Marco van Beek – IT System and Network Consultant

Marco started his working life with a summer job as an electrician’s mate when he was 16, then spent 3 years studying electronic and communications engineering at the Polytechnic of North London.

Since 1984 Marco has worked on a number of systems and spent 15 years working on robotic lighting equipment, before he moved over to manage IT systems and integrated networks. 

Marco finds it interesting that at the start of his career everybody was desperate to get away from the restrictions of the “main-frame” environment and become more independent, to find that, 30 years later, most people are desperate to get back to being locked into a small number of large suppliers.
