What I did next - Topping the CIO 100 list with Halfords

31 March 2016

For one Warwick Business School alumna, topping the CIO 100 list is as much about trailblazing for her gender in a male dominated sector as it is a personal achievement.

Anna Barsby, who studied her MBA at WBS, is Chief Information Officer at Halfords.

She was listed top of the CIO 100: the first female to top the list.

“I hope it encourages more girls to go into IT,” she says.

Halfords is a leading retailer in automotive and cycling as well as auto repair.

Anna looks after everything IT and in our latest ‘What I did next’ video describes what excites her most about her role.

“Working in IT – it is an interesting time – you have to stay relevant, have to stay current.  Technology is moving at such a massive pace, it’s so exciting to be a part of,” Anna adds.

“What I learned most during my undergraduate and MBA study at Warwick was that I have the confidence the ability to think I can do anything."
