About CVG Solutions

Our aim is to make GDPR simpler for businesses

Cristina Vannini-Goodchild

(Managing Director & Founder)

CVG Solutions are a team of independent Data Advisory Specialists passionate about creating a Centre of Excellence for GDPR.  With over 25 years’ experience working for international corporations, we are experts in data processing and risk management.

When new data protection regulations came into force in 2018, founder Cristina Vannini-Goodchild set up CVG Solutions to support businesses at every step of their GDPR journey.

“I realised when GDPR came out that big organisations had the resources to be able to implement the new regulations, but small businesses didn’t have that luxury. This is where CVG Solutions comes in.

“We’re passionate about helping businesses get GDPR right. It strengthens their reputation, builds trust with customers, and helps companies win more contracts because they are GDPR compliant.” – Cristina Vannini-Goodchild


Expertise You Can Trust

Cristina’s previous experience includes senior roles at HP, General Motors, the British Standards Institution (BSi) and Serco as Head of Data Governance.

She is a also a fully certified Data Protection Officer at Master Level, Prince2 and MSP qualified to practitioner level, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, CMI level 5 in Management and Leadership, and a member of the Chartered Management Institute.

In 2021, Cristina set up Start-Talk-Grow, a not-for-profit organisation helping new UK companies find the tools they need to start their business journey.
