I'm Alan, I'm a dreamer and a developer with an over enthusiastic interest in most things tech. I have over 15 years web and app development experience leading me to over 10 years management and leadership experience and am always trying to better myself personally and professionally.

Check out my site and if you think I can help you, or you would be interested in getting in touch give me a shout.


Here's some of what I've accomplished professionally and where I’ve had the pleasure of doing it.



Best Companies Limited

Head of Innovation

Following JH Austin Group merging with Best Companies I have been given the role of Head of Innovation. My role involves managing the IT and product development functions in the company which involves looking for new and creative ways to involve us in and embrace the future of technology.

With a background in and continuing passion for application development I hold a love for technology, gadgets and sci-fi. I thrive on finding ways that technology can serve to make processes simpler, easier and more fun in the work place.

I am fortunate to have had my passion supported and nurtured through my career so far and my current role affords me the freedom to explore what more the world of development has to offer alongside a great group of similar minded people.

JH Austin Group Limited

Application Development Manager

A key member of a department of developers working in Microsoft technologies, now expanding to include alternative technologies including iPad and iPhone

Since starting with JH Austin in 1998 I have been a leading factor in creating and developing a fast growing department which is now providing application development services to a number of internal clients. We source, develop and support online and desktop applications for our clients aiming to meet and surpass any requirement asked of us using whatever technology or skillset required or requested.

Alongside developing applications I also manage a great group of developers taking a strong interest in staff motivation and wellbeing inspired by my peers and the Best Companies methodology. We work in a very fast paced, continuously evolving environment and are rewarded with a wealth of technology and support to see us through.
