Director – Risk & Resilience

Peter Duffy​

Peter brings 30 years of experience in relation to risk, crisis and issues management, assurance, governance and associated practices that are fundamental to sound decision making in a successful and resilient organisation.

As Director of Enterprise Risk Services for Battleground Group Peter delivers outcomes that are reflective of his experience based belief that effective risk management is vital in both protecting and enhancing business impact and value.

Peter has most recently led the Enterprise Risk Function for the CSIRO, Australia’s National Science Agency. In that role he developed and enhanced CSIRO’s Risk Framework to support increased risk maturity and risk aware decision making at all levels of the organisation.

In addition, Peter was responsible for business continuity, crisis and issues management and has taken a leading role in both the development of continuity and crisis frameworks and the application of those frameworks through significant crisis events.

Peter is regularly invited to present at risk conferences on the challenge of effectively factoring risk into organisational decision making to both protect and enhance business value.

Director – Operational Risk

Joe McDavitt

Joe believes that, done right, operational risk management is a powerful contributor to helping achieve organisational objectives. His approach to enabling and driving this is built on gathering an understanding of the operating environment, objectives and constraints facing an organisation and using his experience to develop and deliver plans that are both challenging and sustainable.

As Director, Operational Risk, Joe helps our clients connect their resilience efforts with broader operational risk management goals.  With more than 20 years experience, Joe has held senior consultancy and management roles across retail banking, financial services, energy and utilities. 

Joe has led significant projects in risk transformation, GRC system implementation, AML/CTF capability uplift and controls transformation.  His experience has given him clear insight in to what works, and what doesn’t, when you seek to uplift risk management capabilities and behaviours.

Joe’s focus is working with our APRA regulated clients, with a specific focus on CPS 230.
