IT consultant with over 30 year's experience leading IT functions and developing great teams in the public and private sector, with recent in-depth experience of UK Higher Education.
A professional leader capable of creating, communicating and delivering strategy, able to deal with operational challenges and resolve complex problems.
I have developed and managed a transformation of corporate IT services as part of a major modernisation and investment programme, and led the introduction of project management frameworks within a large and complex organisation, to manage increased levels of risk.
As a University IT Director, I have implemented successful re-organisation and merger of IT teams, introduced account management, attracted significant levels of new investment in technology and delivered innovative and successful student, academic and administrative services.
I am passionate about continually improving customer experience and I am very proud to have been in the team which significantly increased student satisfaction as measured by the annual National Student Survey (NSS) from national average (84%) to upper quartile (90%) and to have consistently measured monthly customer satisfaction at 99% (satisfied or very satisfied).
I am effective at networking and engaged in a number of external initiatives at national level, for example with the professional body for IT professionals in education (UCISA).
I can demonstrate key skills in the delivery of change management programmes; multi-million pound operational and capital investment budgets; building highly effective organisational relationships; delivery of high quality services; and working with diverse groups demonstrating personal flexibility and resilience.
Key qualifications include a Masters in Business Administration (University of Bradford MBA), and an Engineering degree (University of Bristol BSc Hons). I am a certified PRINCE practitioner and ITIL qualified.
