Commenting on the appointment, Mourant Consulting Managing Director, Mike Jones, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Jon to our leadership team here at Mourant Consulting. Jon brings with him a wealth of impressive risk, compliance and regulatory experience which will enable our clients to navigate the complex and changing regulatory expectations and prevent and detect any regulatory issues before they escalate.”

Jon Stevens added:

“I am thrilled to be joining the team at Mourant Consulting. The firm’s reputation for joined up thinking, problem solving, and client delivery is second to none. I can’t wait to start working with the Mourant Consulting team, our clients, and the wider firm delivering the best results in that joined up way.”
