Claire Jacques is Head of Operations at Giacom World Networks, recently named Yorkshire’s fastest-growing company and winner of Fastest Growing Tech Business at the Hull and Humber Tech Awards last year.
Hull-born and bred, Claire has over 20 years’ experience in the IT industry and was formerly the Managing Director of Intrasource, a role she achieved whilst still in her 30s. Her energy and determination to succeed have seen her rise quickly to her current position at Giacom after starting there only 19 months ago as Operations Manager.
Passionate about IT and delivering a great service, Claire believes there needs to be more women in the Tech industry.
“Living and working in Hull has absolutely shaped who I am today. There are fantastic opportunities and rewarding careers for women in IT – and I want to see more women in tech at every level from support desks to senior management. There are no gender barriers here. Women and men are equal in this industry.”
