Leadership-logoAs part of Computing's Tomorrow's IT Leaders campaign, we talk to the UK's top chief information officers (CIOs) to find out their views on the role of IT leaders and how this will change in the post-recession world.

Betfair chief technology officer Tony McAlister moved from the US to the UK to work for the online gambling firm, yet he accepts that keeping IT skills in the UK will be a challenge.
