Head of Banks and Digital Channels


I was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad and spent the early years of my life there before moving to UK.

I was educated at an all-boys school in Kent and went to Leeds University, where I studied Economics and Philosophy.

I am currently Head of Banks and Digital Channels in the UK at BlackRock where I am responsible for BlackRock's relationships with Private, Retail and Neo Banks, as well as Digital Channels in the UK.

My previous roles at BlackRock included acting as Head of the iShares business in the UK, Digital Wealth for Northern Europe, Chief of Staff for the iShares business in EMEA, and overseeing and coordinating iShares' relationships with key financial institutional clients across EMEA, including bank and insurance groups.

Prior to joining BlackRock in April 2012, I worked at Goldman Sachs for 6 years. During that time I worked within Private Wealth Management (PWM), where I assisted in building out Goldman Sachs' footprint in the emerging markets, and Goldman Sachs Asset Management, where I was in UK Discretionary Sales.
