Christina Howell

Head of Cloud

AND Digital we build platforms for new products that are in the Cloud.

I managed a team of 50 people who work on Cloud Projects, we work with clients to enable them to move into Public Cloud. Where possible we automate.

i love to see things being automated from 8 weeks to 2 hours, i love to see the people who work for AND grow and learn new skills. I love to encourage more people in the Cloud Ops role especially women as it can be lonely sometimes

i do commercials with clients, I work out what a client needs technically, I provide great engineers based on their skillset. I work as a technical lead to architect and ensure security in the cloud

i have moved jobs a lot, i started as a graduate of Compaq computers, then HP, and many more companies. I have a diverse skillset because of the jobs I have and also women can be a leader and also be technical.

my aim is to become an exec hopefully next year, but my greatest achievement will be when we have training program to bring people in Cloud more, it is one of my main ambitions for next year.

Dance, walk my dog, and listen to music. I love to travel, missing this at the moment.

As long as you are determined, have resilience, you can achieve anything because only you can stop you.
