As Chief Risk Officer, Peter is responsible for the risk and compliance functions: managing risks which might impact business objectives and ensuring Starling meets its regulatory requirements. Peter has been a banker for most of his life, as was his father and many family members – it must be in the blood.
He started at Citibank in Ireland and worked on assignments in markets including the Middle East, UK, Belgium, Turkey, Russia and Poland, before eventually moving back to Ireland where he was Chief Risk Officer of Allied Irish Banks in the aftermath of the banking crisis there.
With so much experience of traditional banking, Peter was intrigued by Starling’s strategy to be a next generation fintech bank and provide customers with an insightful and modern way to manage their money.
If Peter wasn’t working at Starling, he would probably be taking some time out with his wife and daughters.
