Client Partner Executive Search

As a Client Partner in Alternatives Elect, I focus on search and market mapping assignments within the evolving and converging areas of data, analytics, strategy, innovation and transformation. In an environment of continuous change, I believe the winners will emerge from companies whose visionary leaders see transformation as an opportunity rather than a headache. Regardless of the mandate, I therefore approach each search with a wide lens and open mind.

Recent assignments from across various industries include: Ireland General Manager, Head of Strategy, Head of Data Insights, Head of Business Performance, Head of Transformation, Marketing Director.


I joined Alternatives Elect in 2015 after a 15 year executive search career in London, where I completed C-suite mandates within governance and risk management across the financial services sector. With Brexit on the horizon, I retain a keen interest in the financial services sector and its potential in Ireland. Risk is also a particular passion and I have been regularly published and interviewed by UK media on risk recruitment and have presented at the Geneva Risk Minds conference.

I am a graduate of the London School of Economics with a BSc in Government.
