What is my ideal next role?

My ideal role would have the following components:
1. Scope to utilise my international legal and compliance experience gained in APAC, UK, North America, and offshore.
2. Fast paced and challenging.
3. Ability to work with a smart and innovative team.
3. People leadership would be ideal also - perhaps a great team to either coach for best performance or a team to raise to a higher level.

My Experience Highlights

1.Led successful application for an MSB license with FinCEN for a precious metals P2P network, resulting in U.S. launch, through ensuring compliance with all U.S. regulatory requirements (federal and state-level), implementing a robust regulatory compliance program, and hiring qualified team members.
2. Transforming a fragmented high turnover team with low productivity into a high-performance team, increasing staff retention resulting in lowered risk to the business, and team productivity and accuracy significantly, through 1:1 coaching and mentoring, and utilising team feedback to inform simplification of processes and bottlenecks.
3. Wrote and implemented a full compliance framework (including policies and procedures), monitoring program, and complete analysis of business risk for a funds and investment business, decreasing their exposure to financial crime and regulatory risk significantly, and creating a simple and effective monitoring program.


I'm currently seeking remote work; however, I am fairly centrally based between the coasts in South Dakota, so can easily travel. I have authorisation to work in the US but can also work remotely for a UK business if a time zone difference was acceptable.
