AN Isle of Man based IT consultant is now vice chairman of the UK’s primary group of chief information officers and information technology leaders.
Steve Burrows, who is a leading IT expert in the island and one of the most respected in the UK, has been elected vice chairman of the Effective Leadership in IT group (ELITE), which is the primary forum for CIOs and IT directors in the UK.
ELITE, which is the IT leadership group within BCS The Chartered Institute for IT, has more than 3,500 members, all of whom are recognised IT leaders.
ELITE hosts thought leadership events around the UK both in its own right and as part of major IT industry conferences to help its members maximise the benefits that organisations obtain through their use of IT.
Immediately following the ELITE annual meeting at which Mr. Burrows was elected he chaired an ELITE event in London for a packed audience exploring the behaviours, skills and competencies necessary to make a truly complete chief information officer capable of enabling and leading an organisation at a strategic level.
Mr. Burrows, who lives in Surby near Port Erin, is principal consultant for Isle of Man based business and technology consultancy SBA.
He is also vice chairman of the membership Board for BCS The Chartered Institute for IT, a director of the Isle of Man section of the Institute, and both a chartered director and a chartered IT professional.
