Lorraine Lyons, Business Development
Describe your job in three words:
Motivating, Collaborative, Engaging.
What is the most exciting thing you are working on?
The most exciting part about my job is working with new customers. I am currently working with several large clients who will use AQMetrics platform to aid their customers to scale using our risk and regulatory reporting solutions.
How has your background helped with your role in AQMetrics?
My BA in English and Sociology and Masters in IT from Maynooth University and more recently my H. Dip Financial Technology from Dublin Business School, all contributes to my core values of lifelong learning and working in partnership. The opportunity to undertake group work with peers is invaluable learning.
Best thing about working in AQMetrics?
Everyone shares the same vision and is dedicated to the mission.
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?
Janet Guthrie – retired professional race car driver. As she once said, racing is a matter of spirit not strength.
Last book you read?
I’ve just finished my H. Dip in DBS, so the last year was spent reading academic journals. However, the last book I read for fun was ‘I am Pilgrim’ by Terry Hayes – I love a good thriller.
Website you visit the most?
Travel websites – all of them! I spend a lot of time planning my next trip.
Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I am a qualified women’s artistic gymnastics (WAG) coach and national judge. I got to spend time training with an Irish squad in Russia and coached in Ireland and Australia. As I wanted to stay involved in gymnastics, I volunteer with Special Olympics Ireland to help organising their regional and national competitions.
