Welcome Onboard Sara!
The i247 Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Sara Hopkins to the newly formed role of Head of IT and Software Development.
Speaking on the appointment Sam Mason, Managing Director, said “this new role is further evidence of our commitment to continue to deliver cutting edge solutions for our customers. Our existing suite of in house developed solutions ITMS and FLEX are market leading but we know we can’t stay still as mobility requirements are changing alongside customers aspirations. It’s clear the market is calling out for new solutions that redefine service offerings and unlock proactive opportunities. Sara’s skills bring a new level of experience to help us deliver our IT roadmap to ensure we are always meeting and exceeding the needs of our fleet and broader automotive customers”
Sara joins i247 Group with extensive experience of IT delivery and software testing across a broad range of customer service focused organisations. Her ability to understand complex technology and business problems enables easy translation of customer needs into the technical requirements ensuring the existing in-house team of developers can execute and deploy at pace.
In joining Sara said, “it’s great to find such a perfect cultural fit as I am committed to delivery which is totally embodied in the i247 Group ethos of “WeDo”. I have a real skill in getting into the detail of the requirements, be it a small system change or large customer project, and then prioritising the work and sequencing of deployment that supports the customer and operational delivery. I’m also a bit evangelical about improving the reputation of technology and have a real passion for quality so testing is always a big focus for me”
Mason added “Sara’s abilities stood out through the interview process and we know in her we have the right mixture of customer focus, technical excellence and personal attributes and are delighted to welcome her on board”
