Ewan Withers - Head of Technology Architecture
Why did you choose to join Icon?
My decision was based on the breadth of interesting technical work across a range of FS clients.
What have been your key achievements at Icon?
Saving a UK High Street Bank a large capital outlay by performance engineering their payments engine to continue to run and scale on its existing hardware. Plus, defining an architecture strategy for a Global Bank’s commercial business which is not only still being executed, but was also a significant boost for Icon’s reputation with the customer.
What drives you in your work?
I can’t stand waste or inefficiency – so helping our customers build simpler and cheaper solutions is a big part.
