I have worked in the IT and business processing outsourcing industry for nearly 30 years. I joined Sopra Steria in January 2006 and currently head up the UK Transport and Utilities sector, a £30m business unit with more than 700 people working in it across the UK, Germany and India. Prior to joining Sopra Steria, I worked for several large financial services and insurance organisations, including RBS and Capital One Bank, and in the Lloyds of London insurance market in a variety of senior management positions.
