An Isle of Man based IT consultant is now Vice Chair of the UK’s primary group of CIOs and IT leaders. Steve Burrows, who is the leading IT expert on the island and one of the most respected in the UK, has been elected Vice Chair of the Effective Leadership in IT group (ELITE), which is the primary forum for CIOs and IT Directors in the UK.

ELITE hosts thought leadership events around the UK both in its own right and as part of major IT industry conferences to help its members maximise the benefits that organisations obtain through their use of IT. Immediately following the ELITE AGM at which Mr. Burrows was elected he chaired an ELITE event in London for a packed audience exploring the behaviours, skills and competencies necessary to make a truly complete Chief Information Officer capable of enabling and leading an organisation at a strategic level.
