Miriam Murphy

Northern EMEA senior vice president for Avnet

Career history: SVP Enterprise Busines Group EMEA; VP IBM business unit EMEA at Avnet; VP operations EMEA at Avnet.

Measure of influence: Responsible for $1.5bn revenue and a team of more than 400 staff.

Activities to advance women in tech: Recently supported a Lenovo Women in IT EMEA event, sharing experiences and answering questions on the channel environment which was broadcast across the entire Lenovo EMEA community.

How significant an issue do you see the lack of women in the UK IT channel?
I would love to see the day when we did not even have to discuss gender imbalance because there is no longer one of note. The business is evolving, perhaps too slowly, however, and it is every leader's responsibility, whatever gender, to make our work environments appealing and welcoming for new generations.
