Neville Howard is a senior partner in our Technology Integration team. He focuses on large and complex IT procurement and outsourcing programmes, particularly in financial services.
Neville can draw on 30 years of IT experience, which has included major IT sourcing initiatives for organisations as diverse as Reuters, the NHS, Barclays, Diageo, Deutsche Bank, ABN AMRO and the FSA.
These engagements have covered every stage of the sourcing lifecycle, from strategy - including advice on whether or not to outsource - through procurement to post-contract transformation, performance reviews and exit. The size of the sourcing deals he has supported has ranged from a few £m, to over £2bn. They cover the entire spectrum of IT services, including networks, data centres, desktop, service management and application development.
Neville and his team of outsourcing, off-shoring and procurement specialists have helped their clients achieve significant cost savings, as well as performance improvements and increased flexibility. He has also been instrumental in helping clients and their suppliers resolve significant commercial and operational issues, helping realise the benefits that were promised when the deal was first struck.
