He heads up the digital & innovation sourcing team, who are deal specialists for digital technologies (Blockchain, IoT, Cloud Services, Cyber, Virtual/Augmented Reality, Automation, Robotics etc) across bp and are responsible for the way in which bp approaches the market and secures supply in this space. Working across the business, the team is here to land technology deals which are either highly complex, or innovative.
