Me

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I normally write about technical implementations of major change programmes. I am in the relatively unique position of having worked on 5G implementations, Huawei vendor selections and Covid-19 research.

I’m currently the Chief IT Architect and Head of Software Engineering at the Francis Crick Institute (amazing science in an amazing location). I am an advisor to MEC start-up ori.co (doing some really interesting stuff at the moment). Previously I was the Chief IT architect and 5G lead at UK mobile operator EE (I avoid saying BT). Currently I am busy with Covid-19 relating testing and research processes. I’m also regular conference speaker (a lot of stuff for TMForum) and consultant.

I started my career as a Java developer with BEA Systems working on the Weblogic Application Server product line. I have worked in Finance (Barclays Capital & Bupa Insurance) or Telcos including: Telefonica, o2 UK, T-Mobile UK, UPC NL, UPC Austria, UPC Global, QWest USA, Vodafone Group, Vodafone UK, Vodacom South Africa, Vodafone India, BT & EE.

If you want to know more, just want to chat or get some advice, or are even looking to hire an enterprise architect for your project then please reach out.

Thx,

Charles
