The FINkit team is pleased to announce that Susan Sutherland, FINkit Vice President, has been nominated in the Transformation Leader of the Year category of the Women in IT Awards. This category recognises female IT, technology, and business leaders who have led an IT transformation, digital transformation, or business change programme driven by technology.
Organised by Information Age, the Women in IT Awards is the technology industry’s largest diversity event, providing a high-profile platform for celebrating women in IT and identifying new female role models. The awards programme showcases the achievements and innovation of women in IT, and is the technology world’s leading effort to promote conversation about diversity among key influencers. The award winners will be announced at a ceremony on 31 January at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London.
Finalists in the Transformation Leader of the Year category were handpicked based on the planning, execution, and results of transformation programmes, looking particularly at the technologies and innovation involved, best practice, alignment to business goals, impact on the business, training and education, ROI, and how culture shifts were managed.
At FINkit, Susan manages the company’s largest client, the global banking giant Royal Bank of Scotland Group (RBS), and has led many transformation initiatives in her time working with the bank. One of her most notable success stories was delivered in 2016/2017 when Susan led the group-wide Mobile Banking migration (MBM) programme. The newly-classified “mission critical” Digital Platform and customer apps are designed, developed, and operated by Susan’s team, that is dedicated to creating value in close collaboration with RBS.
Previous finalists for Transformation Leader of the Year include Helen Gowler of Avon, Helen Kirby of NFU Mutual, Kelly Olsen of NHS Property Services, and Louise Cheetham of APS Group.
