Focus on cloud
Dean is responsible for the technology strategy for GFT, with a heavy focus on cloud and new innovative technologies. His focus is on identifying areas of customer business that can be improved via transformation or rationalisation.
Dean’s experience has seen him work on complete cloud migrations for a UK retail bank, Head of Web Engineering for an investment bank, and Head of Technology for a managed hosting provider. This varied experience brought him to GFT where his combination of banking, insurance and IT leadership have been perfectly placed.
Dean is passionate about growing the business and in addition to his day to day responsibilities, was the founder of our graduate intake programme, which trains new starters on a variety of cloud infrastructure and coding skills. Outside the office, he works on the committee of a special needs school, acts as a technology mentor to a nursery, and works as a coach, linesman and referee for a local boys football team.
