Chairman, Centerprise International

What achievement are you most proud of?

I am proud of the commitment, trust, and belief of management and employees at Centerprise.

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

The IT industry is very exciting as no two days are the same. The biggest change and most exciting is the re-emergence of custom build and configure hardware by the channel.

What three things could you not live without?

1. Passion for the industry. 2. Excitement; it is never dull. 3. Winning.

What has been your most embarrassing moment so far?

I don't embarrass easily.

What do your family think you do all day?

You have to ask my family as I am sure they will give different answer to mine.

Who is your ultimate celeb crush?

Anyone that is impressive when they speak.

What is your guilty pleasure?

I am well known to hold the record for the number of times I gave up smoking.

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

We have so many councils and it is time to get efficiency and understand the real value they offer and why do we need so many.

Has 2015 been a good, bad or ugly year?

2015 has been a great year for Centerprise as we started to expand our marketing and sales into new and exciting sectors offering new services and solutions.

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

I would retire.

What major issues will the channel face in 2016?

To provide efficient annuity services, and to understand and cope with cloud services.
