My Sordid Past:

I have extensive knowledge of the Enterprise IT Industry, its various business models and the routes to market used. I’m perennially popular with sales as I fix problematic foundations, then engineer consistently target-busting performance, both through a direct salesforce and via third party distribution channels. An experienced Senior Manager, I nevertheless retain up-to-date Cloud, Linux, Windows, Mac and iOS technical knowledge.
