My first career experience was with Nat West Bank, then later with HSBC, in London. After 9 years in line banking,I became involved with the I.T. department. From there I was recruited by Misys, a specialist provider of I.T. solutions to banks internationally. Up until 1998, I held multiple roles, but mostly project manager and program director for banking systems projects/programs in more than 10 countries. In 1999 I set up my own consultancy business and performed various advisory/consultancy roles for banks in multiple countries. My most senior role was as the acting C.I.O. for a small Russian bank.
