Fujitsu Appoints Lucy Dimes as CEO of the UK & Ireland

Dimes will focus on driving growth across UK private and public sectors

London, June 27, 2016

Fujitsu today named Lucy Dimes as its Chief Executive Officer of the UK & Ireland, a position she takes up with immediate effect. Lucy brings with her over 20 years of experience in the technology sector, having previously held senior leadership roles at the likes of BT and Alcatel-Lucent (now Nokia). The role will see her lead Fujitsu’s hugely successful £1.8bn UK & Ireland business which currently employs over 14,000 people in the region.

Prior to being named Fujitsu’s CEO, UK & Ireland, Lucy was Chief Operating Officer of Equiniti and previously CEO UK & Ireland at Alcatel-Lucent. These positions followed a 16-year career at BT where she held a variety of roles including Head of Broadband & Internet Development and Managing Director of Group & Openreach Service Operations. She was also the recipient of the CBI’s First Women Award for Science & Technology in 2013. 

Lucy takes over from Regina Moran whose time at the Fujitsu UK & Ireland helm saw major customer wins including Centrica and the Environment Agency, and a successful program for improving the company’s profitability and an enhancing its relationship with the society. Regina has now moved into an EMEIA-wide role within Fujitsu’s Business & Application Services division.

Lucy will report to François Fleutiaux, Head of Country Leadership and Sales at Fujitsu EMEIA, who said: “Fujitsu has recently reorganised to better serve its customers on a global scale, and I have appointed a number of very experienced leaders to further drive growth in EMEIA.  Lucy brings a wealth of experience to lead the UK and Ireland, one of our larger businesses, helping us leverage that success into other parts of the region. As a company, Fujitsu is extremely well equipped to help businesses - large and small - on their digital transformation journey – from the Internet of Things (IoT) to digital commerce and smart tech.  The technology infrastructure and services we provide now will be the foundations that future societies build on.  We’re at a truly pivotal point in tech history and I’m delighted to bring Lucy’s expertise into the team at this important time.”

Commenting on her appointment Lucy Dimes said: “I’m excited to take on this role at Fujitsu, a company I’ve admired for many years. The company has a rich heritage across all sectors – working with the biggest names in tech and leading some of the most innovative work in the industry. The focus now must be to innovate and grow.”
