Managing director, 365ITMS
What was the worst job you have ever had?
A labourer in a cement factory.
Which actor would you pick to play you in a movie of your life?
Mark Wahlberg as I often describe myself as his older, fatter, uglier, poorer brother.
What do you do as your party trick?
You'll have to be at a party to find out!
What is your favourite chocolate bar?
I don't eat chocolate; I'm trying to be healthy.
What has been the highlight of your career to date?
Completing my first deal using private equity.
Has 2014 been a good, bad or ugly year?
It has been a good year so far; the move to buying IT-as-a-Service is gathering pace.
How would you explain the IT channel to a stranger without boring them to death?
I would find it difficult to do that; I try not to talk about work to strangers.
Aside from the channel, my dream career would be... a rock star.
What major issues will the channel face in 2015?
The continuing move from on-premise capital purchases to off-premise buying IT-as-a-Service.
