Steve

Founder & Managing Director

 

As well as the original founder, I am also the chief engineer responsible for technical vision, strategy, deployment and consultancy to our customer base. I have been an I.T. engineer for more than 37 years mainly helping FMCG and blue chip clients.

 

I have a diploma in business management and a degree in computer science. I was one of the first UK Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers (MCSE) for Server 2000. I've worked in the computer industry since 1982. My career started as a software apprentice whilst Microsoft was still developing the original version of Windows.

 

I don't make the coffee!

Chris

Technical Director

I previously worked as a computer engineer at Newark Computer Centre. I transferred to Southwell in 2010 and soon became a Director. I now look after most of the support tasks and really enjoy the call-out and installation jobs. My background is mainly IT support within large and busy industrial sites, so I don't tend to get stressed much these days.

I avoid making the coffee if I can!

Cathy-ann

Financial Director

 

I manage the front of house operations including bookings, communication, invoicing, quoting, purchasing, product selection and running the retail store.

 

 

Basically I keep it all together and running smoothly while the boys do their geeky backroom things.

 

I pretty much make all the coffee!

Presently at sixth form doing A-levels before moving on to university. I help out in the shop on Saturdays. When time permits I also do admin support tasks such as bookkeeping, worksheet processing and restocking.

 

Isn't coffee a drink for old people?
