Fred’s role is to support the specialist design, delivery, engineering, and data science leaders in the EMEA digital team. His work involves setting the vision for what we achieve, helping us hire the best people, nurture culture, and make progress on inclusion and diversity while setting the highest standards for our client work.
Delivering impact can be done in many ways. Our digital team is very diverse, and we really encourage our people to speak up and try to get as many different perspectives to push the boundaries. Management consulting has changed dramatically over the past five years, and I am convinced that this diversity of thought can be a tremendous asset for clients.
Following an early career as an industrial designer, Fred was a first-mover into what was then called ‘new media’ in the late 1990s. In the 25 years since he has worked for clients in almost every sector across all facets of digital thinking and doing. Fred’s colleagues have described his superpower as bringing talented people together and helping them succeed; a high bar that he works hard to honor every day.
I am incredibly fortunate that a passion of woodwork as a child and design as an adult has enabled me to enjoy such an exciting and rewarding career. The best thing is the people I get to work with – their talent fuels my drive for what we do, and I am fully committed to harnessing their potential and enabling us all to have successful lives that deliver for our clients, families, and communities.
Fred loves skiing, sailing, driving and diving but is happiest when horse-riding on game reserves supporting animal welfare and conservation.
