Principal Architect at EB since 2010, Neil has been involved with Digital and Integration architecture since the 1990s. Lately he’s been instrumental in helping move organisations to Agile methods at scale with a focus on how architecture and architectural governance can work within this environment.
Neil believes trust is earned through a demonstrated ability to focus on what matters most for the client. Understanding the client’s needs, and achieving the outcomes they want, is essential for defining successful solutions and building long-term, mutually-beneficial partnerships.
Neil contributes to his clients’ organisation through informal and formal mentoring of their architecture teams, helping upskill their entire architecture team with better solutions and operational methods. He’s a great fan of experimenting with new technology and learning how best this can be applied to solve customer problems, but dislikes steep learning curves when introducing new technology that can delay real adoption. His expertise has seen him work for IBM, Telstra, National Australia Bank, Barclays Global Investors, Lloyds Banking Group, Travelex, CSC and DWP.
