“Change is the law of life and those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future” – John F. Kennedy 


I believe that change, no matter how difficult or complex it may seem at the beginning, always opens new doors and creates opportunities for a better future.

Within ACE, I bring in many years of experience in the financial service industry, along with expertise and affinity with the implementation of continually changing regulations and legislation.

I am a connector. This is in my nature. I believe that interaction and coordination within a team yields the best results.

When, after an intensive period of preparation and development, everything falls into place and the teamwork pays off in good results and clear deadlines, I feel energised.

Then, I go home, where I like to give my attention and time to my family including my two teenage sons and my friends. This is my ‘favourite waste of time”. To keep in shape I run, participate in a boot camp and play tennis.
