Alison FitzGerald, COO of London City Airport, on being new in role

“Explaining the vision was a challenge: this was an environment that hadn’t invested in IT in a long time, but knew it needed to. So it was really describing the challenge in business speak, not talking about boxes and wires but talking about what the risk to the business was, how we would enable the business, how we would meet the future growth plans.”

Alison FitzGerald, COO of London City Airport, spoke to us about her experiences of being new to a senior IT leadership role, as the first CIO of London City Airport, and her advice for those in the same position.
