Job Title : VP of information technology

Organization : Baker Hughes

Jane Scott became vice president of information technology at oil and gas field services Baker Hughes early in 2010 and has responsibility for IT across the company’s nine global regions.

Scott also oversees the industrial services portfolio and integrated operations business segments and manages portfolio management and the global program office, both of which are being reviewed.

Scott is also a member of Baker Hughes’ diversity council, aimed at creating an inclusive culture and a workforce that reflects the geographical reach of the organisation.

This is the third time Scott has been on the CIO50, having appeared on the 2010 list just after joining Baker Hughes, and in 2009 when she was IT director at food and catering delivery company 3663.

She spent six years with 3663 during which she changed the role of IT in the organisation, integrated three acquisitions into the company and implemented several business change initiatives.

Scott started her career with Mars, where she spent five years after graduating from Oxford University with a degree in mathematics.

She then moved to Coca-Cola Schweppes – later The Coca-Cola Company – where she spent seven years living and working around the world including two years in both the US and Japan as well as stints in Asia, Germany, Latin America and South Africa.

Pastimes outside of work include travelling, exotic cookery and the occasional extreme sport such as a bungee jump over Victoria Falls and hang-gliding in Brazil. Scott is also a sports fan and a keen follower of West Ham despite hailing from Manchester.
