John joined Cyan from the Jersey Financial Services Commission in 2023. Whilst at the JFSC, John developed a broad understanding of the local regulatory framework as the Senior Manager of Pooled Supervision where he worked with businesses across a range of financial services sectors. More recently, John also worked in the JFSC’s Enforcement Division where he led investigations into serious breaches of Jersey’s regulatory requirements. This involved careful analysis of information and the development of strategies to capture evidence required for possible regulatory sanctions.
Prior to joining the JFSC, John spent 17 years with the Government of Jersey. Much of this time was with the Customs & Immigration Service where John led teams in complex criminal investigations. Whilst with Customs, John was responsible for several complex technical projects such as implementing investigation management software and developing systems controlling imports and exports. John’s abilities in business analysis, project management and innovative use of technology were then further developed while working at the Justice and Home Affairs Department as the Business Improvement Project Manager. This role involved analysing and understanding issues facing the Department’s services and developing bespoke solutions to improve performance and meet recognised performance standards.
