Real Life – Julianne McKnight

Join us as Her Leadership Journey founder Emma Rhoades interviews Julianne McKnight – Head of Risk, Compliance and HR at AliGroup.

Julianne will share her story of how she got from role to role without having a piece of paper or formal qualification / certification and how imposter syndrome  showed itself many times on her journey.

Julianne has held the position of Head of Compliance & Risk for ALI Group, an insurance distribution business, since 2012.  A few years ago, the People function was added to her remit.

Julianne has more than 35 years experience in the finance industry, spanning credit assessment, sales, broker aggregation, relationship management and compliance/risk functions.  She is also a certified life coach.

During her career to date, Julianne has undertaken a span of roles including mobile lender, lending manager, conveyancer, credit assessor, business development (both credit and financial services), and state, national and executive management positions.  In the latter part of her career she found herself in senior risk and compliance positions, and more recently has added human resources responsibilities. 

Julianne is a strong believer in living in accordance with your values and fitting your own mask first.  She is looking forward to knowing what she wants to do when she grows up!

Julianne and her partner live in Brisbane, have 3 sons, a dog and a cat. 

This is one real life journey you are not going to want to miss!
