Michael has a wealth of technical expertise and experience of IT that is highly relevant to our client base, enhancing our ability to provide advice on complex IT issues.
Prior to joining BDO Michael was Technical Director at an IT Support and Solutions business, servicing the IT needs of mid-sized businesses.
Michael graduated with a Bsc in Computer Science from the University of Leeds before going into IT management.
He was IT Manager of the Jewish Chronicle newspaper before becoming Project Director of an IT solutions firm specialising in short-term, large network installations for television productions such as Big Brother.
In 2006 Michael took up the post as Technical Director of LuxTech, an IT business specialising in the provision of IT solutions and support services to a range of businesses.
Michael's expertise will be of value to a broad span of clients, but those likely to benefit the most will be running a number of servers, probably with the assistance of their own in-house IT Department (i.e. those with more sophisticated systems).
Typically, Michael would identify technologies for running IT more cost efficiently, or for supporting changed business requirements.
Faced with proposals from IT suppliers, his hands-on approach coupled with his previous roles will ensure that clients know the pros and cons of the solutions before they embark on technology change projects.
