John Dowthwaite
Over my career I’ve worked in most industry sectors including banking, insurance, public sector, media and manufacturing.

My client work has included everything from major programme implementations to short reviews and ongoing advisory services.

Outside of work I am still actively involved with Durham University and I’m a reasonably fanatical supporter of a certain North East football team, which one I will be silent on just in case you are reading this as a prospective client and you support the other lot.

Previous experience

I graduated from the University of Durham with a degree in Physics and went on to do a PhD in Astrophysics at the same place which I received in 1987. I started as a systems developer for IBM but moved to consultancy in the early 1990’s. I joined DMW in 1992 having previously worked for IBM, PA Consulting and Andersen Consulting (Accenture). I was appointed to the Board in 1996.
