I joined the firm as Head of IT in 1998. I previously worked for CABS UK as UK Director and Head of Professional Services.
I obtained a degree in Business Studies whilst working as a trainee accountant with Ernst & Young Australia before moving into general business services. I became a Tax and Financial Services Consultant for Bongiorno & Co. In 1985 I became account manager and consultant with CABS Pty Ltd, a leading supplier of Practice Management Systems. Relocating to the UK in 1991, I became a manager for CABS UK and then subsequently director for CABS UK Pty Ltd & CABS Australia Pty Ltd, which then merged with Solution6 Ltd in 1997. My experience from the implementation of practice management systems for firms such as PwC, Deloitte & Touche & KPMG throughout Europe and South Africa has given me significant insight into the system management requirements of professional service firms.
I am a member of the firm’s IT Committee, with a focus on the formation and integration of IT strategy across the firm. My experience covers such aspects as data protection, cyber security, business system change management, operational systems management and the delivery of projects in support of the firm’s business requirements. I am chairman of the Leading Edge Alliance European IT Group and I hold an accreditation for Prince 2 project management.
