Charles Ewen

Chief Information Officer at Met Office

Profile

I am responsible for the development and implementation of our ICT Strategy and for the internal technical teams within the Technology Information Services Directorate - and work closely with our Science teams to operate our High Performance Computing capability. The Met Office relies heavily upon cutting-edge IT to improve the quality of forecast services and increasingly to make those services accessible and effective for customers and the Public.

I have worked for the Met Office in a number of senior technology roles since 2008 and, prior to that, worked in the Business-to-Business online retail and distribution industry. During this time I used relevant technologies to transform businesses from traditional retail approaches to being internet and technology capable. As well as a number of consulting appointments, I worked within the Premier Farnell group of companies for over 10 years. I have run my own small technology company and started my career as an Electronics Engineer in the defence industry.
