Explain a little about your area of expertise and what you do at Economit

Along with being the founder of Economit, I also work as a Fractional CIO, CISO and DPO for several of our valued clients.

What attracted you to this type of role and how long have you worked in this area?

I’ve always had a passion for IT since I first saw a computer running in the late 1970s, and then owned my first computer in 1981. It was inevitable from an early age that this was going to be my choice of career and I’ve been working in the industry since 1989.

My favourite bit of my job is...

Providing a happy and thriving work environment for the incredible team we have at Economit and the great satisfaction I get from providing consultancy services to our clients. The change we as a team can bring to our clients can be huge for them from day one.

In my spare time, you’ll find me…

Spending time with family. I'm also the head coach for the Great Britain Wushu Team (Chinese Martial Arts).

My first memory of technology was...

Seeing an advert on TV for the Atari 2600 games console.

The best piece of IT advice I’ve ever been given...

Keep it simple...

My top takeaway for clients is...

Treat your corporate data like the crown jewels - and manage it as such!
