ISS UK & Ireland appoints new Chief Information Officer

“Leanne Lynch, Chief Information Officer, ISS UK & Ireland”
ISS UK & Ireland has announced the appointment of Leanne Lynch as Chief Information Officer.

The appointment follows a rigorous search process, which focused on identifying a candidate with the skills and experience needed to deliver ISS’s ambition to be a technology leader in the industry and to drive Group CIDO Markus Sontheimer’s global technology strategy in the UK and Ireland.

As Chief Information Officer, Lynch will have a remit to deliver technology solutions that support, connect and protect ISS, its people and clients.

This will include delivering best-in-class tools to support the more than 30,000 colleagues that work across the UK&I region, aiding better communication with front-line employees, and enabling higher productivity and efficiency across the business. And, with significant experience in cyber defence — most recently at London Heathrow, Europe’s busiest airport — Lynch will ensure that security remains at the top of the business agenda to safeguard both ISS and its clients.

Leanne Lynch said of her appointment: “I am delighted to be joining ISS during this exciting era of rapid technological evolution.

“Working in a people-oriented company like ISS is energising because the success of technology hinges on its adoption by individuals — therefore, a key part of this role will be obtaining the appropriate capabilities for our organisation. I am excited to explore ways that technology can propel us to success within a dynamic and competitive market, but a key goal of mine will be to find the equilibrium between leveraging the potential of our existing technologies and prudently investing in emerging solutions that align with our needs — all while upholding the bedrock of resilience.”

Liz Benison, Chief Executive Officer at ISS UK&I, added by saying: “This appointment heralds a new era for our business, putting ourselves on the front foot of technology and innovation in our industry. I am thrilled to be having someone with Leanne’s experience and solutions-driven mindset join our business in a key role at this pivotal time in the OneISS transformation, and I am certain she will make a significant positive impact both for the region as well as the wider business.”
