Cross moves from designers Arup having previously worked as ITV’s Group Technology Director for over six years

Construction company Atkins has appointed Richard Cross as its Group CIO following his three-year period as CIO for architecture and professional services firm Arup.

Cross was in charge of the technology estate at Arup, the multinational design and engineering company since January 2011, sitting on the Group Executive Board.

It is the second technology appointment at Atkins in recent months; in December 2013 John Drever was promoted to the role as Innovation Director with managing director Geoff Ball commenting at the time it was part of their strategy to “be at the forefront of the ICT evolution”.

The former Accenture and Ernst & Young management consultant was the focus of a CIO profile in August 2012 and also featured in last year’s CIO 100 where he discussed embracing consumerisation and taking his fellow board members to Silicon Valley to look at technology innovation and what the organisation can do with social networking.

Previously Cross was Group Technology Director at broadcaster ITV for over six years, and heavily involved the broadcaster’s turnaround under then-chairman Michael Grade.

It seems odd that while 88% of businesses are undergoing some kind of digital transformation[1], only 25%[2] of them have a clear understanding of their digital transformation journey. So what's driving so many businesses to pursue digital with such recklessness? Broadly speaking, the reason is simply the unprecedented rate of change in digital solutions and services. As we ride the digital tidal wave, consumers and employees change their expectations, ...
