Ben SalamaManaging Director, Industry X.0 UK and Ireland Lead at Accenture
I lead our Industry X.0 practice for the UK & Ireland. Industry X is focused on enabling industrial and manufacturing clients exploit the benefits of digital technologies to transform & optimise their operations as well as develop new business streams & enhance customer engagement. I work with manufacturing clients across multiple industries including industrial equipment, automotive, aerospace, defence, consumer goods and life sciences.
Previously, I was the global lead for Accenture’s Connected Operations practice developing Industrial IoT solutions to optimise physical asset usage, supply chain and worker productivity across a range of industries. I am a frequent speaker at IoT industry events.
I have also led Accenture Digital’s Go-to-Market team for the UK & Ireland and the Mobility sales & consulting team for UK & Ireland with an objective to embed mobility into every aspect of our clients’ business as they transition to become ‘connected enterprises’.
I have more than 30 years’ experience as a business leader in the systems integration, software products, and high-tech and financial services industries and have been working in Digital for the last 15 years. I have worked extensively internationally having lived and worked in the US, Asia & continental Europe where I established sales and consulting operations in China, Taiwan & Korea providing mobile projects to the high-tech industry. I have also setup and led offshore delivery centres in China working with multi-national and local enterprises.
I live in London and am married with 2 grown-up daughters. I am keen cyclist and a season ticket holder at Fulham – a Premier League football club fighting to get back into the Championship.
