Biography

Gareth Holt

I'm now responsible for all technology at London & Partners (www.londonandpartners.com) - the official promotional organisation for London. This role covers both IT Infrastructure and Support as well as my previous responsibility for the web development team as Head of Delivery.

London & Partners was formed in 2011 from three preious bodies, one of which was Visit London where I was Digital Operations Manager from 2009. I introduced the team here to Scrum.

Previously, I ran the web development team for an online marketing specialist called Jellyfish. From Jan 07 to April 09. We successfully transitioned to Scrum.

Even earlier I worked at Reed Business Information for around 11 years, latterly as Lead Product Manager in the Web Solutions group, and before that as CTO of Estates Gazette Group - where we built several award-winning web sites, the first of which launched in June 1996.

I've gained a good appreciation of developing and supporting web publishing, ecommerce and online marketing activities over the last 17 years.
