Having been involved in the IT industry for over 30 years, our Managing Director has a wealth of experience in bringing reliable IT solutions into business. His vision and steering has meant many customers have trusted NCS for support and guidance for a number of years.
Away from work, and when family time allows, Carl is a very keen cyclist and fell-runner having competed in many races over the years. It is fair to say that he quite likes mud.
Andrew is our Technical Director and has worked for the company since 1997. He is responsible for managing the engineering team of field and remote engineers, as well as liaising with the sales team to provide technical expertise for more complex solutions.
Andrew enjoys playing the piano in his spare time and spending too much money on camera equipment. He has two girls and consequently can recognise any episode of “The Deep” within 30 seconds.
Samantha started with the company in 1998 as an Accounts Clerk. She became Sage 50 Accounts and Payroll Accredited not long after and became our Finance Director in 2007.

Daryn is one of our newest Network Engineers. He has been working in IT since 2007 with SMEs of varying sizes and complexity.
He has a love of Star Wars and Star Trek in equal measure and spends his spare time doing as he’ told by his wife for an easy life, looking after “the most amazingly talented, pain in the bum 9 year old” and occasionally, whenever he gets time to himself, stalking through the woods shooting friends with little plastic balls!
Dan is a Helpdesk Engineer at NCS and you’ll likely speak to him as your first point of contact. He has always had a keen interest in IT and where the industry is going. Other than his interests in IT he enjoys football, tennis, film, music and playing 3 or 4 chords with excessive amounts of distortion on his guitar. He has a perfectly healthy and rational phobia of clowns and horses, and fears the two meeting to create an evil army of clowns on horseback.
Andy has recently returned to NCS after a 5 year break working for various Managed Service Providers in account management.
Away from the office, his three children keep him busy and he is also a keen guitarist and photographer.
Matthew joined the company early in 2019 as our Helpdesk Apprentice. He has always wanted to work in IT and is currently working towards gaining his qualifications whilst gaining “on the job” experience at NCS.

Ian is one of our Network Engineers. He has been with the company for over 15 years but can’t remember exactly how long. As a field engineer you have no doubt already met him.

When not at work he spends time with the family and tries to get out and about as much as possible.
Kirsty joined us in 2016 as our Marketing Executive.
