Here at Central, people are at the heart of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of everything we do.
We started out on our IT journey back in 1991, and our mission and ethos haven’t changed. We’re a family-run firm that pride ourselves on our integrity, honesty, and objectivity – and we make IT stress free by keeping it as simple as possible.
But it’s our people who make this all possible. Get to know them more in our staff spotlight.

Sum up your role at Central in one sentence:
The Azure Guru.
What three words would your colleagues use to describe you?
Helpful, knowledgeable, and comical (I hope!).
And what do you enjoy most about your job?
No two days are ever the same. We have customers with all different kinds of technologies, so supporting them means I am exposed to new challenges and scenarios all the time.
Check your phone, what was the last emoji you sent?
Crying laughing face (😂) and the monkey see no evil (🙈).
Who was or is your biggest inspiration?
It has to be my mum – she always made sure that I had everything I needed growing up and did everything she could for me and my brother.
You’re hosting a three-course dinner party, what’s on the menu?
Garlic and chilli prawns to start, steak, veg, and chunky chips for main, and a warm brownie with ice cream for dessert.
Back to Central, what makes the company stand out?
We have a team of highly skilled staff, who really care about our customers – meaning we always go out of our way to provide the best, most headache-free service possible.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself we might not know:

What would the title of your autobiography be?
Don’t look back, you’re not going that way.
Central’s mission is to ‘restore faith in IT’ – tell us more about what this means to you:
There are a lot of IT companies out there that promise the earth but can’t back it up – or throw massive costs at the customer once they’ve signed. Central works with clients to provide the service they want, need, expect, and deserve – and we’re completely transparent from the get-go.
Central Networks are a strategic technology partner. Excellent technology is a given, customer service, trust and long-term relationships are what drive our business. We support CEOs, Heads of IT, IT technicians and transformation directors to ensure technology provides an edge to their organisations.
