Chris Craig

Chris Craig

CIO Advisory

With over 24 years in IT Chris is a specialist generalist. He advises in IT Management and Consulting in both network systems and software solutions.

“My passion for ICT derives from my passion for nature, animals and education. This, on the surface, might seem an unlikely association. When you look at biology and behaviour they are complex natural systems that are dynamic and can change rapidly. This is very akin to the fast pace, multi-factorial world of ICT computer systems, internet and also the world of modern software development.”
