Sheryl worked with me at BNZ as a Business Analyst/Compliance Consultant on Know Your Customer (KYC) and a number of other compliance projects. Sheryl was instrumental in the success of the project as her gap analysis and process recommendations ensured that BNZ received a “Nil” audit with Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ). Sheryl provides her own unique approach and I really appreciated her guidance and honest/open approach.
Rob NichollsSenior Project Manager
Sheryl and I were part of the management team for Anti-Money Laundering (AML) operations across the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) Group with execution teams in the US, Singapore, UK, Poland, Netherlands and India all working according to the same, global process. Sheryl led the implementation of the global approach to quality management and I was the global head of process management. In short, my team set the global procedures in place, and her team ensured the procedures were followed – or needed improving. I came to respect her as a very professional, well-grounded and driven sparring partner, and fun person to work with.

In my role, I was responsible for setting up a global support desk for a global project within a global bank for a global Know Your Customer (KYC) project. I hired Sheryl Phillips.

I could not have done it without her.
