Former European Healthcare and Life Sciences Business Development Director, IBM

I retired in September 2019 after over 30 years in the IT Industry mainly managing relationships with Public Sector clients. My last position was European Healthcare and Life Sciences Business Development Director a position I assumed in January 2016 where my team's mission was to grow IBM's Healthcare and Life Sciences Business across Europe. I’m delighted to report that we were successful. My previous role was UK and Ireland Healthcare Industry Leader a position I held from July 2013 where I led a team who successfully helped enable healthcare providers to deliver better patient outcomes and optimise the patient experience using IBM healthcare solutions.
Prior to this I was Sales Director within IBM’s Global Business Partner Organisation and from January 2009 I had the privilege to lead a team of around 30 people responsible for delivering challenging business growth objectives.
I was also the Director of Public Sector for IBM’s Systems and Technology Group where my team grew IBM’s business significantly. This role included sales into Consultants and Systems Integrators who were also active in the Public Sector.
I worked for IBM for over 30 years in a variety of roles. After a stint in engineering in Greenock Manufacturing followed by product development at Hursley Development Lab, I transferred to a Public Sector Sales Role in 1996 and during the next nine years was the Client Relationship Executive for a variety of IBM Government customers including the CAA, RMG and the NHS. I was also the Global Client Relationship Exec for GSK between 2000 and 2002.
I originate from Glasgow and hold a BSc (Hons) Degree in Chemistry and an MPhil in Production Management and Manufacturing Technology. I also have a Diploma in Education and am a qualified Chemistry teacher.
Since joining IBM I have been actively involved in external programmes which promote Science, Engineering and Technology as potential career options for girls. I was a member of IBM UK Women’s Leadership Team responsible for the development and execution of the gender diversity agenda for IBM in the UK.
I live in Surrey with my husband and our four daughters. I am interested in volunteering opportunities that enable me to ‘give back’ helping individuals and organisations.
