I am CEO of Avanade, a Seattle-based company focused on delivering innovative solutions for our clients and bringing them the art of the possible in a digital world through the power of people and the Microsoft ecosystem. I believe Avanade’s purpose is to make a genuine human impact. I’m committed to making our clients successful on their digital journeys, staying on the pulse of the next wave of technology, and fostering a team that feels inspired, confident and cared for. I am a passionate supporter of diversity and inclusion and am the executive sponsor of our Women’s Employee Resource Group which inspires women and empowers connections to drive personal and professional growth and innovation. As our executive sponsor for Technology for Social Good, I work with a team that brings the power of the cloud and digital technology to non-profit organizations to digitally transform their workplaces and accelerate their social impact. I am a native of London and began my career with Avanade UK in 2008 as Head of Enterprise Applications and Infrastructure Consulting, then went on to run the Avanade UK business for two years and eventually spearheaded strategy and operations across 13 European countries. In my previous role as President of Product & Innovation, I focused on defining and delivering innovative solutions for our clients. Working with globally diverse teams and clients, I draw inspiration from the different backgrounds and cultures I am fortunate enough to experience. As a leader, I focus on building the strengths of individuals to improve our team performance and am inspired by the growth mindset approach of trying new things, developing oneself and bringing empathy to the workplace.
