Join our webinar on Tuesday 10th April at 2pm

Spotlight

Hear from Partners like yourselves and discover how they are thriving with the support of Gamma.

BCR achieves …..

When did you join Gamma? I joined Gamma in June 2007.

What’s your industry ‘hot topic’? PCI compliance – it never ceases to amaze me how many organisations take credit card payments over the phone yet do not have any safeguards against credit card fraud.

What did you do before Gamma? I spent three years working for a small company on the south coast, who became one of Gamma’s first reseller customers. Prior to that, I worked for other carriers – Primus and RSL. I started my telco life as an engineer working for Central Telecom.

Do you have any achievements that you’re proud to tell us about? A couple of years ago I took up cycling and in 2017 I rode 416 miles in four days. With the help of family, friends, colleagues and partners I was able to raise £1,270 for charity. My next challenge is to ride over 450 miles in a similar time frame so I had better start training!

What are your hobbies outside of work? Cycling, Snowboarding, kayaking and generally being outdoors. Also like building stuff and recently built a new office in the garden dubbed the “Wendy House”.

And finally, a little bit about you? I like to think I’m a fairly relaxed person who is keen to get the best out of everything that I do, whether that be at home, work or play.
