Endorsements

‘Immediately before Dave joined the business, the IT infrastructure, software, and people were completely broken. (The worst I’ve ever seen in my career). Dave very quickly got to grips with the business and created a strategic roadmap which was easy to understand and follow. This roadmap, coupled with Dave getting the right resources and projects in place, quickly turned the performance of the IT function and systems around. He is a highly-skilled, top-level operator, with a wealth of knowledge and industry contacts, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I really hope we get to work together again in the future’ – Dean Thomas, Managing Director (Aluminium Division), Customade Group.

‘Adrian is someone who I’d highly recommend. His ability to come into an organisation, add instant value and challenge ways of thinking for the good of the organisation is second to none. Operational efficiency paired with IT excellence – it’s refreshing and very value adding.
A great guy, always open to sharing his knowledge and experience’ – Daniel Critchley, COO, Conquip Engineering Group.

‘Alex helped our business through a busy period of IT change, particularly around a server hosting RFP and implementation, IT security and process improvement whilst we were in-between IT Support Managers, and he did so with great professionalism and integrity, providing much needed experience and oversight. I would recommend Alex to any business who is facing some IT change and is looking for a safe pair of hands to guide you and manage your teams through this’ – Elliott Peckitt, Director, Smiffys.

‘Dave is great to get on with. He knows how to bring together diverse views and boil them down into an action plan understood by all. Then drive it though to completion. A strategic CTO who provides a great value interim service for companies like ours who couldn’t afford a full time guy of his calibre’ – Mark Sacker, Managing Director, AB Biogas.

‘I would like to take this opportunity to both thank Adrian for the work he has performed at Lindapter, and to recommend him to those of you who may be in need of his services. We at Lindapter do not have an internal IT department, and have been using the services of a 3rd party IT Managed Services Provider. At this stage in our business growth, it was necessary for us to further develop our IT Strategy; re-visit the IT services we require, and initiate an RFP process to review, and if necessary, select a new IT Services Provider that could take us into the future’ – Michael Norris, Managing Director, Lindapter International.

‘Alex has provided a professional and reliable service to Bioenergy Infrastructure Group in his capacity as a fractional CIO. He possesses both a mastery of detail on complex IT issues and the ability to present such matters in a way that is comprehensible to non-IT professionals. We were glad to have his services’ – Elliott Renton, CFO, Bioenergy Group.

Furthermore, Phil built teams that ensured that the improvements made were enduring. An excellent leader, Phil is an asset to any executive team.’
Lewis Wilson, Managing Director, HSBC

‘Dave was my coach for a couple of years during a complex and busy period of growth in my responsibilities and team, acquisitions, pandemics, structure changes, challenging priorities and more. I found his guidance incredibly helpful in adding that differentiating extra 10% value in my output. He spent time getting to know me personally, how I think, where I need help and where I don’t, and tuned his assistance accordingly. Together we worked on stepping up my articulation of issues and resolution options for SBG’s senior executives, refining my prioritisation and ability to focus, considering proactive uses of new technology as well as reacting to business needs, and sharpening my diagnosis of root issues. While under his coaching I saw a tangible step change in the executive team’s understanding and response to key topics in my teams, and a matching improvement in my own ability to challenge my own assumptions, consider alternatives, and present direction with clarity’ Simon Ince, Director of Core Technology, Sky Betting and Gaming’
