Digital Transformation Programme Director at Microsoft Azure Cloud & AI Domain (EMEA)


My passion is helping companies digitally transform in innovative ways through the use of Industry 4.0 technologies. Over the last 20+ years I have held executive leadership roles in global, multi-site organizations and driven successful transformational outcomes in technology organizations. My experience spans multi-disciplined executive roles in Program and Business Operations Management, Partner & GSI Management, Technology Consulting and Enterprise Product Development for ERP, CRM, Cloud and IoT. My global experience enables me to bridge the gap between business strategy, industry trends, technology implementation, and change management for Microsoft’s top 100 strategic clients.
I do this by driving digital transformation and innovation; empowering employees, engaging customers, transforming products/business models and optimizing operations to achieve process efficiencies and business value for customer success. In my current role I lead a global $200M+ P&L programs in the Public & Telco sectors.

My focus has always been on designing and creating strategic customer relationships. In the last 20 years I have worked on customer projects in over 22 countries, predominantly in the Banking & Telco industry, helping customers to think big about transforming who they are and the value they provide to the world. My approach is to engage leaders of companies and organizations to transform and create cultures of innovation.

I am dedicated to helping people and businesses throughout the world realize their full potential - based on Cloud services incorporating Microsoft Azure and AI solutions.
