Originally trained as an industrial engineer Tony transitioned into the office equipment sector working in Sales for a Japanese electronics conglomerate gaining a thorough knowledge of the Commercial skills required to lead a team and exceed sales targets. As office equipment became more computer orientated, his move into the computer software arena was a natural step forward. His insight for software and electronics led him to become the go to person within the automotive industry working on bespoke electronic solutions such as fail-safe systems for electric car windows and even the digitisation of the traditional Digger.
Moving into the Low stake High volume gaming market, he project-managed the design, build and distribution of what was to become one of the UKs most successful ‘Skill with Prizes’ machines with over 20,000 units sold. Moving on Tony took over as CEO of a Company designing and operating PC based commercial entertainment systems which included Bingo, gaming, games and music. Using his now well-honed Sales skills, he led the roll out of this product into the Leisure market focussing on holiday leisure parks. He then moved on, replicating his success with a similar start up business again aimed at providing one stop entertainment systems for UK holiday parks.
Focussing subsequently on his Project Management consultancy Tony managed the bespoke installation of a data retrieval system for a large UK AGC operator which involved 56K network points, multiple remote and in-venue servers and almost 25,000km of cabling. This project was delivered to the client on schedule and with costs under budget.
