Previously Ron held senior credit management positions with Chevron, RBS Sempra/JP Morgan Europe and Cargill. He also worked as a Senior Advisor at Standard Chartered Bank, and served on the GTC Advisory Board. Ron is a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) and a Certified Credit Executive (CCE).

Our clients will certainly benefit from Ron’s knowledge and experience.”

They are designed to meet the needs of even the largest and most complex companies efficiently and cost effectively.

About Ron Wells

With a broad range of international experience in bank corporate lending, trade finance and physical commodity corporate credit, Ron has successfully fused trade finance tools with traditional counterparty risk management practices to create solutions. This has been made possible by the expansive business knowledge base that he has accumulated, which is constantly updated by reading, research and attending courses. Ron has built a wide network of essential contacts through active membership of various professional associations, such as the International Energy Credit Association (IECA) and the Finance, Credit and International Business Association (FCIB). Ron is the author of ‘Global Credit Management an Executive Summary’ (published by John Wiley & Sons) which was well received by credit risk practitioners and CFOs in Total, LUKoil (LITASCO), Noble Group, and Louis Dreyfus. The book has been published in Chinese and proved popular amongst students and finance executives in the People’s Republic of China and Singapore. Ron has delivered numerous presentations in China, Singapore, Europe and the USA, and written many published articles on credit topics. Believing that worthwhile, seemingly impossible objectives may be obtained, by persistently maintaining a ‘can-do’ attitude, Ron is able to help to turn the credit risk management function of a trading entity into a dynamic force. A force equipped to significantly increase net profits, cash flow and liquidity safely.
