Experience / Qualifications:

With 29 years’ experience within the IT and communications industry, I feel experience is key to solving any problem and giving the best advice possible. At Central IT, I encourage a more friendly yet highly professional approach to how Central IT deals with its clients. I believe the mould has been broken with Central IT on how stereotypical IT support companies are more commonly portrayed. 

Over the years, I’ve become a Microsoft MCSE certified professional and a Sage50 and Sage Payroll specialist. I’ve acquired vast experience in almost every server and desktop operating system, and everything IT.

With 24 years’ experience within the IT and communications industry, I have gained vast experience about every aspect of IT and IT Support. I have worked at two IT Support companies in my career – doing a similar job within each role, which involved both in house and on-site work ranging from single PC’s to large corporate networks. 

I’ve become a Microsoft MCP certified professional and have experience in almost every server and desktop operating system as well as CCTV and large scale structured network cabling. 

I have been at Central IT since 2007 and worked with Ian (The MD at Central IT) since leaving school. Ian and I have been through many brain teasing situations together (but not 1 of them has beat us). Here at Central IT, I feel that we are a great team.
