Joining Reconomy in January 2019 in the newly created role of CIO, Jody assumed overall responsibility for the technology strategy and delivery across the group as well as overseeing the successful integration of acquired businesses aligned to Reconomy’s strategic growth plans.
Jody has extensive leadership, strategic and private equity backed board-level experience having spent the last 20 years in various leadership roles over numerous ownership cycles of a scaled, outsourced professional services business with 1,000 employees.
