Stuart’s experience is vast and highly relevant to Elevate’s clients, whether offering technology advisory, scaled talent and technology teams, CTO-as-a-service, fixing modernisation programmes, scaling technology product businesses, or introducing advanced technologies, such as machine learning and artificial intelligence.

Stuart has worked across sectors, such as financial services, education, government, and utilities, and has a polyglot technology background, but in more recent times has specialised in Microsoft Azure to help enterprise organisations extract maximum value from their Microsoft subscription, whether that’s across cloud, data or software engineering disciplines.

Stuart loves what he does and is always interested in speaking to purpose led leaders and organisations about their technology challenges and growth opportunities.

Stuart is one of the most dedicated and talented people I had the privilege of knowing and working with. His mastery of code and digital systems is best-in-class. He is a developer of the highest degree and has done a formidable job of leading digital transformations, overseeing large teams, involving himself in all aspects of the technology, from back-end to UX.

Stuart will see a task, project or mission through its inevitable challenges, stick by it through setbacks, break barriers and leap over obstacles. If there’s a bug – Stuart will find it and eliminate it. If there’s a problem – Stuart will define it and solve it.

I could not have wished for a better partner and CTO than Stuart.
