Chris is the Client Services Director and Co-Founder of Aztech IT. “Being the youngest of four brothers, as a child I was definitely the most easily led and would always be undertaking tasks which my brothers had dared me to do! I soon gained confidence though and people would now describe me as the most outgoing out of the four of us, so the constant teasing clearly didn’t set me back! As a youngster I loved sports especially football and used to play in a team called Willen, which my older brother Sean managed at the time.
Paul is one of the most charming and cheerful members of the team and after being with us for nearly a year has just taken on the Service Delivery Manager role. ‘When I left school I thought I wanted to become a chef so I signed up to do a catering course at college but a week before I was due to start I had a change of heart and decided that I was actually pretty good with people and enjoyed IT, so felt that would be a better career choice for me.
