He then went on to lead complex change and digital business transformation programmes for major global technology brands including Hewlett Packard, Airbus and Fujitsu. He has worked with clients across the public and private sector.

Since 2020, Glibbery has been the Chief Information Officer for Grainger Plc, the UK's largest listed residential landlord.

SIA Chair Heather Baily said: "I am delighted to welcome Paul Glibbery as a new non-executive director and member of the Authority."

She added: "Paul brings a wealth of experience from his technology leadership roles. His professional background will be of great value to the Board’s role in establishing and progressing the strategic aims and objectives of the SIA."
