“The firm’s strong focus on delivering valuable outcomes for the organisations they support and their commitment to creating positive partnerships is entirely in line with my own approach and meant the decision to take on this role was a simple and extremely welcome one.
“Technology is now intrinsic to the successful operation of the vast majority of businesses – that was true even before the onset of the pandemic and, as the process of recovery continues, IT will only become more important as a key driver of innovation. Our focus will be on helping our clients deliver more value from IT and digital as well as enhancing their relationships within their organisations and with their customers and citizens.”

He is a forward-thinking leader on all aspects of IT enablement and Digital change. His delivery of results, both client side and as a consultant, is the perfect mix to lead this part of our business. Our clients will really value Ali and the team’s deep experience in their current digital and IT transformation challenges.”
