As Group Chief Operating Officer, Antony is responsible for service delivery and plays a pivotal role in C5’s future vision and growth plans. His role includes leading and supporting the management team in the making of operational decisions, ensuring that C5 are adequately resourced to continuously improve services and remain at the cutting edge of technology. Antony also ensures that there is team development whist ensuring operational efficiencies.
Antony is also a member of the C5 Alliance Group Board, and accountable for the C5 infrastructure and internal systems. He has a track record of continually improving processes, which was recognised in July 2016 when IT Services in Jersey achieved two international security certifications in ISO20000-1 and ISO27001.
Having started his career as an IT technician, Antony quickly recognised the impact of technology to achieve key business objectives and eliminate risk. His background in the technology sector has allowed Antony to utilise a wealth of experience to the benefit of his team and his clients. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the IT industry and moved to Jersey in 2011, having held a number of technical and operational roles in the UK. He was taken on initially as Head of Service Delivery and Operations and progressed to Managing Director of IT Services, Jersey. Antony then joined the C5 board prior to taking on his latest role.
Antony prides himself on his transparent approach to client relationships and team management. This style of leadership has seen Antony investing a lot of time into developing a service culture based on excellence and continual improvement. To achieve this, Antony developed the Take PRIDE service culture, structure and progression plans which have enabled his team to see unprecedented financial growth and has seen his junior team progress into their own managerial positions.
Fun fact: Antony used to be an Undertaker – but that was just in his captaincy of a 5-a-side footie team called the Undertakers to strike fear into his opponents… it didn’t work!
