New CDIO for CityFibre

Full-fibre network operator CityFibre has announced the appointment of former HIghways England chief digital and information officer Vicky Higgin.

Higgin will join in the newly created position of CDIO which CityFibre said would focus on supporting “the business in its drive to deliver an industry-leading ordering, installation and service management experience for its wholesale customers”.

Prior to her role at Highways England, Higgin worked in various roles at National Grid, most recently as chief information officer and vice president of IT transformation.

Commenting on her new role, Higgin said: “It’s a fantastic time to be joining a company growing at such a phenomenal rate. There is a huge opportunity for CityFibre to put in place an IT framework that future-proofs it for the next decade and offers our customers a level of service they can’t find elsewhere on the market. I am looking forward to working with every team at CityFibre and placing IT enablement at the heart of our future-thinking mindset.”

Last year, CityFibre launched its first 800 Gbps backbone ring as part of its £4bn ‘Gigabit City' investment programme. Once complete, the network will connect CityFibre’s own fibre exchanges and ring-based access networks to leading third party data-centres and points of interconnection.
