UKtech50 2012 - The most influential people in UK IT


13. Gerry Pennell - former CIO, London 2012 Olympics

For a few weeks in 2012, Gerry Pennell was arguably the most important IT executive in the UK. Building, integrating and managing the technology supporting the London Olympic Games was one of the most complex and high-profile assignments in IT, and Pennell has been widely lauded for the success of the IT programme.
