interim cio

Rejuvenating or transforming IT organisations that are not performing (or percieved to perform) optimally is my number one speciality
As interim CIO, I ''take over'' IT for an agreed period of time (normally 6 - 18 months, or 1-3 months if only an initial assessment is needed)
Based on our mutual analysis and recommended changes, and your decisions on strategy and investments, my team and I initiate and lead the transition - potentially providing support in recruiting an incoming CIO to take over after a transition period

Having been 'around the block a couple of times', I have held a number of CIO and similar positions across the EMEA and the US 
I am regarded sector agnostic, having worked in Retail, Pharma, Health Care, Banking, FS, Professional Services, for both PE-backed, fasted paced SME's as well as FTSE100's

rescuing failed business change programmes

I also specialise in coming in ''half-way'' in turn-around situations and have a unique experience in leading major business- and IT transformations in complex and international  environments
During the last 20 years I have been fortunate to help five clients turn around major ERP and similar business change programmes - the largest being a 42-month, £80Mill global finance transformation (see ABOUT / CASE STUDIES and listen to the podcast below)
My unique success rate delivering major change on time, quality and budget exceeds 90%
I embrace challenges, I gain trust and I take control, and, together with my team, WE SUCCEED WHERE OTHERS HAVE PROBLEMS
