Joe Hodkinson Cloud Architect, Global IT at PZ Cussons

As a robust IT Leader and Senior Cloud Architect, I have a demonstrable success of working with C-level and executive leadership teams to set strategies and lead the technical vision for transformational cloud programs in large and complex distributed businesses.

I am engaging, confident, and driven with the ability to adapt quickly for the delivery of IT services from a commercial, strategic, and financial viewpoint, to optimise results.

I provide leadership for architecture, design, and engineering, acting as a ‘trusted advisor’ and building a culture of trust with peers and cross-functional teams.

I work closely with my customers to help build and shape Cloud Centre of Excellence (CCoE) teams to ensure the CCoE can provide the business with insight into technology best practice and support the company with the implementation of innovative business solutions for the future. I establish long-term objectives and standards of performance for the Cloud Centre of Excellence team and set process and metrics to ensure the team is focussed and productive.

I have held key positions for numerous public and private sector customers both nationally within the UK and further afield across Europe.
