Co-founder Michael is the Financial Director of Hardware Associates with Bill Champness. Before Hardware Associates Michael was MD of a hi-fi manufacturing company, exporting to countries around the world including Japan. As the internet began to be increasingly used by businesses and end users alike, the pair saw an opportunity and founded Hardware Associates in 1997.
The company has seen many changes over almost two decades in the fast paced IT industry yet has kept its focus on offering an increasingly wide range of services and outstanding customer care.
In his spare time, Michael enjoys golf, horse-racing and travelling. He is also an Arundel Town Councillor and was elected Mayor in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
