Meet Team Atlas

It’s always nice to put a face to a name, particularly with so much business being conducted virtually at present. Don’t worry, you are conversing with actual human beings. Here’s the proof.

DIRECTORS

Pete Watson

PETE WATSON

Chief Executive Officer

Pete joined Atlas Cloud soon after its formation and led the company through its start-up phase to become a recognised player in the managed services sector.

His views have been quoted in various media, including The Times, City A.M., Computer Weekly, Business Live, Compliance Week and more. Even the Daily Mail – nobody’s perfect.

Chris Morris

CHRIS MORRIS

Chief Technology Officer

Chris Co-Founded Atlas Cloud over ten years ago and has driven our product strategy since.

He was recently called out as one of the “Top 25 cloud leaders in Europe in 2020”, listed alongside the CTO of Amazon’s AWS, a senior director at Salesforce and more. We try not to let it get to his head.

Mike Conn

MIKE CONN

Chief Financial Officer

Mike is a more recent addition to Atlas Cloud’s board than Pete and Chris but he quickly established himself by spearheading our £2m investment in early 2020, allowing us to enter a new phase of growth.

We’re just hoping he never lives up to his name.

Nigel Redwood

NIGEL REDWOOD

Non-Executive Chairman

Industry heavyweight, Nigel, joins us after seventeen eventful years defining the Desktop-as-a-Service market as CEO at Nasstar, exiting after a successful acquisition.

What he doesn’t know about desktops (or Wolverhampton Wanderers), isn’t worth knowing.

Mick Thompson

MICK THOMPSON

Non-Executive Director

Mick joins us after a highly-commendable twenty-two years as Senior Partner of KPMG, at their Newcastle branch.

As you can imagine, nothing gets past Mick; which is why our CFO won’t be Conn-ing anyone.

ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT

Jared Hughes - Account Director

Jared Hughes

Account Director

25+ years in the IT service sector, Jared is passionate about supporting clients and service teams to meet changing demands.

Jared lives the hybrid lifestyle, living in the midlands and commuting up to our Newcastle HQ when required.

Tom Featherstone

Tom Featherstone

Account Director

An Atlas veteran, Tom’s worn many hats while wearing our badges. Our customers seem to like him, so he’s become a key player helping to manage our growing base.

Fun fact: Tom has written and published his own novel! [EDITOR’S NOTE: ONCE READ, ENTER DISCRIPTION HERE…]

Sarah Lavery

Sarah Lavery

Account Manager

Sarah joined us in early 2019 as a business developer but her passion for customer success saw her quickly snapped up by the Accounts team.

She has a first-class honours degree in English with History so, if you speak to her, be sure to test out her Shakespeare knowledge.

Other Management

Steve Douglas

Steve Douglas

Service Excellence Manager

Industry veteran, Steve, is responsible for ensuring our customers get what they expect and more. You can keep tabs on his work, by viewing our published customer service statistics – updated every month!

Not afraid to speak his mind, Steve certainly keeps our CTO on his toes.

Lyndsey Falcus

Lyndsey Falcus

Project Delivery Manager

If you’ve experienced a seamless delivery from one of the many projects that the Atlas Cloud engineers work on, it’ll no doubt be down to Lyndsey’s second-to-none project management skills.

If you’ve not, it’s probably Steve’s fault.

Ben Tomlinson

Ben Tomlinson

Marketing Manager

Ben is responsible for ensuring Atlas Cloud offers the right solutions to suit customer needs.

He’s also probably the most intelligent and modest person at the company. And he’s the creator of this very page.

SALES

Paul Butterworth - Head of Sales

Paul Butterworth

Head of Sales

Paul joins us after an incredible 30+ years at Microsoft and was a driving force behind Azure’s rise to fame across the globe – so his experience is hugely valuable to us.

If he doesn’t start every-other sentence with “At Microsoft,…”, it’s probably not Paul.

Andy Lewis - Managed Services Sales Manager

Andy Lewis

Managed Service Sales Manager

Andy has extensive managed services experience with vast knowledge of the legal sector in particular.

When he’s not crafting solutions that are perfectly aligned to customer goals, he can be found supporting his beloved Liverpool.

Kirk Muir

Kirk Muir

Business Development Executive

Kirk is our specialist consultant for the Healthcare sector and a certified Microsoft 365 consultant.

A fully trained mixologist, Kirk is good a friend to have at the end of year party.

Katie Makin - Business Development Executive

Katie Makin

Business Development Executive

Katie is currently away on maternity leave and we very much look forward to her return. In the meantime, Katie, enjoy!
