All while generating momentum through effective communication and `complete cycle` delivery.

As a Partner, Pierre is proud to help organisations on their journey to the cloud and digital transformations, empowering business and IT change with a tangible return on investment – recently saving a global travel organisation $25m through an IPO carve-out and outsourcing to a 3rd party.

Here is a short summary of the things Pierre can help you with:

  • CIO Advisory and offering C Suite leadership support
  • Building business strategy and business transformation
  • Creating IT strategy and IT roadmap development
  • Undertaking the organisational change management
  • Conducting digital management, optimisation and transformation
  • Developing cloud transformation (mainly AWS and Azure)
  • Programme director and leadership

Key achievements include:

  • Created and delivered the IPO carve-out for a global travel organisation, building a robust business case to outsource and relocate a global team to a 3rd party shared service, saving £25m over 5 years (ops revenue) and an additional IT savings of $6m in cloud transformation (over 3 years). The partner was further accountable for defining and delivering the new Target Operating Model for product management, engineering & architecture, development and testing.
  • Engaged with a large financial institute to analyse and define the ISO 20022 Payments Messaging system to identify and mitigate challenges in the organisation leading to the engagement of critical resources and the redefined approach to agile.
  • Defined and built the banks cloud solution with 3rd party consultants. This included redeveloping the cloud strategy, building the AWS cloud platform and delivering the PSD2 solution on the cloud platforms (to meet regularity requirements) whilst introducing an innovative delivery approach (Agile and DevOps) and building the ops support teams for the cloud.
  • Built the onshore and offshore capability delivering cloud-based solutions and development for a PE funded start-up in the UK growing the company to 35 consultants.
  • Undertook the merger & acquisition of a large global services organisation (46,000 globally) which included the migration of all finance, HR, procurement and assets with the “best-of-breed” approach. Further developed a European consultancy practice, growing the portfolio to $125m (was $85m) and a team of 1,200 people globally. Further built a new target operating model and introduced centres of excellence whilst growing the practice and reducing the dependence on contingent staff.

Pierre led the IPO with authority, managing stakeholders and the rest of the team to successfully drive the strategy, supplier engagement and deliverables. Pierre really knows his stuff – across infrastructure and software development specifics, the market players, and supplier engagement processes
