Jeremy Lewis joined the University IT service in October 2012 as a programme manager to lead the migration from legacy IT systems to Office 365 for all staff and students. This involved the migration of over 35,000 students and staff to the new technology over a six-month period.
Between 2014 to 2020, Jeremy established and led a programme to improve the physical learning environment for students by the refurbishment of nearly 300 teaching spaces. This brought together academic needs, estate, and IT requirements into a single strategy to deliver a step-change improvement in the quality of teaching space provision.
With the 2020 Covid pandemic enforcing homeworking for most staff, Jeremy created and lead the Better Ways of Working programme which enabled the introduction of blending working and office space rationalisation across most of Professional Services. He is currently leading the development of the Target Operating Model for Professional Services.
After graduating in 1990 from Swansea University with a degree in Electrical and Electronic engineering, Jeremy moved into IT design and project management. He subsequently worked in fifteen organisations prior to Cardiff university, within sectors including: utilities, local government, publishing & financial services.
With a keen interest in governance, Jeremy is currently a trustee of Mind in the Vale of Glamorgan and has held several voluntary board roles: as a governor at two schools and on the board of an arts organisation.
Jeremy has been a member of the University Council since August 2022.
