Chief executive, OISG Group
What achievement are you most proud of?
Genuinely becoming chief executive of OISG.
What has been the biggest change in the channel since you started working in it?
Nothing, it's exactly the same, just with different jargon and maybe a touch more professional!
What three things could you not live without?
1. Hailo App as it helps navigate through London in the quickest way possible. 2. Amazon App as you can purchase literally anything on the move. 3. I've just packed up the cigs so my Vape.
What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?
A very amusing story (more for the pub), but it involved hospital, trainee nurses, ultra sound and something looking a lot smaller than it ever has done.
What do your family think you do all day?
"Sell IT stuff", whatever that means!
Who is your ultimate celeb crush?
Last season, Harry Kane. This season, not so much.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Clash of Clans.
What would be your first act if you were made Prime Minister?
Look into what's commonly referred to as the surveillance state; what information on individuals do we store and why, when or what is it used for.
Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?
Good, because I have been to Ibiza more times than I probably should have; bad because a house fell on my car; ugly every time I came back from Ibiza.
If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would you do?
Run my own business in the hospitality arena so a restaurant/bar, more than likely.
What major issues will the channel face in 2016?
I believe there will be further vendor M&A activity which will present both challenges and opportunities.
