I joined the Azimo team in 2014 and bring a wealth of experience from across the financial sector. I am also a passionate advocate of diversity within the FinTech industry and volunteer as a coach for the Cartier Women’s Initiative Awards. Having experienced life as one of few female traders at various trading firms, I know all about the importance of gender equality in the modern workplace.
As Head of Business Development, I am instrumental in building up Azimo’s network of partners across more than 190 countries and scaling the business into new markets. It’s a constantly evolving role as the company is growing so fast – day-to-day tasks can involve anything from banking relationships and strategic partnerships to fundraising and international expansion.
Prior to Azimo, I have clocked up her fair share of air miles during her global career. I started out as a derivatives trader in Chicago, built my own options trading business in Germany, worked in international banking in London and Frankfurt, and joined a start-up advisory in Africa. Along the way, I have worked for the likes of ECB, Deutsche Börse and PayPal.
I was recognised as one of Innovate Finance’s Women in FinTech 2015 and won Best Pitch at a UKTI FinTech event in Singapore. I hold a BA from Bryn Mawr College and an MBA from INSEAD.
