MaGeek - a part-time specialist

To accompany you more closely, our MaGeek service puts a subject specialist at your disposal in roles such as IT Manager, Project Manager, Analyst/Programmer or Consultant. You set the frequency and duration of visits according to your needs and your budget. We define together the role and responsibilities, calendar, success factors and critical deliverables to establish a detailed specification of requirements.

Born in England, I have lived in Ariège since 2003 but have been in France much longer; I moved for the first time at the age of ten in 1980 and am therefore completely bilingual. I studied mechanical engineering but have made my career in IT with over twenty years experience. I started as programmer, then analyst/programmer, project manager, IT manager and technical director. I have worked for companies in sales, manufacturing, healthcare, transport, finance and education, both in IT services and in the end-user organisation. I am capable of contributing as much on the technical level as management, acting either alone, in a team or as a leader, in both French and English.
