About Me

Independent Member

Susanna has over 20 years’ experience in supply chain and logistics in a variety of different roles for blue chip and international firms. As a highly experienced International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) Lead Auditor, she has successfully implemented integrated systems in organisations of all sizes, and across a number of industry sub-sectors, with a particular focus on information security and the burgeoning area of artificial intelligence.

Alongside regular auditing, she is a research academic and reviewer, and her academic research interests are concerned with human-systems interface and overcoming barriers to the successful implementation and use of systems. She teaches part time at Manchester Business School, and she also teaches Lead Auditor courses for an International Register of Certificated Auditors (IRCA) accredited training body.

In her spare time, Susanna volunteers with the Royal Air Forces Association (RAFA) to support forces veterans, and she enjoys playing the saxophone as part of a saxophone orchestra.
