Head of IT Operations at National TheatreSecurity
George Tunnicliffe likes a challenge. With a people centred and personal approach, he has worked in IT across different sectors such as defence, charities, healthcare and in scenarios of rapid growth and transformation. Entering the IT industry with experience from a graphic design and catering background has evolved into people centred approaches to tackling technology objectives for organisations and companies. The creation of a blended team dynamic at its core, supported by a hybrid cloud and As-A-Service platform strategy is enabling George’s teams to deliver modern technologies to support digital and technology change strategies at the organisations he has worked in. An advocate for diverse teams and passionate about building the individual, he has focussed on teamwork, collaboration and empowering those individuals to learn and overcome the challenges a modern IT team faces. As well as making sure good humour and friendly personalities are always present to make IT a positive place, he works to ensure IT is a welcoming team for the organisation and to help build a true partnership. Outside the office George keeps it interesting enjoying performance arts as well as by wakeboarding, indoor skydiving, flowboarding, kayaking and anything else that doesn’t involve a computer!
