360°IT Welcomes Renowned CIO to Management Team

(PresseBox) (London, ) Reed Exhibitions is thrilled to welcome Denise Plumpton as Non-Exec Director for 360°IT. Denise will work with its management team to advise on the continuous development of the 360°IT strategy and content, including its exciting new show 360°IT - The IT Infrastructure Event. Having previously held roles as Director of Information at the Highways Agency, CIO at Powergen (now part of E.On), IT Director with TNT UK Ltd and currently holding nonexec positions at Centro and The Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust, Denise's experience will provide unparalleled insight into the issues causing Heads of IT within UK organisations anguish today.

Denise's reputation for leading strategic change and bringing IT and the core business closer together is renowned. Having worked with IT departments of all sizes including one numbering several hundred people, her experience spans resourcing to outsourcing including insourcing, changing suppliers, rightsizing, downsizing, and more recently, whilst with the Highways Agency (HA), she recruited and developed an inhouse team of IT professionals in programme/project management and business analysis. Whilst with HA she is credited with transforming the provision of traffic information to the public, media and industry bodies; and brought together a whole range of infrastructure services into a single managed service contract. Denise is well versed in using developments in infrastructure to save costs while improving service for the business (and its customers). This handson understanding will provide the management team with immediate feedback and input into the entire strategy around 360°IT - focused specifically on ensuring the event delivers unrivalled value to both its CIO and midtier management audience.

Her experience and connections can only further strengthen the direction of this key event as she brings insight from both sides of the table - matching the attending audiences need for relevant information in the most suitable format carefully balanced with a strong blend of leading technologies. I look forward to working with Denise."
