Mike Norris

The latest issue of Executive Perspective features Mike Norris, CEO of Computacenter plc (LON:CCC), a leading European independent provider of IT infrastructure services with Group revenues of over £2.5 billion.

With over 33 years of experience in the IT industry, Mike examines how Computacenter has adapted to changes in the landscape to make the company successful in the long run, such as achieving sustained organic growth and looking to strategic M&A. He also discusses his personal M&A philosophy — where acquisitions should be more than just about people — and explains his approach to developing services to address the intricacies of the large enterprise segment.

In addition to offering his opinion on tech’s pivot toward solutions and the full stack, Mike explores how “macroeconomic change drives investment in IT” and which effects Brexit potentially has on his company. Closing his interview by stating, “This is a marathon, not a sprint,” Mike shares his astute advice that has helped sustain him for the past three decades.
