Gordon Weir has more than twenty years of experience in the software business. After being voted Young Engineer of the Year in New Zealand in 1998, he left his position in engineering with the navy to work for a software house in New Jersey, USA. After a year he left for the UK to pursue his interest in working on large-scale software delivery, joining PwC Management Consultancy, followed by IBM, where he worked on numerous integration programs. In 2005 Gordon moved to UBS where he led the delivery of the global clearing and settlement systems for the equities business.
This is where he discovered agility, and realised his passion for creating learning organisations that thrive on change. Since UBS he has implemented significant change at Merrill Lynch, and now has returned to the world of software products with the fintech companies Digital Asset and Ninth Wave in the USA.
