Daniel Ward - Digital Services Manager

Daniel has 16 years’ experience within the wider Freightways group having worked for a number of different businesses in analyst, marketing, operational, and product roles. As Digital Services Manager for TIMG, he runs the management of existing digital business units alongside product innovation. Daniel sees the importance of approaching product innovation with different skills, thinking and ways of working to that of traditional business. Requiring a conscious shift away from the traditional “plan and execute” culture, innovation must be understood as a discovery process where ideas must be able to pivot and change (often dramatically) as assumptions are validated through experimentation. Daniel manages progress via a product portfolio approach to ensure investment is balanced across core, emerging and new products and services.
