Sales director, QuantiQ
What is your greatest career move to date?
This one, clearly. What is top of your bucket list? A Lions tour to South Africa and an England versus South Africa Test match in Cape Town.
What has changed most since you started working in the channel?
Very little has changed, from the point of view that there is still an endless stream of easy-to-win high-margin projects from customers desperate to pay you quickly.
How do you think Brexit is going to affect the channel?
Very little, if at all.
What is your least favourite task during the working day?
Commuting at rush hour.
If you were an animal, what would you be?
An elephant because I'm fat, strong and have an elephantine memory.
What is your worst habit?
I have too many unpleasant personal traits to publicise.
How has 2016 been for you?
Awesome as I had five months off over the summer.
If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would be your dream career?
An England cricketer in all forms of the game: money, travel and perpetual days in the sun.
What major issues will the channel face in 2017?
If I knew that I'd have solved them.
