I managed my first big redesign and refactoring project in 2009 on a contract for BAA. My next assignment (2010) was to manage a £12M Group level eCommerce programme for Acromas, where I led a mix of lift and shift and refactoring migration projects across across the Group. Since 2010 I have seen a constant demand for migration work-streams on most of my projects and programmes.
Below are three different migration projects that I have managed during the past 10 years. The most recent migration I led was at HRP where I worked for two years as their Strategic Digital Channels Manager. At HRP I was following my own strategy and my product development road-map. This assignment summarised below and covered in much more detail on this link.
[Update 2019] I was recently selected by the Reach plc, one of the UK’s most successful publishing companies, to re-platform the Daily Express Digital Edition. This is one of the highest performing digital publications in the UK. By the time I arrived, a change of strategy was being discussed and ratified to put the re-platforming on hold. I was therefore deployed into a Product Management role, picking up responsibilities from the incumbent CTO who was leaving the business.
