Robin Creswell (current parent), Managing Principal of Payden & Rygel kindly agreed to host a City Careers Evening which was open to all young OS and SOGs, who were either considering a career in the City or were already working there, to meet alumni and parents from a wide range of sectors.

The evening started with our extremely strong and varied panel introducing themselves and explaining what they do and how they got where they are now.  The young OS and SOGs were then able to network over drinks and canapes with the panellists they were most interested in and the evening finished with a Q & A session.

Our thanks to Robin and our panellists:

Louise Hall (E 84) Director, Investec Wealth & Investment

Matthew Hardcastle (f 06) Origination Executive, Inflexion Private Equity

Alex Le May (b 07) Senior Director, FTI Consulting

Alanna Loder-Symonds (E 97) Shipping Operations, ICBC Standard Bank Plc

Freddie Mead (a 03) Reinsurance Broker, TigerRisk Partners

George Murray (c 06) Private Banker, Vice President, Citi Bank

Charlie Quick (c 03) Bulk Commodity Broker, TP ICAP

“I thoroughly enjoyed my evening and learnt so much from the engaging panel members.”

“I learnt a lot more generally tonight, and now feel a lot more focused and self-confident in the next few months of setting myself on the path to a career in the city.”
