Recipient of John P. Reilly Award
Chief IT Systems Architect
Lester has contributed to TM Forum for the past ten years and exemplified his dedication through his contributions to TM Forum’s Open Digital Architecture (ODA). As a pioneer actively creating and developing the ecosystem known today, he helped the evolution of ODA. Today we have three CSPs running on ODA, which was instrumental to Vodafone’s commitment to ODA. Lester has been an advocate for TMF’s Open API program and as Head of New Technologies and Innovation for Vodafone Digital & IT, his practical implementation knowledge about how to devise and design an open architecture, implement, and govern an open architecture across a global organization, has made a positive impact on the Forum’s strategic direction.
