Nigel Harris

Director & Founder

Director and founder member of the company. Particular responsibility these days for day to management of the Company and Client and Supplier relationships. Most definitely not an IT person, “I’m really thankful to be surrounded by such a good team of geeks who do know what they are doing.”

Nowadays, outside of work, enjoys travel and eating out, preferably combining both and also the company of his gorgeous grandkids. Oh, and also is a life long supporter of Gillingham Football Club, but hasn’t allowed that to adversely affect his life.

A star developer working mainly on the Hub.

Interested in loads of things, including reading, dancing, swimming and tri-athalons.

He has played a major role in developing and enhancing the core applications and services since that time and now, as a Director of the company, manages some of our major Client, Supplier and Partner relationships as well as getting heavily involved in new business generation and product development.
