Alicia has been with Carbon since its first year and has played a key role in shaping Carbon’s approach and client footprint. Her focus is on building management teams for a portfolio of financial services clients from start-up organisations to FTSE 50 businesses. She works to find talented leaders for both commercial and functional roles across retail banking, consumer finance, commercial banking and insurance. Being multi-lingual makes Alicia invaluable to Carbon’s international work.

Prior to joining Carbon, Alicia worked for a high profile defence organisation in contract negotiation. She was educated internationally and holds a first class degree in Management Studies from Brunel University.

“This was my first move in many years and I needed a lot of support and certainly got it from Alicia. The process was managed well and the best thing was the level of contact which was very personal.”
