IT Projects Manager
Marcus joins the team permanently after some 25 years in a consultancy role designing and building the Hilditch Group systems, so he’s no stranger to them! With a degree from Oxford, he has a background in marketing and design, subsequently managing a successful Apple dealership. Following that he set up up his own software business, designing and implementing systems for a wide variety of clients, including a worldwide system for medical giant Bristol Myers-Squibb, the official archives of iconic British sculptress Barbara Hepworth, and even an arboretum inventory for former Deputy Prime Minister Michael Heseltine! Marcus is now responsible for building on our existing success and implementing new systems to help increase efficiency for our vendors and give our buyers the best possible experience while browsing our website and buying equipment. When he isn’t hunched over a laptop musing over the intricacies of Structured Query Language you’ll find him anywhere there’s water or snow - his feet strapped to a board or skis and invariably scattering wildlife and onlookers in all directions!
