Hi, Oli. So, tell us, what has been your career leading up to SmartCo?

I have 22 years of experience working in Project and Programme Delivery across a number of sectors. My career began in the NHS and after 7 great years, I moved into the private sector. I have led project delivery teams on multiple million-pound projects and programmes, transforming businesses and technology providers. In recent years, I have specialised in delivering enterprise-wide technology solutions including ERP, HCM and CMMS solutions to large, established businesses.

What is your new role and what are the key responsibilities?

I have been appointed as Delivery Director. My role is to support the growth and maturity of our delivery function, ensuring we have frameworks and processes in place to continue to deliver world class technology solutions for our clients. In addition, I will be leading the operations side of the business, continuing to improve on the great work that has been done to date.

What excites you most about joining SmartCo?

SmartCo is such a rapidly growing, innovative and exciting business and I’m relishing this new chapter in my career where I can bring all of my delivery experience and make a difference. The role is a fairly new role so I will be working with a broad remit and am looking forward to covering everything from our business processes to how we interact with our clients and partners.

What’s unique about the company?

SmartCo is a boutique consultancy that really puts people at the heart of all we do. The culture of the business is extraordinary. I have genuinely never worked with such open minded and talented people in one company! I am so excited to be here and help grow the business.

What are your interests and hobbies?

I love my food and cooking is a great habit that I don’t want to break. My other passion is taking my son to Arsenal games and watching him train on cold mornings in Regents Park. I am still trying to be enthused about taking my 8-year-old daughter to Ballet on Saturdays! My family are big into volunteering and we actively support our local foodbank in East Finchley. I co-run a knife crime prevention business and am a committee member of a conservation trust which keeps me fit as well as muddy every week!
