Our People: Alison Johnstone

Alison joined NCR Edinburgh Digital Insights team in November 2015 as a Programme Manager.

She studied Software Engineering at the University of Stirling before taking up various software based roles that led to technical team leading. This was followed by a move into project then programme management which allowed her to be involved in customer integrations, product delivery, bank integration work and business transformation efforts. Belonging to a PMO allows her love of lists and plans to be nurtured without them all requiring execution by her long-suffering husband.

Outside of work, she has a love/hate relationship with running (really quite slowly) and coastal rowing in St Ayles Skiffs (she’d like to think really quite quickly). Alison does like a challenge, and the most recent effort being completion of her first Tough Mudder event; whether there will be another will remain under wraps for now.
