CURRICULUM VITAE Ridwaan Olivier Nationality South African Languages English, Afrikaans, Arabic, French(conversational). Highest Academic Qualifications • Bachelor of Commerce (Financial Risk Mgmnt/Information Technology) UNISA (2003) • Diploma in Datametrics (University of South Africa) (2001) • Diploma in Systems Analysis and Design (FTI, Cape Town 1998) • Diploma in COBOL Programming (BCH, Cape Town 1991) • Banker’s Academy – Subject Matter Expert (October 2010) • Bachelor of Arts Degree (Language and Culture) – Arabic (currently studying) • PMP – Project Management Professional (PMI Project Management Institute Certified) Latest Project Achievements I perform consulting work as a Senior Risk Advisor / Project Manager for the Credit Risk I.T. Business component for Investec Bank in Johannesburg South Africa. I have been in this project management role since July 2005 and have worked on numerous projects in the bank. I report to the programme manager on a weekly basis and have regular update meetings with my teams and the various steering committees on which I sit and to whom I report into. I have worked with the Waterfall as well as the Agile methodology of systems delivery, and am also very familiar with the SDLC (Systems Development Life Cycle). For my last two projects I have been using the Agile methodology and this has allowed us to deliver projects speedily and with accuracy. My responsibilities as project manager varies per project, however they cover the following areas: • Scope Management, project initiation, project execution • Cost, Time, Quality and Resource Management for the project resources and deliverables • Communication management, Risk management as well as implementation Management Latest Project -Private Bank UK Credit Risk Application I completed a full scale enhancement of an existing Credit Risk High Value Application (focussing on the high value Property Applications for Investment and Development Deals). The business users are London based and the development took place in South Africa. I managed the project from end to end, including the projects initiation, planning, execution, monitoring as well as project completion. The systems design, database design, system development and unit testing were done in SA. The integration testing, user acceptance testing and final user signoff was all done in London. The final system implementation was done in South Africa with checking of the implementation in London, Belfast, Pune (India) and Johannesburg. Implementation took place over a weekend. This project was completed in 3 months and done within budget, scope, time and with the requisite quality. We had to work against very tight deadlines from the business and I.T communities, and this was done with a committed project manager and a motivated team. Counterparty Risk Project Another project I played a role in was the Counterparty Master Data project – this project aimed to align the counterparties across the bank in order to satisfy regulatory needs like AML (anti money laundering) as well as in house data cleanup strategies like the KYC (Know Your Client) initiatives. This project focussed primarily on the Counterparty, his supporting data, his structures as well as related direct and indirect linkages (and exposures) to other Counterparties within the bank and outside of the bank. This information is vital due to the interconnectedness of counterparties and how they can add to the overall risk to the bank – which can be quantified in the Large Exposure Reports as required by the Regulatory Authorities. This information can also feed into exposure evaluation and ICAAP processes as well as the Credit Evaluation and Granting processes, where it can be used to evaluate the risk introduced by counterparties to a contract. This project took 10 months to complete and added value in the bank’s understanding of the counterparty risk associated to deals. Credit System rewrite project I project managed the full scale implementation of a new Credit Risk Management Solution that facilitates the decision making process to approve lending deals across the bank in the various geographies (South Africa and Europe). This project was completed in 15 months and done within budget, scope, time and the requisite quality. This project initiated with the aim to save the company money, thus all the decisions were reviewed with a strong cost focus. I needed to make decisions that would save the company money in the long term, yet not compromise service delivery in the short term. I managed the project from initiation, weekly feedback meetings, monthly steercomm meeting as well as general feedback to the stakeholders. The team was primarily in SA however there were parts of the development which was done offshore, thus needing management of the offshore team in Pune India. Large projects and implementations Since 2005 I worked on the BASEL II project for Investec Bank and was involved in the delivery of rating models for the programme. I worked with Corporate, Bank, IPRE as well as investment and commercial model developments. These models were built with consultants from Deloitte’s, Oliver-Wyman and Moody’s. We worked together to build, verify and validate the correctness of the various models. I worked with in-house built, Excel as well as off the shelf model software. Market and Balance Sheet Risk I have worked on various projects on Market risk business and ALM risk business. I gained experience in these areas mainly through system implementations as well as working with the different products, their calculations and stress methodologies. Whilst working on these projects also looked at how the risk areas will be able to leverage off each other’s strengths – especially with reference to how the risk types are converging, especially the Credit and Market risk areas.
