Joining Tenet Group as Group Regulatory Director in April 2013, I have brought the breadth of my experience to lead business change through the compliance operations of one of the UK’s largest adviser support groups. I am accountable for the compliance support services ranging from Compliance Delivery, Regulatory Policy, Technical Services & Research, Adviser Training, Conduct Risk and Legal functions.
Starting my legal career with national law firm Pinsent Mason, my focus was on managing commercial contract negotiations and disputes with a broad portfolio of clients which served me well when I eventually moved into the financial services sector.
A period within the non-for profit sector provided the opportunity to network extensively to deliver dynamic leadership programmes and lead a highly successful regional office.
Joining HML, a subsidiary of Skipton Building Society, in 2001 as mortgage regulation was emerging (the first time round) I was introduced to the world of the FSA and have been closely involved in regulatory compliance ever since. In 2006 I joined Skipton Building Society as Group Secretary and then moved to Coventry Building Society as General Counsel before returning to Yorkshire to join Tenet in 2013.
In each role I’ve done I’ve constantly evolved and changed – something that I thrive on. With a skill for communicating and influencing, I engage with people at all levels and know that I am at my best with the support of, and supporting, a team.
I live in North Yorkshire with my husband and enjoy walking the Dales and hosting weekend visits with our grown up children.
