Yvonne joined MetLife in 2009, having started her career as a trainee Chartered Accountant in PwC. According to Yvonne, the experience she gained – both in practice and industry – made her the “rounded accountant” she is today. Stints in Kleinworth Benson in London and Eagle Star/Zurich Life and Canada Life in Dublin introduced her to many important aspects of business, but it is the human connections that she credits with much of her success.
“When I went into Canada Life, I went in as a Senior Financial Accountant but progressed to Financial Controller within six months. I was fortunate enough to work predominantly with Brenda Dunne, who at the time was CFO and the company’s Appointed Actuary. Brenda had a great way of working that brought the actuarial and accounting pieces together so I gained a great appreciation for, and understanding of, the actuarial side of the business,” she said.
