How will the new role differ?

It will be a lot more hands-on and expanded than my role at Jack Morton. First Protocol hired me to take a fresh look at its markets and I'm looking forward to working with clients including Mastercard and UTC.

What attracted you to the role?

First Protocol is a very agile business that can be quick to react to the market and clients needs. It has exciting growth plans and I'm hoping to put my fingerprint on by helping First Protocol mould its strategy.

Which sectors will you work with?

I'll work across various sectors, including financial and public sector, calling on my experience I have already gained in those areas at Jack Morton. I'm also looking forward to working with Deutsche Bank, who I have worked with already, so there's some crossover.
