Our People – The Vigo Team
After all, without brilliant, talented, lovely people, you’re just a pile of bricks, a few doors, some desks, manky paper bins, some curled-up Post-it Notes and a biro that doesn’t work.
People are at the heart of our organisation, and they are what makes us Vigo and what has made us a leading logistics technology provider. We have a great team of people with a wide range of skills and experience that all bring something different to the party.
I am the Owner of Vigo Software, providing logistics software solutions to the UK market place. Over the last 25 years I have devoted all of my working life to the logistics and supply chain sector. I was a shareholder of a very successful 3PL business that utilised the Vigo products and services. I strongly believe that the investment in Vigo technology helped deliver substantial growth, profitability and improved service levels.
After selling Atchison Topeka Transport and Warehousing in 2011, I wanted to work for the industry and help businesses thrive in a very competitive market. After spending 2 years consulting it was clear that the logistics sector needs capable, innovative technology partners. So I joined Vigo Software and became the majority shareholder. With over 350 clients and several thousand users and growing, we have a fantastic opportunity to drive innovation, listen to our customers and design technology solutions that deliver real benefit to the industry.
I am the Managing Director of Vigo Software, bringing over 25 years of logistics industry experience and a former Vigo customer. My interest in logistics started while I was still at school, and since then I’ve clocked up valuable organisational and operational experience in several leading companies, including Samworth Brothers and Baylis Distribution. No stranger to business transformation, I am keenly aware of the need for reliable data for businesses to be able to make effective decisions and improve margins.
Prior to joining the team at Vigo, I used our products and can account for their ease of use and ability to gather accurate data, which led to my former businesses improving on service and profit. In fact I’m so convinced that Vigo’s technologies can help you streamline your operations and improve margins, I decided to join Vigo as the face our customers will know and trust.
