Advanced’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Jon Wrennall, has been selected to join the CBI’s prestigious Innovation Council
The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) aims to build an internationally competitive innovation eco-system that reinforced Britain’s strengths.
As part of a three-year minimum term on the Innovation Council, Jon will join other senior business figures to help steer the CBI’s policy work on key policy campaigns, consultations and reports.
Jon joined Advanced over two years ago and is responsible for driving innovation and quality in the development of its suite of software solutions and services.
Mr Wrennall said: “Technology innovation is at the heart of the future prosperity of Britain as organisations change and adapt to succeed in this disruptive digital era.
“Sitting on the Innovation Council means we can provide a voice on the role of technology in creating an internationally competitive economy for the UK. It will also allow us to lead the conversation when it comes to the ethical and moral impact of tech innovations, such as Artificial Intelligence.
“As a business at the cutting edge of digital transformation, I’m looking forward to working with senior colleagues to challenge policies and reports to ensure the vital work that the CBI does continues to represent Britain’s diverse business community and retains the UK’s position as a major global player.”
