Andy Steer

Chief Technology Officer

After spending 4 years in Britain’s Windiest City (Plymouth) I graduated in 1996 with an Honours Degree in Electronic Communications Engineering, unfortunately somewhere along the way I lost the passion for the subject. Instead, I pursued a nascent interest in computing which led to a help desk role supporting a large and demanding Crystal Reports user base, a brutal introduction to the world of Business Intelligence.

A combination of enthusiasm and willingness accompanied by a small degree of competency led to a life on the road. A fun few years followed, full of customer consulting projects and the delivery of technical training courses far and wide in the role of Principal BI Consultant at CONTEMPORARY plc, a leading independent BI consulting practice.

Opportunity took me away from project work into the role of Professional Services Director focusing on project delivery and business growth. I was instrumental in introducing Agile Methodologies, revolutionising the approach to solution implementation and leading to a period of sustained growth and technical achievement.

In 2010 I took over as Managing Director of CONTEMPORARY and in 2011 led the business through the transition following the successful sale to itelligence, after which I became Director of the newly founded Business Analytics division. After the 2012 acquisition of Blueprint I took up the post of UK Group CTO with responsibility for defining and driving the evolution of the business in step with our customers and partners. I spend most of my time listening and learning from 3 sets of people; our customers, our partners and our employees to ensure that we are able to deliver the innovative solutions that will power our customers future success.

When not at work I spend most of my spare time either drinking wine with my Wife, playing Lego with my sons or getting depressed supporting Tottenham Hotspur.
