Over the past few months, the financial services focused TORI Global has hired three senior professionals to its leadership team. The consulting firm has appointed Nigel Munden, Kit Jackson and Paul Jennings, as it prepares to grow in 2018.

Founded in 2002, Tori Global was established by a group of three C-level executives, including incumbent CEO Martin Harvey, who had been working in Financial Services. The trio were frustrated by the way management consultancies operated; perceiving the sector are generally lacking knowledge, experience and transparency. TORI was created, in the words of Harvey, “to be a credible alternative to ‘the Big Four’ within Financial Services. To be a transformational consultancy that would do things differently.”

Since then, the firm has spread across the world, catering to the needs of clients in the US and Australia, as well as domestic customers from the company’s City of London headquarters, which it occupied as of 2016. The group have been undergoing a period of expansion for the past two years, and 2017 saw them take on a host of new talent.

Kit Jackson

In late 2017, TORI welcomed Kit Jackson – a global expert and thought leader in strategy mapping – to the consultancy’s team. Jackson has spent more than 25 years working to help leading organisations manage strategic change, while holding leadership positions in both management consulting and industry.

Nigel Munden, Kit Jackson and Paul Jennings

During her career, Jackson has previously fulfilled various senior roles, including being a Managing Director in International Financial Services for Berkeley Research Group. Jackson also worked closely with Robert Kaplan and David Norton – the co-creators of the Balanced Scorecard – where she played an instrumental role in evolving the scorecard from a performance measurement and management tool into a strategy management tool. In her spare time she leads strategy for a leadership initiative for women in science, Homeward Bound,  creating a global collaboration of 1,000 women over 10 years who are equipped to lead, influence and shape the future of our planet, set against the remarkable backdrop of an expedition to Antarctica.

Jackson, who is also an INSEAD graduate, and a coach in personal strategy, is presently putting her experience to work as Head of Strategy Execution and Organisation & Leadership Development at TORI. In her role, she works to guide the firm’s clients in the definition and execution of their corporate and divisional strategies.

Paul Jennings

Also joining in the Autumn, Head of Regulatory Compliance Paul Jennings has worked for the Financial Services Authority, two of the “Big Four” consultancy firms where he specialised in regulatory compliance. Jennings was a Senior Manager at EY, before joining KPMG UK in 2009, as a Senior Consultant. Following a year-long stint with the firm, Jennings joined Société Générale, where he held a number of senior positions. He specialises in regulatory change, governance, conduct risk, financial promotions, AML/financial crime and treating customers fairly.

In his position with TORI, Jennings puts his significant experience – in areas including leading auditing, implementation projects (including European Directives), reviewing audit and control functions – to work with a range of stakeholders including CEOs, Non-Executive Directors, Heads of Risk, Compliance and Audit and a range of regulators.

Nigel Munden

Head of Cyber Security, Nigel Munden, joined TORI at the beginning of the Summer, bringing over 30 years of experience to the role. Having spent time at global IT services giant IBM, Nortel, Juniper and most recently, Intel Security, where he held the position of Vice President Professional Services EMEA, managing 5 regions and a portfolio of Cyber Security – the area of advisory he now specialises in.
