Stuart Sumner is editorial director of Computing, Delta and The Inquirer, where he is responsible for all editorial content across all three brands.
Stuart has been editor of Computing since 2012. In that time he has transformed the brand from being print-reliant to a multi-channel brand encompassing face-to-face and digital events, focusing on delivering quality, in-depth information to UK and European technology leaders.
He chairs Computing’s events portfolio, including technology-focused conferences Cloud & Infrastructure, Cyber Security and DevOps, and the more strategic events including the Women in Tech Festival, and IT Leaders Festival. He also oversees Computing’s awards programme, including the UK IT Industry Awards – the largest of its kind in Europe.
Stuart founded and created Delta in 2017, recruiting a team of analysts and a steering committee of 30 of the UK’s top CIOs to help create a new market intelligence service for the modern era. Delta formally launched in March 2019 as Europe’s first truly independent service of its kind, and has quickly grown both in terms of subscribers, and the breadth of its content. He is a published author, and a regular technology pundit on TV and radio.
He is a script writer in his spare time, and has had two series of his sitcom 'Space Hacks' produced by BBC radio.
