A lifetime of Telecommunications experience with BT, MOD, Birmingham Cable, Telewest, Reuters, Pipex and Legend Internet, several years as an Executive and Interim Operations Director and over 7 years of experience running my own AV and ICT business. Having both hands-on and senior management experience gives me a unique skillset to bring to NETbuilder Education.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT NETBUILDER?

The potential it can offer to the market. I truly believe that NETbuilder Education is one of Worcestershire’s best-kept secrets. It has the experience, the attitude, the backing and most importantly the right people to offer something special to its new and existing customers.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

In a business sense it has to be customer service and the customer experience. In life though it’s family, friends and my Fender Stratocaster.

KATE SWALLOW
OFFICE MANAGER

Kate Photo

EXPERIENCE

My role within the team is to provide admin and finance support at NETbuilder Education. This ranges from taking initial phone calls, scheduling of appointments and installations and ensuring works are invoiced and suppliers are paid.

For those of you who already know me shall be aware I’ve worked for NETbuilder Education for quite some years, originally joined the team known as AVR Unit in 1998 when Hereford & Worcester CC was abolished. Previously working for ITS based at The Finstall Centre.

As you can imagine, I’ve seen many changes in the Service, I was selling VCR’s and tape recorders and enquiries on data installs were only just beginning…..

During the 21 years, (gosh-really!) I’ve had my two wonderful children, now both teenagers, worked with some delightful colleagues, taken redundancy from WCC, commenced with NETbuilder Education in April 2013, and now onto our second office move as NETbuilder Education develops, what else can lay in store?

I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoy my job, longevity speaks for itself in my case. Some days can be quite testing, others a delight, but I go home feeling I’ve provided a valuable service to both the team and customers alike.

I am proud to be a member of the NETbuilder Education team, the service we offer and what we have achieved so far, I Look forward to the years ahead as technology and our service develops, and of course speaking to you all over time.

Dan Evans Photo

EXPERIENCE

 

Dan finished University in 2010 with a Bachelor with Honors degree in Computer Networking and Information Security. With experience in programming after running his own community forums he became a technician for the local authority.

Respected by his peers he quickly moved up the ranks to be then Head hunted by a local college and then again by CIS to start up and develop an IT Support Division. The division grew exponentially and has had 100% buy back ever since.

Dan has hold or has held certifications in Microsoft, Cisco, CompTIA and works closely with partner companies such as Intel, Apple, HP and Dell.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT NETBUILDER?

Simply put there's no red tape. Technology is about being dynamic and NETbuilder Education provides the NETbuilder Education team to adapt and change without needing to completely re-write standards or protocols. Constantly researching new systems and developing new ways to optimise the existing, it is so exciting to work in a company where you are not held back.

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?

Technology! I’m a geek at heart and I enjoy taking on challenges I have never faced before. I love to reverse engineer systems to try and understand them better. It’s boring to just accept that something works, its exciting to know how it does it and why it does it that way as it allows us to build bigger systems with a high level of stability and security.
