George Hewitt

Executive Technology Consultant

I have always enjoyed solving problems and understanding how things work. For a long time most of these problems were self-inflicted - such as posting things into a VCR, or breaking the family computer (Windows 3.1 at the time).

Having grown up in the Deep South (Surrey), I moved to the North East to study Electronic Engineering, where I fell in love with both the region and my now-wife (not necessarily in that order). Although Electronics didn’t stick, I was happy to have the opportunity to stay in the North East and work at Waterstons.

I still enjoy solving problems, and my role means that I get to work with clients to come up with solutions – technical and otherwise – which help them to get the best out of the available technology. My strengths lie in breadth of knowledge and I have experience with most of the key products that we use day to day. I’m a details person and so work hard at understanding things in depth to be able to provide the best support and advice. It’s rewarding to work with teams across Waterstons to deliver on solutions that you can clearly see having a demonstrable impact to a business.

My role now focuses on Technical Architecture; in other words, working with a broad range of technologies to design and deliver on large projects. Recently this has included projects like datacentre migration, divestment and carveouts, and office design & move.

Outside of work I have two young children (and therefore limited time for hobbies!) and as a family we are part of a new-ish church in the west end of Newcastle. I have also gotten into running over the last few years; I did the Great North Run in 2018 - I think the horror has faded enough to give it another try...
