Meet The Team

With an academic background in Economics and over 22 years of experience in risk, capital and control, I have executed numerous business transformations, independent audits and risk reviews, and implementation projects of risk technology solutions internationally, for both financial institutions and regulatory bodies. Throughout various risk roles in my career, I have supported business heads and chief risk officers in achieving their strategic risk and governance objectives to comply with regulations, optimizing their risk capital to be more competitive, and creatively using risk techniques in business-originating activities. My passion is for the company to generate value through providing relevant and appropriate solutions for clients and excellent customer service, while we embrace our universal values in everything we do, acting with integrity, transparency, respect and care for the people who conform Rhisco, their families, our clients, suppliers, and many other stakeholders in the locations where we operate.

My previous experience integrating and developing system solutions with zero tolerance for error and strict audit requirements (including an electoral system for a government agency), jointly with my long experience in risk technology integration, has helped me in Rhisco with our mission of building the right solution for our clients to address their strategic risks and capital needs.
