Managing director, Kelway

What achievement are you most proud of?

I think it's hard to look past building the company over 17 years and coming together with CDW.

What three things could you not live without?

My phone, my spare phone and my battery for my phone - I have to be connected!

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?

Being on this list.

What do your family think you do all day?

Physically make computers!

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

Alan Shearer.

What is your guilty pleasure?

Probably the dance music I spend half my life listening to.

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

Deport Mike Ashley.

Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?

Good for us, especially now as part of the world's largest VAR.
If you didn't work in the IT channel, what would you do?
Hopefully be playing golf somewhere.

What major issues will the channel face in 2016?

I think people are going to see DC infrastructure revenues shrink dramatically in light of migration to cloud and managed services models - it is a real issue.
