Key successes include scaling Keycorp into a global leader in payments and security technologies, and leading the reinvigoration of MULTOS as a leading global solution for smartcards and cryptographic tokens with the establishment of StepNexus. Over the last decade, I led the growth of Ecoult to where it attained recognition as an energy storage leader and Global Cleantech 100 company supported by government and industry partnerships. Recently, I have led the orderly shutdown of the company following withdrawal of investment, precipitated by superior progression on performance, consistency, and cost reduction by alternate battery chemistries and what it would take to establish baseline competitiveness.
Across successes and challenges, I’ve developed the ability to step back and see how it all fits together, and to see the need for change and assess risk/reward with objectivity. As a result, today, I enjoy acting as a mentor, advisor and non-executive director, opening doors to new partnerships and markets, guiding on key strategic exercises and ensuring appropriate organisational governance at all stages of maturity.
