Cory leads all client engagement across Australia Pacific-based clients, with a focus on those in the extractives and resources sector. Prior to joining the Sydney team, Cory headed up the client services team in Control Risks’ London headquarters, where she also led the oil and gas sector for Europe and Africa.  


Some projects Cory has led for her clients include:
  • Conducted a risk assessment for the Myanmar country entry of a major oil and gas firm, focusing on all elements of risk including potential corruption choke points, the political landscape and its potential impact on operation and security requirements both on- and offshore. 
  • Completed a fraud system review of global fraud requirements for an international extractives company whose fraud prevention and detection systems had grown organically with the business, creating gaps between country operations. 
  • Designed security for a remote project in North Africa. The site was deemed at risk for terrorist attack and banditry, but all security was provided by local security forces. The client required an internal security envelope as well as well as security policies and procedures that gave them control over their situation. 


Prior to joining Control Risks, Cory worked in humanitarian operations in conflict and post-conflict environments throughout Africa and the Middle East including Liberia, Darfur, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Kenya, Iraq and Haiti. 

Cory has an MSc in humanitarian and development theory from Oxford Brookes University and a BA in foreign affairs and South Asian studies from the University of Virginia.

What Xi Jinping means for your business

Xi Jinping has arguably changed China more than any leader since the reform era began in the late 1970s. Much of what is happening in China today would have happened regardless of the leader due to its size and growing wealth, but Xi has provided direction and a compelling vision for the future.
