Mark is in charge of all our IT, ensuring efficient business as usual, but also leading the whole System1 digital transformation. It’s a good job that he loves a challenge and working at high velocity because he’s managed a wholesale move of our services to the cloud, expansion of our delivery team, and re-engineering our “Test Your…” suite of products. Mark is exceptionally focused, efficient and organised. In short, he gets stuff done.
Mark brings to System1 over 20 years experience in major IT re-platforming and change programmes across Sainsburys, Specsavers, and Wiggle. There’s nothing in project and programme management, service management, operational management, cost management, and strategy that Mark hasn’t seen and done. Although his son (when younger) had the impression that Mark just, “sits in front of a computer talking a lot and giving instructions”!
The energy that Mark channels into his work is also seen in his free time. He loves to play online games – “anything with high adrenaline”, and lift weights in the gym – “lots and as heavy as possible”. He also enjoys watching live bands at local pubs with his family. When asked what sort of music, “rock, pop… anything with energy”!
“I’m in this to make a difference and make System1 the best. 100% passionate about beneficial change and efficient business services delivered through technology, particularly cloud and digitisation.”

We went on a work team karting night at the end of covid19 lock-down. We all relaxed, raced, and were shunting around. I didn’t win though so that was unacceptable!!!
