Tim Sleep appointed to lead the IT Services and Telecommunications Practices in the UK

Never before has the IT services & telecommunications sectors been in so great a demand as it is now.

Both sectors already have large common traits. The economic and disruptive forces which are being accelerated by the pandemic mean that both industries are transforming themselves more quickly than ever before. As demand and competition intensify, the traits of senior leaders are also shifting. Empathy, subject matter expertise, vision and the ability to listen and relate to employees and customers is critical. At the same time, all large firms are making strong commitments to inclusion and diversity across the workforce at all levels. Again, this starts with leadership.

Odgers Berndtson already has an enviable track record of helping the largest telecommunications and IT services firms hire their most senior and high profile executives – both here in the UK and across the world. We now have an opportunity to bring increased focus, leadership and expertise by appointing Tim Sleep to lead these practices.

Tim has relocated from Sydney, Australia where he led the Australian business for Odgers Berndtson and boasts over 30 years’ experience spanning both Europe and APAC. He has held senior leadership positions at SAP, EY and Thomson Reuters, and has served on a not-for-profit board.
