Craig Joyce - Director

Craig has helped build new businesses, grow others and helped many individuals build a successful career in IT. A member of the team that brought O2 Networks to life, he has spent most of his career helping customers solve tricky problems with technology; always with an eye on business outcomes.

Be it technology, cars, music or farm machinery, it all sticks in his head as something to investigate, rank and analyse. He loves nothing more than to get into critiques of post-punk records, checking out the latest craft beers, all while thinking about what will be the next major technology development that will change the way we live our lives.

Euan Prentice - Director

Euan has a simple but lofty goal in life … visit 100 countries by the tender age of 50.  Currently sitting with 55 flags against his name and 1600 odd days remaining he may need to leave his young family at home and retrace the silk road.

Passionate about all things technology, from FinTech to Cyber Security, Euan has a proven track record of building fabulous IT companies.  O2 Networks was pretty good, Cythera will be epic.  Many ask how does he find the time? "Easy, I hire great people who know more than me and allow them to be super smart and fabulously customer focused"
