Ilona SimpsonHead of Cross Functional Services Information Technology (CIO) at Innogy SE
Tech is fun, and transforming businesses and operating models leveraging it is both rewarding and stimulating. I have built and refocused teams, turned around and span off IT capabilities to enable and to drive achievement of business objectives.
Delivered results for top tier consulting firms, corporates and PE backed businesses; served on corporate Executive Committees, created a Digital function and run it as a P&L. Successfully completed an M&A (sell side) transaction. Set up operations of start ups, gone through VC funding, became investor myself.
I now help technologists and boards with alignment and prioritisation, strategic planning, investment evaluation and hands on restructuring and reshaping of IT functions.
