Introduction

I’m not in the IT industry because I love computers. I’m in IT because I like helping people and IT is something I understand and find logical. Many people around me struggled with IT and I just fixed it for them. This lead on to my Business & Information degree and while I was studying I also took an adult and further education course and began teaching Internet Technologies at night school. I spent a few years working for a local college and helped them to become a Technology Academy before starting my career in IT Managed Services. Having helped hundreds of businesses from local SMBs to global enterprises with various IT projects, I now find myself as the Operations Manager at PCS where I look after our partner relationships, marketing and assist with new product engagements together with understanding IT pressures on our customer’s business and what we need to do for them. 

Personal Achievement

My 2 sons and incredible wife. I love my family life and seeing my boys grow and develop daily.

 PCS are a big family orientated business and love our culture of getting home on an evening, enjoying our families and coming back the next day, recharged and feeling supported both at home and work.

My number one favourite pass time is skiing and snowboarding.
