“I loved my time at M&S, but I didn’t want to be there for the rest of my life. I joined Accenture, looking for a change of industry, but realised very quickly my retail skills were valuable to clients who wanted to transform their business. Retail is very relatable - we’re all shoppers after all.
At Accenture, I worked with Ian Geddes, who I followed to Deloitte when he moved to set up a retail team here. I wanted to be part of it, and he’s the reason I joined the firm in 2009. He taught me so much about being out in the market, focussing on attention to detail and building long-term relationships with clients and celebrating successes - even the little ones.
By 2012, I was the project manager setting up Deloitte Digital UK. Most recently, I was leading our consumer industry in our consulting business, overseeing retail, automotive, consumer goods and travel. I specialise in digital commerce platforms. In June 2022, I took on leadership for our Deloitte Digital business as it celebrated its 10th
anniversary, working alongside 1,200 talented specialists in engineering, creative design, research, data and strategy.
I love the culture: we have an incredibly diverse team of people who bring themselves to work every day and do a brilliant job for our clients. We have studios across London, Bristol, Belfast, Manchester, Edinburgh and Stockholm. We’re committed to making it work for our colleagues. One of our team had to go to Spain for family reasons, so we got her a video robot so she could join remotely in London every day!”
“In 2012 I was helping to launch our Deloitte Digital Business. Now I have the opportunity to lead it. It’s amazing what can happen in 10 years.”
