Biography

Cheryl Avis, CSPO, CSM - Director - Risk, Ally Financial

As Aristotle said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
I am self-motivated and smart-working with exceptional organizational and strategic skills. Detail-focused without losing sight of the enterprise level goals. Easily consult and coordinate with multiple stakeholders and priorities.

Over 20 years of commercial lending, compliance and regulatory experience.  I have spent the last 5+ years co-located with a “dream” Agile team designing, developing and supporting a proprietary commercial risk rating tool.  This role includes strategic consulting with key stakeholders at all levels of the enterprise; development and delivery of all training and user documentation; primary responsibility for all related communications; prioritization of the backlog; and responsibility for remediating data and risk rating models compliant with banking regulations, including Basel II.
