After a graduate degree in Economics, Buck worked for fifteen years in fintech, wearing multiple hats on the journey from a developer to the Chief Operating Officer of a large fintech provider, based in Chicago IL.
During these years, he witnessed the paradox of rapidly advancing technology and declining return on technology investment. He grew passionate about this phenomenon and researched organizations, both large and small, in Europe, US, Dubai and India and realized that technology governance was either minimal or non-existent even as organizations spent an increasing percentage of their revenue on information technology.
The gap between technology and its governance was not closing but widening in most organizations as technology raced and governance lagged. He set up his own consulting practice in 2007 dedicated to technology governance, risk management and regulatory compliance.
He advises large financial, media and technology organizations in the US, UK, France and India on technology strategy, governance, risk management and regulatory compliance.
He specializes in governance and risk advisory and training with the Board and C level executives. MetaMagic leverages his insights into governance to build sustainability into its product and client engagement models.
