Chief Digital Officer

Alex Roth

I am a CIO / CDO with proven experience of delivering high value & high stakes transformational outcomes for complex and demanding global businesses. I specialise in IT programme delivery, digital transformation & turnaround, particularly within global FMCG and Retail. I do however also have a passion for all things practical and mechanical and learning new things is a passion! I understand and have deep experience of both traditional and digital modern technologies, methodologies and cultures. I am thus able to support organisations in transition, as well as support younger organisations with maturity. I am not your average CIO: I am customer, commercially and strategically focused and first and foremost passionate about helping organisations to achieve growth and value. I have a deep knowledge of Agile and DevOps and how to use these to achieve fast technology delivery in even the most traditional of organisations. I am a strong leader and I have a reputation for building high performing and motivated teams. My culture and working style is very collaborative and very focused on team empowerment and growth. I operate well in ambitious large organisations with a dynamic culture but in many ways I would be at home in a passionate small team environment. I have Board level experience as CIO at LandSec. I also sit on the Board as well as the Audit Committee and Customer Service Committee in an independent advisory capacity for A2 Dominion.
