I lead on delivery of strategic technology appointments cross-sector, specialising in CIO, CTO, Digital Director, Innovation Director, Data Director and their reporting lines throughout the UK and Europe. I play a leading role in our CIO Practice, driving collaboration between our 9 UK offices, presenting Harvey Nash's thought leadership at our events and ensuring best practice in Search is followed across the UK. In parallel, I am also Head of Research for the CIO Practice and oversee our world-class Research team who support our Consultants in the delivery of retained assignments globally following Search & Selection methodology.
I have a strong interest in diversity in the workplace and take an active role in organising Diversity Awareness workshops internally, as well as promoting diversity on client longlists. I am particularly interested in readdressing the balance of women in technology leadership positions, which has stalled at just 12% according to our latest CIO Survey.
I have a 1st class modern languages degree from the University of Birmingham and speak French and German.
