I’ve been working in technical leadership roles for over 20 years. My key areas of passion and expertise are in data, business intelligence, information security, operations, compliance and people. During my career, I have spanned a wide range of industries including health, legal, pharmaceuticals, insurance, banking and payments.
My journey with Payen started in 2011. The company, at that time, was a newly formed startup with an innovative exciting vision and a magnetic culture. I joined the small team where our primary focus was to shape and build the company.
My role now is to lead and drive the operational functions within the business, including technical operations, business intelligence, fraud, information security and compliance. Payen is a unique and great place to be with a strong team that is driven, creative, agile and determined.
Outside of work my biggest passion is music. I’m a professional singer/songwriter and also volunteer in the community, leading “singing for the brain” sessions for older people and people living with dementia. I also have an avid interest in health and wellbeing and privately teach yoga and pilates classes!
Following a career in military and civil aviation, I joined a dotcom incubator where I invested in early stage tech businesses.
My journey into the payments industry started in the early 2000s when I joined Monex Financial Products (a DCC company) as General Counsel.
