It's a cold and cloudy evening in New York when Marie Stewart answers my call.Yet another long and busy day for this senior J.P. Morgan Chase & Co executive, and there's only so much interview time before she has to head off to another engagement.
Then my mobile rings and it's Stewart again, completely unfazed and keen to continue the interview despite the dollars clocking up on her phone bill.It's a great piece of theatre - and one that clearly appeals to the former aspiring drama student.
"When I was 18 and graduating from high school, I seriously thought about becoming an actress," she says in an Australian drawl only slightly softened by her 14 years in the Big Apple.She went as far as auditioning for a place at the National Institute for Dramatic Art (NIDA) in Sydney before deciding it was too uncertain a career.
"My brother-in-law's brother was working at Deloittes at the time, and he suggested I have a look at accounting.So I looked in the papers, saw two ads, went to two interviews and got two offers," she says.
"I decided to go to Ernst & Young because they were going to pay me more.I was 18 years old and they were paying me $4000 a year - that was in 1976 and I thought I was rich!"
So began a 17-year career with Ernst & Young that saw her move from the audit section into a training role.Stewart soon discovered she had a natural talent for explaining the complexities of accounting rules and by 1984 had established herself as E&Y's Sydney training manager.
And it was just chance that out of a range of possible roles in E&Y offices in different countries, Stewart picked New York.
Her boss made a phone call and six months later - in October 1987 - Stewart found herself in the world's financial capital."I got here two weeks before the crash - but it had nothing to do with me," she chuckles.
What started out as a two-year secondment soon became a permanent arrangement, with her six years at E&Y's New York office encompassing management roles in the areas of training, mergers & acquisitions, and on-call consulting.
She says she found New York "gob-smacking" when she first arrived."It's just like you've seen in the movies.In fact you feel you've stepped onto a movie set.To this day, I walk down the streets of New York and I stop and think. 'OK, it's a movie set, so where are the cameras?'"
Stewart says she soon got over feeling intimidated once she realised that commonsense and communication skills would work just as well for her in a New York office as they had in Sydney.In 1993 she left E&Y to work in ING Capital's internal audit division, based in New York.She admits her return to audit after a long lay-off was not her best move, and after a year she moved to Bankers Trust where her role was to provide advice on the accounting ramifications of new financial products, including the boom area of securitised products.
"Since I started at BT I've specialised in this particular area.Securitisation really took off in the mid 1990s, and I happened to have the expertise," she says.
It was that expertise that led to her being appointed by J.P. Morgan Chase in 1996 as head of the investment bank's 10-person accounting policies unit.Four years later and after a dizzying series of promotions, Stewart is now vice-president in Structured Products where she serves as the resident expert on GAAP and bank regulations as they affect structured products worldwide.
So where to from here?"My next move is to become a J.P. Morgan managing director - I certainly hope that's going to happen in 2002," she says.
While the title 'managing director' is not the same in the US as it is here, it's still senior enough to carry a salary the size of a telephone number.Stewart hopes it's not so senior that she'll have to start managing people once more.
"I largely work on my own, with noone reporting to me," she says.
