Kevin is a Partner at This Partners and has over 30 years’ experience within IT, with the last 12 years focussed on Sourcing Advisory, Commercial Negotiation, Supplier Strategy and Procurement Leadership, covering the full spectrum of IT spend.
Kevin’s depth of IT experience has seen him work across multiple industries, including Financial Services, Banking, Manufacturing, Energy, Insurance, Telecommunications and Consultancy. Prior to joining This Partners, Kevin enjoyed a hugely successful interim appointment as Head of Global IT & Digital Procurement for a leading FMCG, alongside a seat on the IT & Digital Leadership Team.
Kevin has a technical background focussed mainly on Telecommunications, Networks and Data Centre Infrastructure, accompanied by a solid background in Programme Management and Operations, having led multiple teams and programmes for various blue chip organisations. Kevin has a cognitive empathy approach to negotiation, always looking to understand what drives certain behaviours in order to achieve a result that is long lasting and built on strong relationships.
Outside of work, Kevin is a keen sports fan, enjoying golf, motor racing and football but his playing days are now well behind him! Kevin enjoys spending time with his family and (time permitting) enjoys travelling, cooking and tinkering with his son’s classic Mini.
