An obsession with taking things apart has always served Nigel well so the exciting world of technology and all its nuts, bolts and volts was a logical career choice for him. Joining Rackspace in early 2011 Nigel is showing the benefit of his own unique style of CTO leadership where he is brought experience from the likes of Associated Northcliffe Digital, lastminute.com, Operandi-Group and CityReach International. He has also served on non-executive boards for Photobox, Digital UK and Inview Interactive.
Nigel leads Rackspace's UK Product Management function that works on the development our OpenStack community and is also our technical evangelist and our loud voice in the market. Rackspace have a world-class customer offering and it's his job to ensure that everyone knows that.
He loves Rackspace because "I get to have fun, learn and build - this covers everything from impacting our Product strategy to dressing up as Olivia Newton John ... a truly defining moment!"
