Summary

I am a C-level manager willing to take on non-executive directorships for software houses or companies for which IT forms a core resource. My position as senior manager/director is built upon previous hands-on work at the highest technical level. I have experience with responsibilities for the management of the resources and development in a number of countries, including offshore. I have had responsibility for the delivery of projects, ensuring they are delivered on time and to budget, setting the quality process, and mentoring staff and team leads to abide with best practice in software development. I am able to motivate myself and those around me and set goals and deadlines both for myself and those around me to achieve results. I am free to travel as needed, including internationally if required. I am able to give referees in both India and the UK.
