Simon Lawford

Systems Engineer

I have worked in the IT industry over the last 30 years, from the ground up as a trainee right through to running my own IT company. As a Systems Engineer, it is great to be able to employ my genuine enthusiasm for different technologies and varied knowledge in supporting our client base.

My experience and values

Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to work on a number of interesting projects, including installing systems throughout the UK for the likes of “The Royal Court of Justice”, “The Lord Chancellors Department”, “QVC shopping channel” and “Standard Charter Bank”.

I love a challenge and enjoy helping people. My approach is always to understand how an organisation works first and then do the necessary research and make recommendations based on my findings. Sometimes I have been known to walk away from a prospective client and say “What you have in place is better than anything I can recommend at the moment”, if I can’t find a solution that is going to be more effective, cost-efficient and scalable for the future then why change it.

Life outside Breakwater

Outside of work I spend a lot of time fishing and boating on the Norfolk Broads, as well as enjoying quality time with my family. I also love travelling and have visited India, Thailand, Australia and Singapore to name a few.
