Career so far I’ve held technical roles in end user/vendors, followed by various commercial roles in distribution and the channel in general.
Do you care about green IT? Of course. Saving money and saving the planet are a great commercial opportunity.
If you could be in a rock/pop band, which one would it be and who would you be? U2, Bono. Cool but with ethics.
What is the best corporate jolly you have ever been on/taken partners on? One of the Ashes tests this year.
Has 2009 been as bad as everyone said it would be? In general yes, but like most markets it’s based partially on emotion and mood. The more we think we have turned the corner, the more we will.
Have any of your predictions come true this year? Yes a few. There has been some “survival of the fittest” type selection going on, along with the constant fact that people still pay good money for good things.
What do you see as the channel’s biggest challenge in 2010? The same as most years, to retain value and demonstrate its ability to be worth that value.
What is the best part of your day? The end of a successful one: voicemails answered, emails replied to.
