John is the firm's IT Director and takes a lead role in managing all technology services.
John has over 25 years' experience in managing IT functions in professional services, of which 20 have been in the legal industry. Before this, John has worked as an electronics design engineer as well as being lead tech in a seismic operation 'looking for oil' in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. More recently, he was the Head of IT at the Green Investment Bank and a project manager at Macquarie.
John's work includes ensuring the smooth running of the firm's technology and data security systems whilst aligning the IT Strategy to that of the business.
Outside of work is mainly taken up with family but John still manages to cycle, ski and play some tennis and football although a recent run of injuries (and age) means he is seriously having to consider 'walking football'! He particularly enjoys coaching his son's football team and has done since they were wee 5 year olds and are now U16's.
