Veronika Field

Having been born during the period of the breakdown of the Soviet Union, I grew up in Russia and Latvia in an environment of major uncertainty and continuous change.

This had a major impact on my decision to do a degree in Engineering and dedicate my career to driving progress in the fast paced and evolving world of technology.

Since my move to the UK at the age of 18, I graduated from the University of Bradford with First Class Honours in Engineering and had two successful internships (AIRBUS UK & Xype Ltd) working as a junior consultant, focusing on strategy and development of technologies to support aircraft aerodynamics calculations.

After graduating from university, I spent 2 years on a Graduate scheme at Fujitsu UK, with a major achievement of an internal business case delivery that saved Fujitsu £3mln across a large technology outsourcing contract. I then joined PA Consulting Group, where I spent ~7 years in increasingly senior roles, including leading Technology operating model offering across a team of ~50 people.

My current position is a Senior Manager in PwC Technology, where I help Boards and Senior Management teams of Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 Financial Services companies to re-shape their technology functions, fundamentally changing the way in which they have delivered products and services for years. I and my team do this through the introduction of emerging technologies, growth of technology talent and setting up of an integrated cross-company delivery ecosystem.
