Chairman and Founder, ANS Group

What achievement are you most proud of?

Starting ANS from a back bedroom in 1996.

What has been the biggest change in the channel since you started working in it?

Public cloud and use of mobile devices.

What three things could you not live without?

There is nothing I could not live without apart from clothes, food and water.

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

I don't have one, honestly... OK then I admit it Gary Barlow. I love him.

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?

Admitting to my crush on Gary Barlow.

What do your family think you do all day?

Work very hard.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Anything sweet.

What would be your first act if you were made Prime Minister?

Flat-rate tax system.

Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?

It has been an amazing year. There is continuing growth and the economy is looking good as we look forward. It is nice to see valuations pushing forward too.

If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would you do?

An actor or a pilot.

What major issues will the channel face in 2016?

Continued adjustment to managed services/cloud. Anyone in the traditional reseller mode is going to find it harder and harder if not impossible.
