Neil Burton

Managing Director

Neil is a 22 year veteran of IT solution sales, 19 years of which have been spent in leadership roles.

He's seen IT evolve from the small, yet less straight forward computing environments and the nascent internet of the 90s, to the complex global network infrastructures and cloud-delivered services of today.

As he says: “Along with this evolution has come a myriad of problems in the management and security of networks.  Solving those problems is our business."

Technical Services

With over 20 years’ technical IT experience, Paul is our trouble-shooter and problem-solver. With such a wealth of experience and expertise, even our technology partners ask him for advice… about their own technology!

When he started in IT, we used modems to dial up and his desktop was running Windows 3, a far cry from today’s increasingly complex network environments, where regulation, risk and compliance have become the most pressing challenges.
