Tony left school in Scotland at 16 and joined the South of Scotland Electricity Boards pre privatisation, PC's, email, mobile phones, www, google and pre everything tech his kids and colleagues take for granted today. Having spent 20 years in the utilities sector working across the UK in several technology, change and people leadership positions he joined the legal sector in 2008 with Allen & Overy LLP.
Tony is currently Director of IT at Howard Kennedy LLP and chair of the European programme planning council of ILTA. As director of IT he is responsible for day to day technology services, Business Change, Information Security and Technology Innovation. As a senior volunteer leader for ILTA he has chaired the European and International planning councils and chairs the annual European ILTA conference. Continuously improving technology service is mission critical to Tony, as are sharing his knowledge and ensuring everyone around him is given the opportunity to be the best they can be.
Outside of the office volunteering continues to play an important part of Tony's life, supporting local charities and as a trustee for a local secondary academy in his home village in Essex. Tony enjoys most sports, traveling and sampling the local food a drink wherever he finds himself.
