He has over fifteen years’ experience working in an advisory capacity across the financial services industry. He joined Grant Thornton in 2006 and worked with the Business Risk Services practice before relocating to New York in 2014 to join Grant Thornton US.

In his time in New York Frankie led a number of large scale, regulator (FRB/OCC/CFPB/NYDFS) driven remediation projects for some of the world’s largest banks. These projects all centred on key regulatory issues such as governance, regulatory compliance (BSA/AML, Financial Crime and Consumer Protection) and operational, enterprise and third party risk management (outsourcing).
Since his return to Dublin in 2017, Frankie has lead a number of scale remediation projects for a number of regulated firms on the back of CBI RMPs centered on governance, risk management and compliance effectiveness and maturity. He has also completed a number of significant CBI mandated independent thematic reviews focussed on AML framework effectiveness, risk governance effectiveness and maturity and risk culture.
