2003 PROMS-G Prize won by IT director

19 February 2003

The PROMS-G Prize, awarded annually to the candidate with the highest marks in the BCS Examination for Project Management, has been won by Jeremy Fish, IT Director at Misys IFA Services, Europe's largest financial services network.

Jeremy will receive his prize of £500 and a commemorative plaque at the PROMS-G Conference on 10 April at The Inmarsat Centre, London EC1. The subject of the Conference this year is "Getting Better Value from IT Investments" and the keynote speaker, Peter Gershon CBE (Chief Executive of the UK Government's Office of Government Commerce), will present the award.

Previously Jeremy Fish ran the IT operation at Misys International Banking Systems where he implemented several large projects including the UK's largest Professional Services Automation System (PSA) and a Customer Relations Management (CRM) system.

Jeremy's main motivation for sitting the BCS Project Management exams was to formalise his practical experience and to study the subject from a theoretical perspective.

"The BCS exams have greatly assisted my knowledge and will undoubtedly improve my project management skills", said Jeremy. "With so many projects failing to live up to expectations and deliver the desired results, there has never been a more appropriate time for project managers to improve their skills."

Jeremy holds an MBA with distinction from Warwick University Business School. He is also a Chartered Marketer and a qualified PRINCE2 practitioner.
