track record of driving results in fast-paced environments, I am confident in my ability to make a significant impact as a Digital Trustee.

I have always had an eye on utilising technology for good, and when I joined Unitary on an interim basis, a company dedicated to making the internet safer using Artificial Intelligence, my passion for tech for good was re-ignited. I was brought in to transform the people side of the technology team, and it was a joy to be able to rally the team behind such strong values. It is my deep-seated belief that the transformational power of technology should be leveraged for societal good. I believe I can contribute meaningfully to this, having sat at the intersection between technology and business as both CTO and a CTO advisor in a wide range of businesses.
