Ian Witts

Managing Director

With over 20 years’ experience working in and around Enterprise Systems, Ian traditionally specialised in high-technology environments and implementing systems that require extensive integrations. His previous roles as a Technical Project Manager, Senior Managed Service Consultant and Systems Accountant (amongst others) give Ian a broad range of experiences to draw upon in his role as Managing Director at QuickThink Cloud.

Ian’s formal education stems from his love of Information Technology, with his BSc and MSc degrees heavily centred around Business Information Systems and cutting-edge ways of delivering complex computing solutions. This is clearly reflected in the direction that QuickThink Cloud has taken over the years, with a strong focus on delivering flexible, powerful systems with exceptional levels of support at an affordable price-point. With a background in both Information Technology and finance, Ian is able to communicate with senior stakeholders across all disciplines at all levels, frequently bridging the age old ‘finance / IT divide’. He is also key to developing QuickThink Cloud’s extensive global partnerships.

With experience across most key sectors including commercial, public sector, NHS, the third sector and higher education, Ian’s industry knowledge (combined with understanding of the technological challenges faced within each sector) provide him with an insight into the best way to deliver the dynamic cloud platforms that Technical Director David Barrett works tirelessly to design and develop along with his team of engineers.

Ian brings to the role a strong commercial background, exceptional strategic technical knowledge and the capacity to build effective management teams around him. Coupled with David’s strengths, the two form a formidable senior management team.

David Barrett

Technical Director

David is no stranger to complex enterprise system delivery, having assisted heavily with his first ERP implementation at Oxford Life Sciences back in 2003. With a passion for technology and a first-class knowledge of the current technological landscape, David is the driving force behind the highly scalable, highly available systems that QuickThink Cloud prides itself on delivering. He has worked across numerous companies to develop their technical strategy and ensure that it is delivered.

David works closely with the management team to ensure that these systems can swiftly and easily be delivered into QuickThink Cloud’s extensive customer base. His ability to simplify complex technical strategies and concepts enable David to keep all stakeholders well informed and is typically present when dealing with both the senior management team and the technical delivery teams. It is because David is able to communicate with stakeholders at all levels that he often gets the most out of the teams that he is working with; through clear, concise and well thought-out strategies. David and Ian previously worked together in various roles, developing powerful monitoring solutions and SLA-beating technologies.

David’s experience primarily revolves around the commercial sector and central / local government, but has experience across most sectors thanks to his extensive ERP knowledge (primarily with the Agresso / Unit4 Business World ERP suite of products and tools). David’s experience was carried over into QuickThink Cloud in 2013 where his contributions included the introduction of automated scalable platforms and extensive use of IPS (Intrusion Prevention Services) into all solutions.

David brings a pragmatic, no-nonsense approach to his role within QuickThink Cloud, with an impressive breadth of technical knowledge and the ability to seemingly make any customer requirements a reality.
