Head of I.T.
Annika joined Darwin Group in March 2010 as a PA to Richard D. F. Pierce, but her competency in computer literacy and her logical approach to developing company wide management systems was quickly identified, and she quickly progressed in to her current role as Head of I.T.
Annika manages and ensures the efficient operation of the company’s network, applications, web-sites, client servers, databases, and equipment. This includes managing the IT technicians responsible for network maintenance and optimisation, monitoring and diagnosing network and hardware problems, IT service desk functions, and security. She ensures the delivery and continuity of IT services across the business, guaranteeing that relevant IT and telecoms systems are available, with functionality that fully supports operational requirements.
Annika brings a calm and logical approach to business system development, which has enabled Darwin Group to increase efficiency through bespoke intelligent systems. Knowledge and continuous research allow recommendations for changes to existing IT infrastructure to keep up to date with the evolution of technology relevant to the company’s needs.
