After 18 months developing my knowledge of financial planning, resource management and project governance I stepped up to managing my own projects and Project Manager.

My current role is Program Manager, working with the latest Big Data and Machine Learning technologies to deliver Credit Suisse’s strategic eCommunications Surveillance platform. I manage complex global deployments to deliver a robust and stable platform, empowering the firm to quickly identify potentially malicious activity and protect the firm’s reputation. My current project will deploy our platform to the America’s region, increasing the surveillance coverage by 50%.
