Our Team

Meet our Executive Team

As MD, I welcome all customers to touch base with me to explain what their business problems are. My passion is finding the right technology solutions to meet your needs and I believe quality is better than quantity.  I am enthused by customer engagement and consider myself an all-round good guy and no better-than-average golfer. The staff affectionately call me the P-unit (or the dark lord depending on my mood).

Phil Read

Managing Director 

Do not fiddle with my spreadsheets. I aim to steer the company on the best, yet prudent financial course to ensure that that you receive the very best from our finance team. We aim to offer courteous and effective cash management and accounts management services to ensure you are well served. But don’t touch my spreadsheets. You won’t like me when I’m angry!

Paul Merchant

Finance Director

My aim is to give our customers the service, support and help they require. Given the rate that technology has changed in our industry recently, it’s important you have a person, team and company to turn to, that always have the answer to your problems and can help you overcome those challenges. That’s certainly where we excel! Away from work? You’ll find me either walking my two dogs, with family and friends, playing football or looking for that next holiday to fly out to.

Nathan Brownsword

Sales Director

I love Technology, gadgets, gizmos, software, hardware and pretty much anything else technically interesting?! That passion is what drives me to ensure that our team of engineers are on the ball and delivering the best service in the most productive way possible every day. Our engineers love engineering, designers love designing, and geeks love geeking out. If you have an idea, problem or request I will be more than happy, using Jedi mind tricks, to come up with the most effective solution in the galaxy.

Robin Beales

Technical Director

I care about your customer experience and the service you receive. I aim to ensure the operations, technical support and customer service teams deliver an excellent service to you and always strive to do our best. I would love to hear from you, as your opinion matters and I am always keen to hear ways that we can improve our service. Without you, our customers, our business has no heart and a happy heart is a happy soul.
