He will bring together and expand Atkins’ existing expertise in digital strategy and architecture, complex technology integration and sophisticated data analytics and visualisation, developing a comprehensive service to help clients unlock the benefits of digital transformation.

A particular focus will be embedding a people-focussed philosophy into the practice to deliver holistic solutions centred around the user experience for clients and their customers.
