With almost 20 years’ experience in delivering mission critical digital solutions, chief technology officer Dominic Mills heads up Zone’s 100-plus strong team of technologists. Dominic specialises in leveraging technology to promote tangible business development, having, for example, helped Gatwick Airport turn its website from mere information hub into a genuine revenue generator and South West Trains initiate a paradigm shift in the ticket-purchasing experience for its passengers. The application of mobile technologies, and their potential to provide a step-change in utility to users, is a particular passion of Dominic’s, and he has written extensively on the subject for the likes of Campaign magazine and CMO.com After starting his career at a global IT player, Dominic founded Auros, a digital agency specialising in tech build, in 2001. His start-up built a reputation for delivering large-scale, technically complex digital projects for clients such as the NHS, Swinton Insurance and Virgin Media Business. Auros was acquired by Zone in 2013, leading to Dominic becoming a Zone business partner and joining the executive team.
Strange but true:
Dominic once met and had dinner with President Mikhail Gorbachev in a Bedouin tent near Marrakesh.
