Socitm is delighted to announce it has appointed Dave Sanderson as its regional director for the North. His region primarily covers the North of England, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
This role is a first for Socitm and reflects its commitment to engaging directly with existing and potential members across the UK.
Throughout a distinguished career, Dave has worked within the ICT sector in a variety of high-level sales and account management positions. Renowned for his expertise and collaboration, he is already a vital part of the Socitm community, currently being Secretary for the West Midlands region.
Dave has extensive experience of developing strategic relationships with senior leaders and influencers across the public sector. He has in-depth knowledge and understanding of the strategies, constraints and policies and day to day challenges Socitm members face in today’s disruptive environment. This will only intensify and develop as he settles into his new regional director post.
Among Dave’s principal responsibilities will be engaging with new communities and discussion groups around design, digital and local public service delivery and policy. He will also take a lead in identifying and nurturing strategic relationships across Socitm’s regional communities, focusing on the needs of members and understanding their current and future vision and requirement.
Sanderson recently said:
“As Socitm establishes itself further as the preferred network for ICT professionals who shape and improve public services, this is an exciting time to come on board.
“In the current climate, technology, risk and requirement are constantly changing. It’s never been more important for digital leaders in the public sector to come together and share best practice and experience, both what went well and what could have worked better.
“Being no stranger to Socitm, I already understand the challenges decision makers face each day and I can’t wait to build stronger relationships with them to help develop the networking opportunities and resources they need to thrive.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing my experience and knowledge to the role and embracing the next chapter of not only my career but in the growth of the Socitm community.”
