SpecialityExecutive Director
OrganizationFinancial Transparency Coalition

I’ve worked for two decades to bring about change in how financial systems work for the benefit of people, and the planet. I was a founding member of the Tax Justice Network, for whom I worked for five years during my doctoral studies and finally starting to work for larger organisations such as Oxfam and at Christian Aid to take the issues of tax justice and financial transparency to wider conversations about inequality and economic justice issues. Since April 2021 I am the Executive Director at the Financial Transparency Coalition, where I both lead the Coalition, a well as engage in flagship projects to demonstrate the impact of financial transparency and tax justice – most recently on in the People’s Recovery Tracker in tracking funds targeted at social protection vs. funds for corporates, in a context of inadequate funds to help people in this crisis. Finance and tax systems need to serve the people.
