Mr G Bouwer

Head of Digital Learning

I am a highly experienced, commercially-focused Information Technology business leader with a wealth of high end professional expertise and technical knowledge; an individual with strong leadership and consensus building skills with expert man management abilities, and a proven track record of delivering results during every stage of the business life-cycle – or that’s what my LinkedIn profile says! 

I have a strong background in both the corporate and education sectors, and join St Joseph’s from a school where I was the Head of ICT and Computing and the Head of Digital Strategy.  I believe that the goal of technology should be that you don’t notice it’s there – it should simply work seamlessly to deliver a great experience, whether in the classroom or the boardroom.

In my spare time I love being outdoors and am a competitive sportsman; when river rowing I competed at Henley for Reading Rowing Club, when coastal rowing I, as Club Captain, took Eastbourne Rowing Club to their most successful season in 100 years. In addition, I enjoy golf, crossfit and cycling and am an amateur beekeeper.
