Martin is a business analyst and project manager. Equally comfortable with technical and business issues, he combines strong analytical and technical skills with a pragmatic approach to delivering business objectives.
The capability and creativity to think laterally about complex problems and develop practical solutions has seen him apply his skills in a wide range of areas: education; healthcare; engineering services; local government as well as financial services.
Within the financial services sector, his analysis experience is diverse : investment and retail banking; Treasury and money market trading; Fund administration; deal capture; accounting; settlement; reconciliation; data warehousing; regulatory reporting, internet banking; client take-on and compliance.
Martin has 20 years experience of managing complex change and helping people "see the wood through the trees". He describes himself first and foremost as a computer "user" - IT systems being tools needed to get a job done rather than being ends in themselves.
Projects completed include: FATCA analysis for numerous clients; specification and development of new deposit-based product offerings; credit control system analysis and development; implementation of a business risk assessment system; business process re-engineering for an investment bank; specification and evaluation of an “in-house bank” for corporate treasury clients.
