Chris is our Founder and Executive Advisor providing strategic input and thought leadership together with support and mentorship. He recently handed over the  Chief Executive Officer reigns to our former Chief Commercial Officer, Catriona Watt.

He co-founded PDMS in 1993 on the basis that business services and systems should focus on a company's information assets and business goals.  His experience lies in realising business benefits that can be released by implementing technology unconstrained by the limitations of any one product or supplier.  This extends across the whole spectrum of activities associated with software development and the implementation of IT in general.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys keeping fit, fishing and buying his wife chemistry equipment. He attended Manchester University and Cranfield Institute of Technology and gained his Diploma in Company Direction from the Institute of Directors. Drawing on his extensive knowledge and passion for technology, Chris is a member of several groups including Isle of Man Chamber of Commerce and the techUK Public Sector Council.
