Job Title : Group CIO

Organization : Reed Exhibitions

Since joining Reed Exhibitions (RX) in 2006, Dominic Shine has embarked on an ambitious programme to transform the way the company operates, using technology.

Under the programme, new processes and technology platforms are being rolled out across RX’s global business – taking in ebusiness, finance and sales and marketing.

Technology is key to supporting the international portfolio of events staged by RX each year, with RX handling more than 460 events in 36 countries.

Shine’s IT strategy reflects his determination to drive Reed’s business forward using the latest technologies, with mobile, cloud computing and social networking high on his agenda.

He is bringing these new technologies into the company – using cloud platforms in combination with on-premise legacy platforms, as well as integrating the RX global ebusiness platform with social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to improve customer service.

Shine held a range of senior change management and technology leadership roles in the 16 years prior to joining RX, working for financial sector organisations in Europe and the US.

He holds a BSc in management and computer science and is married with two children.
