Cheryl began her career in technology in 2000 working for Apple starting as a receptionist within their call centre. She used her curiosity into how the Mac OS worked to learn and grow her skills to enable her to progress into a 3rd line support role for Apple customers.
She has worked her way up the ladder within many large organisations like the BBC, Apple, News international, Microsoft, HSBC. Over her career she has undertaken many roles from Desktop support to project management and Global IT Director.
Cheryl has more recently shifted her focus within her career in technology to move away from traditional IT and into the world of engineering where she has in her past 2 roles lead Devops teams to support the CI/CD journeys for both Yammer and more recently for the past 2 years HSBC. In her current role at HSBC Cheryl has built a team and function globally from scratch to support the new Digital Platform for HSBC retail and wealth and banking consumer products. As an advocate for agile devolvement she is working within the business to move away from monolithic development practices and to adopt a mircoservice and API environment.
