Sectors: Rising Stars, Policy

Kevin Bounds is a chartered accountant and MBA who has worked in financial services throughout his career. After qualifying with Coopers and Lybrand and completing his MBA at University of Pittsburgh, he joined J P Morgan and spent nine years there in a variety of roles including internal audit, management information and helped establish the international equities business. From there he joined County NatWest, initially as Group Management Accountant but quickly became group financial controller. He then became part of the start up team for NatWest Life where he established the finance function and became finance director.

Subsequent career moves took Kevin to Nationwide where he was finance director (and acting CEO) for their life and unit trust business before joining KPMG to head up World Class Finance for retail financial services.

Kevin then set up his own consultancy building on his reputation for transforming finance functions and as a balanced scorecard expert. During this team Kevin had interim roles as Finance Director for a number of financial services firms.

He served on the executive committee of the Faculty of Finance and Management for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and co-authored their good practice guideline on balanced scorecard. In October 2011 he published a Special Report for the Institute on balanced scorecard.

Kevin is still active as a consultant and hopes his financial management expertise, knowledge of financial services and commitment to ILC will enable him to carry out the role of treasurer effectively and to the benefit of the organisation whilst also contributing as trustee in other areas.
