Since the initial launch of Breakwater in 2005, I have always wanted to create a forward-thinking IT Services provider that utilises technology to help underpin the future growth of companies.

Breakwater is now working with some of the best-known names in the region, across a wide variety of sectors and we all share a common vision of wanting to develop efficient, productive and scalable businesses.
My experience and values
I have always enjoyed watching businesses grow, right from the initial concept through to maturity with all the inevitable twists and turns along the way. These days, it is remarkable to see how quickly a company can “scale” and the right technological infrastructure now plays a large part in this.
I was the original founder of the Teletext based travel agency, Worldwide Travel – which grew from a start-up business into a national company with an annual turnover of over £73 million. I eventually sold the business into the Virgin group, where I continued as a Virgin Company Managing Director for 5 years.
It was after my time at Worldwide Travel that I saw a gap in the market for a client-focused IT services provider – a company that would provide effective, integrated solutions to allow other businesses to grow without any limitations.
I was one of the founder judges for the EDP50, a long-term initiative by the Eastern Daily Press to highlight and track rising entrepreneurs in the East Anglia region. Many of these young companies have gone on to be clients of Breakwater and it is working with some of these rising “stars of the future” that brings me the most pleasure.
Life outside Breakwater
In my spare time I enjoy reading, travelling, (especially to Australia, where my wife is from) the cinema, good food and wine, cycling and regularly playing tennis. I am also a Trustee of several local charities.
