Technical Operations Manager
Tom’s been working in IT support since 1993 and has seen a lot of changes in his time. His experience has been a key factor in developing help4IT’s ‘total IT support’ ethos and our helpdesk procedures. In his spare time, Tom likes to keep himself away from technology, playing in live poker tournaments and doing quizzes – his team came sixth in the 2015 National Pub Quiz league final! Tom keeps threatening to renew his hang-glider pilot’s licence one of these days but he’s probably more likely to just get a dog for the exercise.
New Business Development
Richard has joined the help4it team as our new business development manager. He has over 15 years of experience in the IT industry with an ever growing personal contact network. Richard holds a season ticket for a North London, premiership football team which currently brings him little enjoyment! He is heavily addicted to buying vinyl and adding it to his record collection, which he’s been building since he was a young boy.
