I am an IT leader with an interest in bringing people and technology solutions closer together to deliver business value. For over 10 years, I have been helping solve business problems using technology in a pragmatic and cost-effective way.

My approach is underpinned by 3 principles:

– IT Teams should be people and service focused first and technology second
– Technology should be simple to use and simple to run for the long-term
– Governance should complement and support delivery, not consume it

My background is primarily in professional services including legal, property and BPO/IT Managed Services across the Financial Services, National and Local Government, Software Development, Education and Healthcare sectors. I am comfortable covering the end-to-end IT landscape including strategy, innovation, people, operations management and programme delivery.

Significant experience and comfortable operating within regulated environments including SRA, PRA, FCA, Pensions and NHS.

Currently Director of Innovation and Technology for Blake Morgan, a full-service top 60 UK legal firm covering all aspects of technology within the firm including developing and delivering the firm’s IT Strategy and Roadmap to better support our people and clients.

When I am not on the job, I love spending time with my wife and daughter and our cat and travelling to China to visit family and see new places.
