Work Experience

Technical Director - Eclipse Networks
April 2014 - Current

Due a director and shareholder looking to leave the business an opportunity arose to allow me to invest personally in Eclipse. As part of the the change I also increased my duties and took on a role as a company director.

I am currently investing a lot of time in the development of the Eclipse self service port (ESS) in order to allow our customers to do things themselves that once required a call or email into our support teams. This is popular with customers and also decreased demand on our customer service team.
