I started my professional life as a marketer within the financial services and professional services industries.

I quickly discovered my forte was helping organisations commercialise regulatory change and was part of the leadership teams that launched three new financial services businesses to market in response to new regulations.

In the run-up to GDPR, I realised that there were huge opportunities to help organisations harness the potential of data protection and moved into data protection, spending 13 months as a consultant working with a major challenger bank to uplift and mature their data protection stance. Following this, I was offered the role of Director of Consultancy Services at a consultancy firm in 2019, with specific responsibility for data protection consultancy. I joined Gemserv in 2021 as Head of Data Privacy.
