Graeme Boddy, Vice President of Information Services and Business Applications at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina
Graeme was born in Nelson in Lancashire, England. He and his family spent most of their life traveling the world with his father who was in the R.A.F. After traveling through Europe, Graeme took a temporary job as a Computer Operator in 1978 to build funds to attend college. He quickly found himself in the computer boom of the late 1970’s and early 1980’s and after programming in COBOL & RPG on large number of Computer Systems found himself in management.
Graeme has lead teams in many countries, with different language and cultures. He is committed to building diverse teams and providing an environment of growth.
Having built many systems as a programmer, analyst and designer, and seeing the less than stellar impact that poorly designed systems have had upon the poor users upon which they were foisted, Graeme has a new found respect for usability and its practitioners.
