Charlotte Light, Chief Technology Officer at the Aztec Group, has been named in Computer Weekly’s list of the top ‘50 Most Influential Women in UK IT’.
Each year, Computer Weekly recognises 50 inspirational women who are role models for diversity and success in technology.
Charlotte joined the Group in 2020 after spending four years as Chief Information Officer at Channel 4. In her role at Aztec, she drives the continued development of the IT team and leads its technology transformation agenda.
Bringing a breadth and depth of experience to her role, Charlotte previously led technology teams in multiple industries including media, retail and supply chain, as well as directly in the technology sector.
Commenting on the news, Charlotte said: “It’s a genuine honour to be recognised alongside my female peers working in technology in the UK. At Aztec, we’re acutely aware of the extent to which tech is transforming our industry and the ways we work with, and provide services to, our clients. That’s why I always keep one question in mind: how can we use technology to give our clients, and our own people, a consistently great experience?
“Working with my brilliant team, I’m proud that we actively listen to our clients and our people to ensure that we’re always looking for new and better ways to meet that ambition.
“I also hope that recognition such as this highlights to the next generation of women not only that they can succeed in tech, but that they can play a key role in shaping the future of their companies and the industry in years to come.”
Aztec Group Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Edward Moore, said: “As the leader of our technology team and a member of the Group’s Executive Board, Charlotte makes an outstanding contribution to the leadership and management of our business. Not just in driving our technology agenda, but also in shaping what the future of the Aztec Group will look like.
“Charlotte is a true role model to others and we’re proud to see her contribution recognised in this way.”
