Hugh Ivory

Managing Director: Business Operations and Corporate Governance

Hugh Ivory is a Director of Fimatix, with primary responsibility for Business Operations and Corporate Governance.  Hugh was a Co-Founder of Agilesphere in 2013.

Hugh has over 35 years experience working in and for Public & Private Sector organisations.  He spent twenty years leading software development teams and change management at Allied Irish Bank.  The need to create multi-disciplined, collaborative teams to build customer-facing services led Hugh to get involved in the early Agile movement in the late 90’s.

Since 2000, Hugh has founded and run a number of Agile-focused consultancies, in Dublin and then at Agilesphere in London with Jeremy. Hugh was a director of the Agile Business Consortium from 2006 to 2009.  Hugh has worked in the Transformation Team at UK Government Digital Service, and has led Digital Service Delivery engagements across a number of Government clients.  Hugh has led the creation and continuous development of the Business Operations and Governance framework that enables Fimatix to be the client-centric, adaptive organisation that it is today.

Hugh is a husband to Anne and a Dad to Ruth, Claire and David, and a significant human to Toby (a confusion of labrador and collie). When not working at Fimatix, Hugh is a keen cyclist and hiker.
