During her time at the professional services giant, Birch held several leadership positions and was responsible for creating and leading high-performing teams, executing business and technology transformations, as well as driving technology innovation for clients. 

She began her career at fuel behemoth BP and later took on leadership positions at Fujitsu Services UK and Computacenter. 

“I am so excited to join Node4, one of the few service providers that meets organisations at an inflection point where they are looking to leverage technology to drive transformational change to their business,” Birch said.

“The group capabilities, strengthened with that of the recent acquisitions, makes us a one-stop shop for our clients.
