Gareth Scrivens

Technical Director at IBM Interactive Experience

A Technical Director with 19 years’ experience in the delivery of technology solutions for high profile projects and clients. I successfully define technical strategies for top-tier global brands and lead international development teams to execute high quality and challenging projects. I have frequently delivered projects comprising teams dispersed globally with many different technologies.

I am currently responsible for the growth and development of the Interactive Development teams for IBM iX.

In this multi-faceted role I set the technology strategy for the group, define the technology standards and techniques used, and ensure the adoption of DevOps and Agile methods. I set the strategy for team recruitment, career development, tooling and development processes. By providing leadership and direction in these areas I provide the bedrock for technology deliveries that iX executes for its many clients.

Prior to this, I was responsible for the operational running of the Technology teams at AKQA London, ensuring the right technology, process and skills were applied to deliver high-quality technical solutions to AKQA’s clients and internal stakeholders.
