Dixon Walter have recently assisted The University of Sheffield with a key appointment: Director of IT.
Following a thorough campaign we are delighted to announce that Bella Abrams was the successful candidate.
Provost and Deputy Vice Chancellor, Professor Gill Valentine has said:
“We have successfully appointed Bella Abrams to the role of Director of IT. Bella has 17 years’ experience of IT leadership in the further and higher education sectors. She will join the University from Sheffield College, where she is currently Chief Information Officer. Bella will report into Keith Lilley, whose job title will change to Director of Infrastructure from 1 January 2019. I would like to thank John McAuley for his leadership of CiCS over the last year. John will continue to act as interim Director until Bella joins us on 7 January 2019”.
We wish Bella the very best of luck in her new role and are delighted to see the university continue to grow from strength to strength.
