How Jonathan is building a better working world

Jonathan is working toward building a better working world by helping major banks understand and implement complex accounting and regulatory requirements, such as Basel IV and IFRS 9. He’s also guiding these institutions to transform themselves to boost returns and redirect people to more value-adding and forward-looking activities. Jonathan is also passionate about the use of public cloud computing to overhaul the finance function. His current focus is on making it a process and outcome-led activity rather than a pure tech play.
