In his career Chris has delivered several IT transformation and business platform renewal initiatives for a number of diverse and established business entities across banking and finance, logistics and telecoms.
Chris holds an MSc in Computing Science, and completed his MBA in 2012. In his spare time, he’s an avid software coder and technology enthusiast.
Rob has a wealth of experience developing enterprise scale solutions that are deployed at major payment, telco and financial institutions around the world.
He is a strong proponent of Test Driven Development and Agile methodologies as tools for delivering first-class software.
Rob holds an MSc in Computer Systems. When not working he enjoys spending time with his young family, as well as playing or watching football.
Following the successful completion of a BSc degree in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at Southampton University, Simon has accrued over 12 years of professional experience in information systems engineering and consultancy, having worked in the academic, engineering, defence, finance and telecoms sectors.
He has previously held successful software engineering positions at Oxford University, QinetiQ and SmartStream Technologies. More recently he has been involved in delivering sophisticated solutions for many leading organisations, including the likes of Visa, HSBC, Citi and Vodafone.
