Re: Do some research!

The University of Manchester IT services were functional, but would agree that they were in need of modernisation, investment and leadership. What exactly has Gerry Pennell achieved during his 3 years as IT director to improve these services? The IT transformation is not complete, a vast sum of money has been spent by a public institution on consultants and external contractors for very little return on that investment. And Gerry has resigned before completing his ambitious transformation project, just as he did at the Co-op.

Please can we forget about his performance at the Olympics, because this is Gerry's track record now.
