I am excited to take up the role of Chair at Digital Catapult and leverage its proven success to maximise the many opportunities that UK businesses can gain from the adoption of advanced digital technologies.

As we grow and scale Digital Catapult, we will do the same for the UK economy, driving innovation into the heart of industry.

I am passionate about – and known for my role in – UK manufacturing, so I’m especially looking forward to learning and contributing to the UK’s vibrant creative industries sector, as well as establishing connections and learning from the UK’s fantastic tech start-up community. Through Digital Catapult, the UK can build these connections, accelerate adoption and inspire innovators to work together and position this country as a global leader in the 4th industrial revolution.
