#OfficeHours39 with Garry Leacock

5th July 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

With almost 25 years’ experience gained working across a number of tech and consulting verticals, Garry Leacock kick-started his career in academia as a doctoral research assistant. Here he was exposed to the complex world of mathematical modelling and simulation of helicopters, and it was during this time that he got his first proper taste of developing and deploying code.

Upon leaving academia Garry spent seven years as a consultant to the UK defence industry expanding his technical development and coding skills by building computer models of flying munitions, with trajectories plotted in a simulated, one-on-one, aircraft battlespace.

Just over two years ago, Garry returned to fintech, and now works for the UK’s leading cash deposit platform, as Head of IT Ops. Like many businesses in this sector cyber security, risk management, governance and compliance are at the forefront of a rapidly expanding growth initiative. He creates a learning environment for individuals and teams and has supported and managed everyone from apprentice level through to managerial staff as well as multicultural, remotely located teams, whilst acting as a mentor for engineers and up-and-coming leaders.
