John graduated In Geology from Manchester University in 1985, and the early part of his career was in Oil Exploration. A career change has lead to John working in IT within the Financial Services market for the last 23 years.
John has over that time gained wide experience of customer focused project delivery roles working for Sirius Solutions, Crisp Computing, The Exchange, Marlborough Stirling, and joined Redland in 2004.
John’s early experience was as a Training Officer, Support Analyst, and Product Marketing Executive however his primary roles have been as a Senior Business Consultant leading analysis and test teams and supporting Project Management. John has an excellent track record of successful delivery into various market sectors including General Insurance & IFA back Office, Point Of Sale Systems, Contact Centre, IFA Network Administration and Quotation portals.
Since joining Redland John has been primarily responsible for the initial design, scope and on-going functional development of the Insight TC product whilst also being heavily involved in the implementations of the product. Recently, John has moved into Business Development to use his product knowledge to build sales.
Outside of work John used to be a keen and able squash player, and footballer and today enjoys ‘DIY’, the Cinema, Reading, and threatens to regenerate his passion for sport by dusting down his Golf Clubs!
His biggest passions however have always been ‘Cars and Guitars’, consequently John can often be in dirty overalls with a spanner in his hand ‘tending to his beloved Classic Car, or toting his equally adored Fender Stratocaster and ‘cutting some hot licks’ with his local rock band.
