Tell us something most people won't know about you

I used to play football semi-professionally.

What has been your highlight of 2018 so far?

Growing the team and finding some amazing talent that will enable us to achieve our next period of significant growth.

Who would play you in the film of your life?

Leonardo DiCaprio.

Which tech firm (other than your own!) do you most admire?

Cisco. It has had to adapt and drastically shift its business model from a hardware to a software focused one. This is a huge shift and over the past 12 months we have started to see the benefits of that.

What is your guiltiest pleasure?

Watches.

What is the most irritating tech buzzphrase of 2018?

‘The cloud', because it's been a buzzword for as long as I can remember, and everyone has their own understanding of it.

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

Lower taxes and promote entrepreneurship.

What's the biggest untapped opportunity facing the channel?

Providing managed service offerings around cloud-based vendor propositions.

What is your most treasured possession?

My Chelsea season ticket.

What do your family think you do all day?

Sell computers and entertain clients.

Who has been your mentor in business?

My dad. I've been lucky enough to work for and learn from him over the years.
