David M Bibby

IT Director & Project Manager

Profile I am an IT Director/Project Management Professional (Development & Operations) with broad IT experience covering disciplines of change and transition management, project start-ups, operations and support (both user and inter-departmental), service management (ITIL) and application software development. I am solution driven with an expectation of creativity, flexibility and continuous improvement from the teams brought together and led. An experienced and successful communicator with staff at all levels and disciplines. I take a naturally optimistic, friendly and cooperative approach to work, balanced with a resilient and resolute management style. I thrive on challenge and enjoy troubleshooting. I have solid start up experience from running two businesses and a new function within a global law firm
  Managing the change around taking new systems out of project mode into day to day operational running (including service definition, development, resourcing & bedding in)  
  • Built a fully staffed and operational support service (incl. 1st, 2nd and 3rd line support) using the ITIL framework within budget in time for a system go live

  • Transformed a group of individual developers working one to one with internal clients, into a team providing an Application Development and Maintenance service
