Data-powered integrated agency Jaywing has appointed Dean Mitchell as its regulatory risk practice director.
Mitchell was formerly a risk director at GE Capital’s joint ventures and chief risk officer at a GE-owned Dutch Bank.
He brings over 20 years of experience in risk management to the role, having worked at various banks across Canada, the Netherlands and the UK and managed clients in the advent of significant regulatory changes during periods of unexpected events.
Alongside this, Mitchell’s notable career highlights include working with the EU entity responsible for the recovery and resolution of banks to help them form their operational framework, procedures, system requirements and policies.
Mitchell has also worked with a top UK bank on a two-year project, leading the risk team in the divestment of a large portfolio of corporate, SME businesses and retail customers.
He also worked as a partner at Avantage Reply, ensuring the development of the regulatory risk consultancy services, including quality of delivery, subject matter expertise and business development.
On his new role, Mitchell said: “Jaywing has a fantastic base of existing clients, covering the full range of financial services, sectors and sizes. Being able to offer these clients, and potential new clients, a range of new professional services is very exciting.
“The team at Jaywing is very experienced and I look forward to working with them all to grow and expand our offering.”

We can’t wait to see what that expertise will bring to our financial services offering as he steps into his new role.”
