It was announced today that Jacqueline de Rojas, who last week was named as the most influential woman in UK IT, has been appointed as President of the techUK Board.

Jacqueline, an international executive at mobile workspaces company Citrix, has been employed throughout her career by global blue-chip software companies and holds a number of board and advisory positions. She currently serves as a non-executive director on the board at Home Retail Group PLC, is a board advisor at Digital Leaders and is lending her support to the technology group of the 30% Club.

Away from her day-to-day role at Citrix, Jacqueline has held the role of deputy president and board champion for women on the board of techUK for the last two years, and has used this role to leverage resources in the technology industry to support her manifesto for women; a cause that is close to her heart.

Julian David, CEO of techUK commented, “We’re delighted to welcome Jacqueline to her new role as President of the techUK main board. Her passion and enthusiasm for tech will be of enormous value to techUK and the whole industry.”
