Gary Ford

I am an independent consultant working across the IT sector and the wider management environment, where I have a particular interest in the intersection between technology and diversity and inclusion. I am the founder of Moonshot Consultancy Ltd.

I have more than 30 years’ experience in the IT industry, focused on Financial Services.

Until early in 2020, I was a Managing Director within Global Technology at JPMorgan Chase (JPM), a large US financial services organisation with over 270,000 employees. Whilst there, he led a number of strategic programmes across the firm, as well running several large IT service management functions for their Corporate and Investment Bank.

In the last year, I have also set up 2 other new businesses in partnership with others. The first is a dialogic thinktank called the 4iforum which is looking to help people in leadership roles create new ways of thinking through the power of dialogue. The second is an EdTech start up which is looking to become the TripAdvisor for Education.

I am currently also working with NHS-Digital on a service management transformation programme.
