It’s been an interesting journey so far. I am an experienced leader across multiple service delivery domains and IT support with 26 years’ experience in the financial industry.

Since 2016, I have led multiple Incident Management teams, RPA Control Room, and Security Admin teams. Most recently, I have led the operational service delivery for AIB life, an Irish Life and Pensions Insurance Company which was set up in 2023 as a joint venture between AIB and Great-West Lifeco and this was definitely one of my notable achievements in my career to date. This involved the recruiting and onboarding of resources across the Contact Centre, Administration, Claims, Underwriting Admin, Complaints, Welcome Calls, and Finance & Accounting. 

​I have led small/medium-sized teams driving change and transition over the last 26 years.​​
