Who we are
Claire Ruskin has long been part of the Cambridge Phenomenon, starting in chip design and delivering increasingly ambitious technical product developments from Cambridge for a range of clients around the world. She was a Board Director of both Cambridge Consultants and Arthur D Little ten years ago, then moved to PA Consulting Group to combine the art of management consulting with continued technical developments. Claire helped form start-ups including CSR and Alphamosaic of which she was a NXD, and is on the Council of Advisors for Red Gate Software. She is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the IET.
Hilary qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1995. She then went on to act as financial professional in a number of commercial companies, latterly as Finance Director for ITV Digital Interactive. Finally she ran a European Business Division at Walt Disney, before deciding to set up her own business, DXL Consulting.
Hilary has been responsible for financial controls and stewardship of the Network since 2008. In 2010, her role was widened to oversee all day to day operations. In that time she has worked on the launch of the new Recruitment Gateway service and re-design of the Cambridge Network website.
