Turnarounds / Fundraising (Debt & Equity)

As a specialist banker, I have started new companies and rescued others

on the brink of failure. I possess the ability to raise funds and build

infrastructures that facilitate and transform good ideas into profitable

businesses. In my banking career I have managed up to 200+ direct reports

and profit centers of $4M+.

My comprehensive understanding of profit center activities brings a good

working knowledge of global finance markets and regulations. A sharp focus

relative to customer service and recognition allow me to establish delivery

path impacts on both market perception and growth.

o Identifying opportunities and developing banking solutions

o Credit assessment and delegated lending authority

o Launching and expanding domestic and international business

o Creating and implementing customized growth plans

o Leading high-performance, multi-national teams

Known for being capable, confident and a team player, I am equally

comfortable working independently. I am an effective change merchant, task

and goal oriented and able to meet tight deadlines. My experience is

supported by an MBA from Macquarie University.
