The Guys

 

 

Nick – The Boss. Enjoys slaying orcs online, fiddling with fish, and writing excruciatingly bad poetry – not as bad as Vogons, but close. He tends to vanish when the Ashes start. Or any cricket, really. The serious stuff…

Nick has owned run the company for something like 20 years, and focuses on IT strategy. He has advised Jack Straw, Heston Blumenthal, Alice Perkins, Severn Trent, MJ Mapp, Richie Benaud, and Philip Mould. He specializes in Exchange scripting and firewall security. In his current position as Chairman, he keeps a close eye on strategy.

 

 

Rodolphe – The Frenchman. Something of a latecomer to unleashing his inner geek, he is getting better at playing Game of Thrones. Rodolphe particularly enjoys jokes about the redness of his nose at Christmas time. And scuba diving. The rest of the year…

With a background in Management and Sales, Rodolphe actually started at Officeanyplace in front-line support. As Managing Director of the company, he is quite happy for it to be said that anything that happens is his fault.

Ashley – The Organized One. Ashley spends her time playing Minesweeper, and shopping for Uggs. She supports Chelsea. When she’s not on Facebook…

She has been with the company for 8 years, and has the daunting task of keeping the engineers organized, so that they do what the client wants when they want it, rather than chasing their pet projects. She also keeps a firm hand on the company purse.

Adrian – The Musician. Wants to retire to Dorset, where he will probably form an alternate rock band.. His ideal job is one that involves him shut in a room full of servers, never having to talk to another human. When the music stops…

Adrian has been in IT for 35 years. From a programming background, he now focuses on database management and back-end systems, such as SCVMM, backup/CDP, and app virtualization.

Simon – The Joker. Simon is the one who will wrap up your monitor, keyboard, and mouse on your birthday. Really tightly. He prefers to spend his work day playing Golf off a 9 handicap. When he really must work…

Simon has been with Officeanyplace for 9 years. He specializes in supporting mobile devices and terminal services and coordinates the work of the first level helpdesk team.
