As part of its commitment to global customers in key industry sectors, BT Global Services has announced the appointment of new members to its leadership team. BT Global Services has developed four strategic sector teams to better serve its customers: banking & financial markets, government & health, consumer packaged goods and manufacturing, logistics & pharmaceuticals. Customers active in these sectors benefit from a range of industry focused assets in product portfolio, solution designs and infrastructure as well as sector specific customer management and service teams. The appointment of these key executives to the BT Global Services leadership team is indicative of BT’s focus and investment in industry specific solutions for global customers.

The BT Global Services leadership team, reporting to CEO Jeff Kelly, now comprises:

Andy Nicholson leads for global banking and financial markets, where BT supports the world’s top banks, exchanges, global broker-dealers, global fixed income securities firms, investment managers and hedge funds. Andy has been leading BT’s activities in this sector since April 2009.

Neil Rogers leads for global government & health. Neil has been leading BT’s activities in this sector since August 2010. Prior to that Neil was Global Chief Procurement Officer for BT Group where he transformed BT’s procurement achieving cost savings and performance improvements.

Kim McMann leads on global consumer packaged goods. Kim joins BT from HP where she led the company’s billion dollar infrastructure technology outsourcing business in Asia Pacific.

Bas Burger leads our global commerce organisation, in charge of manufacturing, logistics and pharmaceuticals. Bas joined BT in 2008 from Getronics, to lead the Benelux region, where he transformed the way BT operates, improving both its performance and the service delivered to BT customers in the region.

Jeff Kelly, CEO BT Global Services, said: “BT Global Services operates globally and delivers locally for our customers, and our diverse global leadership team reflects our commitment to the industries in which our customers operate. I believe we already have a unique breadth of scope, reach and capability. By focusing our organisation around our customers, we offer them improved access to teams with decades of experience of solving problems in their sector. This is much more than a layer of sales activity, this is about specialist people, portfolio and intellectual property, embedded throughout our business. Our customers can leverage many of our market leading assets, such as the BT Radianz platform supporting global banking and financial markets, or our large number of accredited supply chain specialists supporting the consumer packaged goods and global commerce sectors or the unique know-how we have developed in global health through our successful deployment of government contracts in the UK. We have been serving the world’s biggest brands in each of those industries for many years, and have a track record of helping them thrive. We have an absolutely unique competitive advantage that will reinforce our position as a global leader in networked IT services.”
