I was the first employee at Really Simple Systems, joining on a part time basis in 2006 handling the sales side of the business, back when we worked from John Paterson’s home! We’ve come along way since then but it was a fun time.
Born in Manchester, UK, I started my sales career with IBM before moving south to their headquarters in Hampshire. I spent 11 years with IBM in corporate sales and then made the move to an IBM reseller, joining as Sales Manager running a team of 6 people. The move to Really Simple Systems was a complete change from the corporate scene I had become used to. No big company politics and bureaucracy which has been very refreshing and I’m still here!
When I’m not in the office I enjoy the big outdoors – I live in the countryside so go out walking whenever I get the chance. I regularly play golf with my friends and play tennis in the summer months. I am also a keen skier and holiday in the Alps each year. I watch most sport and have a long suffering allegiance to Manchester City Football Club since long before they were rich and successful!
