I’m Chris and I’m one of the founding members of Create IT. My role as Managing Director takes me across the whole business so no doubt if you’re thinking of becoming a customer, or already are one, we’ll interact with each other.
I’m a big fan of process and procedure and love to see IT solutions in action solving business issues and increasing our customer’s bottom-line. I’m very much a believer in ‘the right solution, the first time’, and making a business better, more efficient and ultimately more profitable through the use of IT, rather than IT for IT’s sake. Service and delivery are at the forefront of my mind at all times, we are a business that serves first and sells second and this approach has seen us grow organically year-on-year in an extremely sustainable way.
When I’m not in the office I can usually be found on a bike somewhere, or failing that Berlin or Munich pursuing my current personal development goal of becoming fluent in German within the next few years – Wenn man kann Deutsch sprechen dann auf Deutsch bitte!
About My Business
We focus on providing managed IT services: IT support, hosted services (file sharing, business email, and more) and software development, as well as consultancy and project management. Create IT can develop bespoke systems, rather than relying solely upon reselling other vendor’s software, covering anything from CRM to manufacturing control systems, this also saves our customers’ money when compared to traditional licensing and software maintenance costs.
Hands-on and proactive, we’re as business savvy as we are tech savvy. We’ll give you access to a dedicated ‘on tap’ team of IT professionals, with the capability and experience to manage your entire IT solution – whoever supplied it.
Why I Joined BNI Bourne
I joined BNI to make connections with the local business community and to increase the awareness of Create IT, our people and what makes us different compared to our competitors in and around Berkshire.
What BNI has meant for me & my business
BNI has increased Create IT’s bottom-line, in terms of GP, by at least £50K over the last 12 months.
In that period I have also been leading the Bourne Chapter as President which has been both an interesting and rewarding experience, as well as to have assisted my own personal development in public speaking.
