I have in depth experience across the IT value chain and have led a number of core IT and Payment portfolios, projects and teams across Africa, the UK and Europe. I have a keen drive and passion for IT and business synergy and develop Enterprise Solutions in line with business and customer requirements. I have spearheaded key transformation programmes centered around best practices, innovation and the optimization of Enterprise Solutions. One of these stretched across 10 Banks in 9 countries.
Currently I am Chief Enterprise Architect : Payments for Danske Bank and part of the team made up from members of all the major banks across the Nordic countries who are venturing to establish the first integrated region for domestic and cross- border payments in multiple currencies. I also represent Danske Bank as Technical Representative on similar initiatives for OpenBanking and New Payment Architecture (NPA) for the UK market.
