Henry has more than three decades of leadership experience in financial services, and during his distinguished career has worked in investment banking, law, and financial technology. He is an expert in managing change and building and advising teams to solve strategic challenges.


In 2010, Henry was appointed the first head of legal, regulatory, and public affairs at U.K. lender Wonga. In this capacity, he built a team of legal, compliance, and public-affairs professionals; oversaw all company discussions with U.K. and global regulators; and led the effort to ensure Wonga’s authorization by the Financial Conduct Authority in January 2016. 

Henry was previously a senior partner at commercial law firm Herbert Smith, where he developed the contentious-regulatory and life-sciences practices, created and led the business-development function. Additionally, as a member of the firm’s management committee, he was closely involved in the firm’s international expansion.
