Ending a five year stint as Fujitsu UK and Ireland CTO, Jon Wrennall has today been named as Advanced Computer Software’s new Chief Technology Officer.
Tasked with taking Advanced’s software development/product suite to the next level, Wrennall will focus on enhancing quality and innovation at the company.
At Fujitsu, Wrennall oversaw 1,200 architects and grew the company from a largely public sector client base to nearly 50% private sector.
Boasting 20 years’ experience in the industry, Wrennall was Chief Information Officer, Transformation Director and SIRO at the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) before his move to Fujitsu.
Prior to the VOA, Wrennall served as Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs’ first Chief Technology Officer, leading the integration of the former Inland Revenue and Customs & Excise organisations.
Replacing James Berry, who developed Adastra, Wrennall said: "I cannot think of a better time to join Advanced. The business is going through an exciting period of growth and is investing heavily in software development, so I see this as a massive opportunity to build on the broad set of products and services."
Gordon Wilson, CEO, Advanced Computer Software Group says, "Jon’s appointment as our new CTO is an excellent start to the new year and is an example of the calibre of senior executives who are inspired to join Advanced.
"He brings unrivalled experience to the role as well as a passion for technology and proven leadership skills, which will further enhance our products and take us closer to our goal of becoming a world class business."
In regard to leadership skills, Wrennall founded the Fujitsu Distinguished Engineer Programme, recognising technology and excellence of role models who are shaping the industry.
