Carl Nightingale joins PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as a partner in Financial Services to support PA’s Digital Trust and Cyber Security expertise in the sector. With a background designing and building secure systems across numerous industry sectors, Carl will help PA’s Financial Services clients navigate the increasing regulatory and legislative pressures concerning Cyber Security.

Carl brings over 25 years’ experience in the field of Information Technology, from implementing global ERP solutions, IT Governance and Risk and Compliance, to supporting statutory audit processes.
