Management Team

Crimson Consultants is owned and managed by its 3 Partner/Directors. These senior staff have a wealth and breadth of experience in the software industry and in a number of key market sectors.

Crimson was born out of a desire by the partners to develop a consultative-based company providing solutions which would form the basis of a long term relationship with its clients. The words understanding, trust and relationship are important to Crimson and its whole business ethos is built upon these core values. The aim is to deliver client satisfaction and successful business outcomes on the basis that this will ensure a mutually successful, on-going business engagement.
