I have a passion for the engineering and automation / integration of technologies into wider IT ecosystems.
With more than 17 years of experience working in a diverse range of computing disciplines, 13 years of which have been gained within the financial industry, I can bring a well rounded and informed perspective to any product, project or team.
My current responsibilities include two multi-million dollar products which consist of ten sub-products. For these I create three year roadmaps, incorporating staffing, budgets, chargeback, release and demand management plans.
I enjoy regularly meeting with both internal and external customers and stakeholders, utilising my experience to understand what it takes to create, develop and support products at scale. These sessions help me to gather a growing and ever changing list of customer requirements, whilst allowing me to showcase new product ideas and gauge the success of my current portfolio.
My insight and strong communication skills help me to successfully facilitate relationships between different teams. For example, the alliances I have forged between both the engineering and support teams at Morgan Stanley have enabled me to help them prioritise their tasks, ultimately ensuring a consistent delivery with a high adoption rate.
Vendor management has also proved to be a strong area for me and has allowed me to influence the roadmaps of many third party products, driving multi-year development, mutual testing and ultimately wider adoption by both Morgan Stanley and external customers.
