"People do business with people"

Iain Gibbons

CEO

Iain brings over 25 years of expertise in managing and implementing some of the largest and highest profile projects in the UK. Working with Blue Chip organisations, Iain has been responsible for global teams across multiple sectors including finance, retail and public sector.

Having delivered some of the UK’s most Critical National Infrastructure, including Anti-terrorism, Advanced Passenger Analysis, Biometrics, Border Controls and Visa Caseworking systems, Iain truly understands the significance of cyber security and the impact it can have on businesses of all sizes.

Passionate about doing the right thing, he stands by his belief that ‘people do business with people’ – whether that is within our own team here at FoxTech or with our clients.

Tommy Giovannelli

COO

Tommy is a founding director and is not only responsible for ensuring that we are operating as efficiently as we can for our customers – he’s also one of our Network gurus!

He’s been the lead Network Architect for organisations of all sizes delivering network solutions across Health Care, Central Government and Real Estate. He can bring his warts and all experience of running large corporate networks covering a multitude of technologies.

Of course, the main thing to say about Tommy is that has the most extravagant beard. Started as a bet, it’s got somewhat out of hand and there is only one barber in the UK he trusts to trim it for him! Seems extreme, but this fastidious attention to detail keeps us all on our toes.

"If you break it, you fix it"

"Security doesn't have to be hard"

Anthony Green

CTO

A CREST Practitioner and a recognised thought leader in cybersecurity, Anthony has designed and implemented some of the most secure systems in the UK. Working with the largest global corporations, advising Government on security best practice as well as small and medium businesses throughout the South East.

Anthony’s background is highly technical. He started out building Linux servers while still at school; went on to get a First from Cambridge in Computer and Information Engineering before starting a career building complex integrated systems for IBM clients. His career has spanned software development, infrastructure, technical leadership and security roles.

One of Anthony’s pet hates is when he sees ‘the wrong security’ being implemented. For example – forcing people to change passwords every 90 days. Every major standards organisation now says this is a bad idea – yet we still see many enforcing it, and making users’ life difficult unnecessarily.

Ernesto Garcia

Partner Program Manager

Ernesto excels in developing and nurturing channel partner
relationships across EMEA, DACH, and LATAM, with a clear focus on their success
as the cornerstone of his own achievements.  

With valuable experience at companies like VMware, Egnyte and
Refractiv, along with a deep understanding of the MSP market place, he is
dedicated to supporting partners in every possible way.  

Ernesto embodies FoxTech’s ethos of ‘people do business with
people’, prioritising genuine connections and partner success.  

His passion for flea markets, charity shops, and cooking
mirrors his professional approach: always seeking to uncover and cultivate
hidden potential.  In turn, this is reflected in his belief that you can’t judge a book by its cover! 

King of the 'To-Do' list

oli stoyle

If the phrase ‘Make it happen’ could take a human form, it would be Oli!

Oli is the king of a ‘To-Do’ list, and as an avid multitasker, he can juggle priorities like a duck takes to water.  

Oli brings a wealth of project management experience and thrives on project responsibility and accomplishment.  Not only is he an outstanding Project Manager, but Oli also has an abundant technical background, with particular expertise in Biometric technologies.  Oli has led fast-paced IT infrastructure and software projects for over 12 years and joins FoxTech as Head of Delivery.

Giles Atkinson

He’s excited to be working with the team at Foxtech, and helping to reduce the risk of cyberattacks.

“You wouldn’t go out and lock your door but leave all your windows wide open.” 

It’s a powerful reminder that, just like your home, your computer systems and networks require protection to stay secure.
