We’re proud to have an enthusiastic, dedicated and personable team at 1st Technologies. Here’s a chance to put some faces to the names…
Dan is the latest addition to the trade team after serving his apprenticeship on the warehouse floor. An affable, flat-capped fella with a penchant for a sing song; Dan is responsible for trade purchasing and sales.
As a keen traveller, Dan travelled around the world before settling down to make his way in the IT industry, working in Australia and Taiwan between other adventures.
Away from the office, Dan enjoys musicals, reading and exploring the local countryside with his partner Katy and young family.
