Coupling a technical background with deep business and economic understanding, [Nick] is a tough but reasonable manager who is no-nonsense and objective in his dealings with internal and external clients as well as suppliers.
Nick has broad focus that positions him as a key influencer of IT strategy. His business stakeholders benefit from his enthusiasm for new technologies coupled with his pragmatism in sourcing new solutions.
[Nick] is an extremely collaborative and competent leader with knowledge of best practices in not only application support but the overall end user experience.The attribute that makes Nick so effective is his collaboration and the ability to work across the table (and the pond) to move initiatives forward, achieve operational efficiency and ultimately improve IT and end user satisfaction.
Nick is a creative and intelligent technology leader. [...] Nick is demanding but fair and manages to get the best out of the people he works with whether it’s staff, internal stakeholders of vendors. He has a firm grasp of the technology landscape and understands how to translate this into value for his organisation.
Nick is immensely passionate about his work and brings tremendous energy into ensuring quality service delivery. He is an enthusiastic innovator, always open and ready to develop new ideas and promote better ways of doing things, while at the same time applying the benefits of a solid technology grounding.
[Nick] is very good at working with people’s strengths and getting the most out of them – which can sometimes be very difficult with many different types of personalities on the team.He is also extremely good at stakeholder and vendor engagement, so much so that many vendors Nick has worked with previously still regard him highly and wish to continue to work with him.
Nick consistently displays the kind of leadership, temperament, and personality that make him a prime candidate for any organisation who want an individual who can drive transformation to achieve significant business impact. Nick is an exceptional manager and colleague and I would recommend him without reservation.
