Stuart is Mr Bandicoot, the man who started it all, and our inspirational guru for all things IT-related. Stuart’s area of expertise is so wide-ranging that it’s more like a whole continent. He has over 25 years’ involvement in IT across different sectors, applying his professional skills, while building up a formidable wealth of knowledge and practical experience. This includes Windows desktop and server support, networks, domains and DNS, email, databases, website hosting and developing specialist software.
He’s now added to his formidable experience by running both a successful IT company, and a business centre.
Stuart personifies Bandicoot’s can-do approach to helping SMEs. He knows his tech, but he also knows people and how to support them. He says he likes being the boss because he doesn’t have to answer to anyone – except his customers, his staff, his tenants, his suppliers, Companies House and HMRC.
When not working, Stuart likes to cook, then eat what he’s cooked, then work it all off on long walks through the Lake District. He’s fond of the old techie joke: there are only 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who don’t.
