Derek formed ESP over 10 years ago as a corporate consultancy offering bespoke communications services to the Retail, Construction and Financial Services sectors.
The 25 year background in telephony, BT and data industries assisted in the steady expansion of ESP with growth by reputation and recommendation to other clients.
The experience gained by Derek has steered ESP through major multisite projects of installation, delivery and maintenance support with after care.
In looking after your business as if it was our own is a key message to the ESP philosophy with the right people around to help with those tasks .
As Financial Director I administer and control the financial matters of ESP and have been central to the evolution of the accounts function.
Also my development of corporate client relationship building has been key to the expansion of ESP and its stability growth.
I report to Derek on all commercial matters, the efficient operation of the business is administered by myself.
Working in the Network infrastructure and Telecommunications industry for over 9 years has seen my development progress from an Network cabling engineering assistant to the Operations Director of ESP Technologies.
I have worked alongside a variety of clients from the Retail, Education, Government, Construction and Financial Services sectors, completing singular to multi skilled projects to both budgets, and matching our clients expectations.
I am a hands on Operations Director with in depth experience of project management, understanding of our clients’ Network and Telecom needs which assists in the smooth project transition from planning to project completion.
I am also responsible for the smooth running of our projects via the various departments and also our suppliers.
Inducted into Telecommunications in 1985.
Having studied and gained certification in all aspects of the industry he then had the privelige of working with and for three of the most respected and professional companies in the UK.
Both his experience and accreditation levels in both network infrastructure and Unified communincations, continued to increase in all fields associated with our ever evolving industry, from cradle to grave solutions, sales and project management.
With all of the above he had the fortune to enjoy a 12 year period of running his own company before deciding to come off the tools and join the largest UK Telecomms Distributor as a Systems support specialist providing technical support for resellers.
Having spent nearly 10 years in distribution he was keen to face new challenges and oportunities and was fortunate enough to be offered the Support Managers role at ESP Technologies where he now relishes the challenges of his role some 2 years on.
His role is expanding and is made so much easier working with the team of first class proffesional colleagues and what he calls friends.
