Professional career history
My full professional career history in on LinkedIn but here is the short version:
I am a high-growth chief technology officer and digital leader who has helped launch and scale both start-ups and new businesses within public listed companies.
My experience has spanned multiple industries, where I have managed extensive budgets c.$1bn+, P&L $900m+, and led teams of 1,000+ people.
My early career was spent building and running technology driven startups, as well as starting out as a professional tennis player.
My recent career has been in executive roles (CTO, CIO, CDO) launching new businesses for large organisations including: Lloyds Banking Group PLC, Morrisons PLC, Booker PLC, UK Government, and the UK Ministry of Justice.
I also have a MBA with distinction from City, University of London’s Cass Business School.
Currently, I am a partner and Managing Director at AlixPartners where I advise some of the world’s largest and most iconic companies on innovation, growth, strategy and technology.
Investor and advisor
I love working with companies that are launching, scaling or transforming – change, transformation and disruption are what get me out of bed in the morning.
I work with a small number of start-ups as an advisor and investor, so if you think I would be a good fit for your business then please reach out for an informal chat.
I spent five years writing a book, The HERO Transformation Playbook, which is a step by step guide for delivering large-scale change and transformation.
As part of this book, I co-developed the HERO Transformation Framework, which gives you the best chance of transformation success.
