I’m a great believer in getting to know each business we work with to discover how we can help drive their operation forwards, building a solid platform for the future. When you combine this focus on client relations with all the components required to create an efficient IT system then I believe you really get results and efficiency from your investment.

I make sure Breakwater is a dynamic place to work and a growing business that embraces new technologies, whilst keeping in mind the ‘best fit’ for each client. I see Breakwater as an exceptional IT provider, with a focused client offering that really powers a business and reduces risk in this ever-changing world.

My experience and values

I have been working in the IT profession for over 19 years, I have a genuine interest in my chosen career and a desire to keep on learning – which is something that the shifting nature of IT allows you to do! I’m an advocator of new technologies and innovation that can produce genuine results and I actively promote training and education within Breakwater.

Life outside Breakwater

I have been known to take part in challenging sporting events outside the office, such as marathons and 100 mile cycle rides and most recently the odd foray into Triathlons. When I’m not wearing lycra I can be seen running after my young daughter, a grueling sport of its very own.
