HELLO, MY NAME IS JACK
I am an innovative and people-focused technology leader with management experience across start-ups, technology, operations, product development and consulting.
Hello and thanks for reading!
I am passionate about solving problems across people, process and technology. To that end, I strive to guide and lead teams toward high-performing, innovative and inclusive cultures, to create spaces that inspire conversations and the collisions of ideas, and to support those who create, make or build. Organisations are nothing if not for the capabilities of the people within them.
Over the decade I've built up deep technology skills across a broad range of domains including: asset management and ITIL / networks and infrastructure / public and private clouds / product and app development / operations and DevOps / cyber and information security / data and AI / automation and integrations.
