Join our expanding technology department
Chief Technology Officer - Leadership Team
Since joining the Euromonitor International Technology team in 2015 I have been dedicated to improving the user experience of our client and internal applications. We are a global team of 200, with a presence in 9 of our 15 offices.
I have chaired several "Hackathons" which - in addition to being great fun - have produced some fabulous ideas that have helped to increase efficiency and communication across our teams. We are currently engaged in several major projects, from moving all our systems into the cloud to developing a number of client solutions fit for the Big Data era. The future is a bright one for Euromonitor Technology and I am excited to be a part of it.
How did you get into technology?
Like so many others, by pure luck! I was part of a team defining and improving logistics processes at Nokia. When the time came to start automating the processes I took the opportunity to move into IT and start driving the changes using technology. I never looked back.
What do you enjoy most about your role?
Working with technology presents new challenges and opportunities every day. The diversity of roles, creative individuals, constant change and technical challenges are a source of stimulation. Leading in such an environment keeps me on my toes and makes it impossible to get bored. It does also help that I love technology and how it has changed our lives in the past couple of decades.
What is a typical day like for you in technology?
Euromonitor International is a global organisation. As a result, I start my day by checking the status of our technology, making sure our customers and staff are able do their work. Technology is all about people, so a lot of my day is spent in meetings, listening to proposals and making decisions, setting direction and progressing projects. Then there are the occasional surprises that end up completely changing my day. So, you never really know what is going to happen!
