I’ve worked in software development and programming for over 15 years, seven of which have been focused on developing bespoke relocation industry tech products.
I draw upon a varied career that started in graphic design, then working as a developer, and also as a general manager of a creative agency, working primarily in the healthcare sector. This varied but related experience has given me strong insight into how creative, technical, operations and management interconnect.
As Digital Director at Icon, I manage a team that focuses on building and innovating new technologies and using data to enhance Icon global mobility service delivery. Our approach is to build enabling tech products that provide value and solutions to those who use them — improving productivity, efficiency and delivering more insight.
I really enjoy the daily challenge and motivation of working in a people-centric company that is forward-thinking and embraces innovation and technology, but not just for its own sake.
Constantly learning is something that keeps me inspired and engaged. In my field, things are always changing and enhancing so it’s important to keep on top of the latest developments, trends and hot topics.
I like to think that as a manager I encourage others to contribute their ideas and skills in a meaningful way. I believe people are more motivated and engaged when they feel they’re directly contributing, have some autonomy, and are being listened to.
