Gillian Roche Saunders

Gillian founded Adempi Associates in 2019 with her business partner Dena Chadderton. Adempi is a regulatory consultancy that supports FCA regulated firms and is seen as the go-to adviser for venture capital firms.  It provides practical support, technical advice, eLearning and training. Adempi also attracts consultants who want to do high quality, satisfying work with more flexibility and independence than you get in traditional consultancies.

Gillian’s role with venture capital goes wider than her consultancy work. She is a board member of the EIS Association and sits on their governance and regulatory committees. She is also on the VCT and EIS committee of the BVCA and has supported a range of founders, entrepreneurs and business through her mentoring, coaching and NED work. 

Gillian has worked in financial services since 2010, and prior to that worked within a legal regulator.  She founded the Venture Finance division at regulatory consultancy Bovill before going on to found and run the predecessor to Adempi, BWB Compliance.
