Non-Executive Director and Strategic Advisor
Financial and Governance Expert
Scott studied at King Edward VII School, Sheffield, before graduating from Brasenose College, Oxford, with a PPE and a postgraduate degree in statistics.
Scott’s career has seen him working across the United Kingdom including Her Majesty’s Treasury, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (in Paris), The Royal Bank of Scotland (and subsidiary Williams & Glyn’s), Girobank, Bradford & Bingley, LINK Interchange Network, and Monitise Group.
Scott’s time with Monitise (between 2005 and 2014) saw him develop the company’s global corporate responsibility programme, as well as developing Monitise’s financial services regulatory compliance program and business continuity framework.
Scott also spent time with Monitise in East Africa developing mobile banking and payment solutions across the region, having been awarded an Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (‘AECF’) grant – further delivering on his passion for global financial inclusion.
Scott left Monitise at the end of 2014 to pursue a range of independent passions, focusing on corporate, social, and environmental responsibility, governance, and financial and social inclusion.
In addition to joining ALCO’s Board, Scott is involved with Eris (an ethical and transparent forex company)) and the Open University as a Technical Reader in its financial technology courses.
Scott’s role as a Non-Executive Director on the ALCO Board will see a bolstering of corporate governance and oversight of ALCO’s global operations, as well as an increased focus on the financial services sector.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with ALCO Consulting on two smartcard projects. Alan Leibert and Chris Shoukry were invaluable members of both teams, particularly during the procurement, proposal evaluation, and system planning phases. I would not hesitate to recommend them to any transit organisation.
