Information and Communications Technology is business critical. Without stable, reliable and competitively priced systems and solutions, a company cannot succeed.

I have seen this with my own eyes during my 20 years’ experience in the ICT industry. I’ve grown businesses from nothing, and driven others to reach a turnover of tens of millions. I therefore understand inside-out the daily technology and telecoms issues business owners face.

A poacher-turned-gamekeeper, I’ve sold to clients; now I am on their side as Director of Alpha Beta Solutions.
