Managing director, UK
Which tech figurehead do you admire the most?
Bill Gates. His philanthropic work is without equal and he still manages to stay connected and relevant within Microsoft.
What's the biggest challenge facing the industry no-one is talking about yet?
I think some of the vendor partners we have all relied on for many years may not even exist in five years. This will cause all of us to re-evaluate the core of what we do.
If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be?
Margaret Thatcher, Muhammad Ali and Martin Hellawell!
How has 2017 been for you?
Great actually. I think it fair to say that things have turned out much better than we expected they might at the beginning of the year.
What's the most extravagant business lunch you've ever had?
Recently I ordered additional chicken nuggets on top of my Big Mac meal…
Which global city best matches your personality?
I'm known to like the occasional trip to Las Vegas, so let's go with that.
What would be your super-hero power?
I think being invisible would bring some obvious benefits to a father of two young girls.
Complete this sentence. The worst thing about our rivals is… they keep trying to steal our customers!
What makes you nervous?
My children, for all sorts of reasons.
If you could eat one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Roast chicken. I'm pretty sure I have chicken, in one form or another, every day!
