Management

A TASK OR A TEAM; I CAN MANAGE IT

My management style is an open and inclusive one that ensures everyone's voice is heard. Throughout my career I have demonstrated my ability to not only manage, but lead. I manage teams to success by engenedering a service culture. I've mentored the teams I've led, helping develop the service, interpersonal, and technical skills of those for whom I had responsibility.

The scope of my management experiences range from being appointed International IT Manager for a large, truly-global, retailer valued at $4.3bn, to running a successful computer retail superstore with a multimillion-pound turnover.


Most recently I headed the Group IT for Monarch, a UK based Airline Group comprising an airline, engineering function, and training academy

My career history demonstrates that I am an experienced and capable leader who focusses on service and has a comprehensive technical acumen.


I've always led, and been a part of, strong teams that have successfully achieved our business goals together.


In my most recent management role Despite the challenges of high-pressure, limited time, limited funds, and consistent and impactful changes being undertaked, I worked to the ITIL framework and maintained good service governance meeting and exceeding all key deliverables.

EXPERIENCES

A short summary of my most recent management experiences

Elster Metering - 2005 - 2008

A key member of the global strategy board and responsible for UK IT directly, I had a significant influence on the delivery of IT services for the business world-wide.

This included decommissioning the old site, implementing an IP telephony solution, a WAN migration, and all end-user services. Downtime for the business was zero.

Heading-up a small UK based team, and liaising with counterparts in the US, I was responsible for the management,

support and facilitation of IT Services to numerous international offices in EMEA, NZ and China. I expanded

support capability from the UK whilst leveraging relationships with US led IT departments.

Group IT Manager

Monarch Aircraft Engineering - 2017 - 2018

I successfully transition-managed all IT services from Monarch Group, which collapsed in October 2017, to the ongoing concern MAEL. All within 6 months, on time and within budget.


Reporting directly to the CEO as part of the executive team, I lead a team of 17 direct reports. I also worked closely with the administrators, KPMG, and engaged an MSP (managed services provider) to facilitate outsourcing of support.


I was fully responsible for MAEL IT throughout a number of UK and European Airports, my accountabilities included teams facilitating Service Desk, Applications Support/Development, Project Management, and Business Analyst functions.
