Our Principals

We work exclusively for ambitious mid-market businesses

We’re a team of 85 Board-level CIOs and CTOs who can join your senior leadership team to own and deliver your IT strategy. If you don’t want, don’t need, or can’t find a full-time technology leader then this is the perfect solution because we work on a ‘fractional’ basis – which is more affordable than you think.

With deep commercial knowledge, experts in all sectors, and over 300 happy clients – we’ve got you covered.
