Gareth Evans

Gareth has over 15 years experience in the IT industry, including over a decade in London where he first put his degree in economics to use as a software developer. He gained experience in the banking industry on numerous large IT projects from front office investment banking to wholesale banking compliance as both a developer and team leader. During his time in the UK Gareth also gained an MSc in computing science including a thesis on evolutionary algorithms. His last UK role as an Agile Software Coach at BBCWW allowed him to specialise in Kanban and Lean whilst participating in a highly successful case study as a member of the first team at BBCWW (and BBC) to transition to Kanban: "I believe it will be one of the most significant papers in Software Engineering this decade." - David Anderson. Gareth returned to New Zealand in 2009 where he has been working for Assurity as the Kanban Practice Lead. He has enjoyed bringing successful economic outcomes to clients using Agile and Lean principles combined with solid technical practices that support continuous delivery.
