KPMG Isle of Man has announced the appointment of a new Risk Consultant to its Advisory team.
Lawrence Hanlin joins KPMG after a 16 year career with a leading local bank, where his role focused on regulatory and operational risk, managing special projects, looking at banking operations and compliance risk assessment in a number of offices globally. A member of the International Compliance Association and the holder of an associate certificate in supervision and management, and leadership and management, Lawrence’s new role at KPMG will entail the delivery of advice and training to clients and staff on specialised subjects such as AML, fraud prevention, and regulatory compliance, in both the Isle of Man and Gibraltar. He will also manage a team of Forensic Analysts assisting companies across the offshore regions with client risk assessment and take-on, through the provision of public source search and integrity due diligence services.
Lawrence’s new role builds upon many elements of his career to date, and complements a proven track record in presenting complex subjects to customers and colleagues. Indeed, in 2010 Lawrence was a finalist at the National Customer Services Awards in London for his work in educating customers on the intricacies of fraud prevention in the modern day.
In his private life, Lawrence is a keen Rugby fan and this year took to cycling with conviction having completed a 77-mile tour of the Isle of Man for charity. In his younger years, he was a keen athlete, and was also a Scottish sprint champion.
Commenting on his appointment, Lawrence said: “Moving to a new company after 16 years does, of course, present new challenges; however I have a sound background to build upon and am confident that I will relish the experience. KPMG is a globally recognised name and joining them provides me with a significant opportunity to advance my career and progress as a key specialist within the largest and most diverse advisory team working in the Isle of Man and Gibraltar.”
Micky Swindale, head of advisory at KPMG Isle of Man, also commented: “Lawrence is a fantastic addition to the team and brings with him invaluable experience in AML, as well as expertise in fraud prevention and compliance measures, at a crucial stage for our jurisdiction. On behalf of everyone here at KPMG Isle of Man, I would like to congratulate and welcome Lawrence to the team and wish him every success for the future.”
