IAG GBS MC Update
Dear IAG GBS Team,
You will have seen the announcement today from Willie announcing the new IAG CIO appointment of John Gibbs, who joins IAG on September 2nd from Rolls Royce.
This is a new direction for IT and shows how critical IT strategy is across the Group. The emphasis of bringing all IT activities under one area including Digital is the next step in the evolution of Group IT.
Bill Francis made it clear to me at the end of 2018 that he planned to retire at the end of 2019 and hence why we commenced a recruitment process. I would personally like to thank Bill for all his dedication and determination to get us ready for the future. Bill has done a fantastic job ensuring we are ready to transition to the cloud, whilst exploring and utilising the latest technologies.
Bill said “After 40 years in the travel industry, with 22 of those at BA and more recently IAG, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with all colleagues across the Group.
Change and transformation have always been at the top of my agenda, and whether that was introducing the new mixed fleet cabin crew for BA or creating Group IT within IAG, I hope that I have been able to make a positive difference”.
Director of IAG GBS
