Peter Wichmann

I would thoroughly recommend Stuart for interim roles where there is a need to devise a new strategy, or to develop a new model for how IT supports the business.

Stuart is a strong IT leader with a track record in Allianz in delivering business value through IT transformation programmes, whilst at the same time transforming the shape of the IT function itself to better fit the ongoing needs of the business.

He has an excellent grasp of all elements of IT including architecture, design, requirements, project management and infrastructure delivery which equips him well to ask the right questions of his team.  He builds relationships up to Director level to enable him to understand the real business drivers and how IT can contribute to these.

He also works to understand the culture of the team he is leading, their strengths and weaknesses, in order to build a programme of cultural change, despite being recognised as being in an interim position.
