We are thrilled to announce Tom Frederick has joined SmartCo as Delivery Director. Wishing you a warm welcome from the entire SmartCo team.

We sat down with Tom to ask him a few questions about his career path, his new role at SmartCo, what attracted him to SmartCo and what he’s most excited about in joining the SmartCo team.

Hi Tom. What has been your career leading up to SmartCo?

I have spent the last 19 years helping organisations design and deliver tech-based change. The majority of that has been spent in health (public and private) and social care, with a period in the middle where I spent 7 years in financial services. I have a deep passion to improve the lives of clinicians, patients and care givers through the best use of technology.

What is your new role and what will you be focusing on?

As normal I will wear a few hats. My primary responsibility is as Delivery Director, working in partnership with our healthcare clients to deliver great work on their digital transformation programmes. However, as we are small and beautifully formed, I will be working across our client portfolio, ensuring our deliveries are all going to plan, and supporting the growth of our awesome talent, helping SmartCo to be a great place to grow your career.

What most excites you about being part of the team?

I’m in a stage in my career where I’m focused on delivering, not just the planning, not just talking about it, but really making it happen. Our clients in health feel the same. A wise person once told me, there is no shortage of “what” in the NHS, but there is a shortage of “how”. I’m focused on the “how” and SmartCo is great at the “how”, which is inspiring to be around. It’s quite contagious, you can really feel the culture and it’s very motivating.

What attracted you to SmartCo?

We have recently been doing some work internally to help us better understand who we are and what we do. In that work we summarised the reasons why clients choose to work with us based on their feedback. The three reasons are that we are likable, credible and flexible. These three attributes sum up very well what attracted me to SmartCo.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself?

In a past life, I played basketball for England and professionally in Europe. It feels like a very past life at this age now 😊. Nowadays I get my basketball buzz as an assistant coach for a great semi-professional team (Hemel Storm). Last year was an amazing year as we went undefeated.
