Regional Director - Leeds, Manchester & Newcastle

CIO Executive Search Recruiter across the North of England

The role of the CIO has seen constant change over the years and as the pace of the digital disruption picks up, businesses are faced with new opportunities and challenges. The CIO or ITD is absolutely key to enabling business to navigate to new or more efficient business models and succeed in the new digital world. This evolution makes recruiting CIOs a fascinating and challenging position of responsibility. In addition to recruiting CIOs, I have regional responsibility for our business across the North of England. I’ve recruited IT Leaders/CIOs for SME’s through to large corporates, focusing predominantly on private and not for profit sectors. Our three-offices based in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle have allowed me opportunity to engage on a personal and local level – bringing CIO thought leadership and insightful networking opportunities to the doorstep of the region’s top IT leadership talent. On a personal level, I’m a husband, father of two girls, retired boxer, real ale connoisseur and a terrible dancer. In my spare time, I am a board member of Byte Night, a division of action for Children. Flagship roles I have recruited include: CIO of outdoors clothing retailer, ITD at a family-related charity and an IT Director at healthcare management company.
