What I do at Q2Q:

I head up the IT support team.

On a daily basis I work on resolving IT issues for our clients. My skill set tends to adapt according to the current needs of our customers, from solving basic matters like fixing a printer through to more complex server infrastructure deployment. I am also often out on site visiting customers that are in need of an IT saviour.

Within the team, I work on the proposals for new and existing customers, and ensure we all work together to implement the solutions we propose.

I enjoy overseeing new projects so that, when clients evolve, we can ensure their growth, office move and/or induction of a new team member, is as seamless as possible from an IT perspective.

I also drive the rest of the team insane with my singing!

Background and Achievements

I joined the Q2Q team when they were part of the I.T. department for the Tulchan Group 14+ years ago. This was my first full-time role straight of out A-levels. I have enjoyed being part of the company and watching it grow from 3 members of staff to a blossoming 10.

I find it hard to pin point specific achievements as one of my values personally is to always exceed your own expectations. My wife would say being a great Dad to my two boys.

A great achievement for me is getting 76 miles to the gallon on the motorway and being able to finally grow stubble.

Hobbies and Interests

I aim to train in Muay Thai twice a week and religiously go to the gym every day I can.

I can juggle and have always wanted to learn knife throwing.

We’re not afraid of a challenge here at Q2Q towers. So, to try and raise some much-needed cash for our friends at St John’s Hospice, we’re taking on the Leeds Total Warrior 12k.

Our very own Damien Gelder, Harrison Burke, and Phil Irwin will join scores of other runners to tackle one of the most punishing races in the UK.

The 12-kilometre dash through Bramham Park will see us face off against 10 tonnes of ice, 100 tonnes of mud and 25 punishing obstacles which come equipped with fear-inducing names such as ‘Human BBQ’, ’The Plunge’ and ‘The Shocker.’

We can’t wait!

No matter how many hours it takes to get the mud out of our hair, or for the bruises on our shins to fade, it will be worth it when we hand over our donation to the fantastic folks at St John’s hospice.

This local charity has been providing palliative care for a wide range of life-shortening conditions in North Lancashire and the South Lakes since 1986.

The people there have touched many people’s lives – including friends and relatives of Q2Q – and we would love to raise £500 (or more) to help them continue their incredible work. If you’d like to support the team’s efforts, click here to donate.

Good luck guys!
