Vincent Sharp

Senior Technology Consultant

I joined Waterstons in August 2011 as part of the managed services team, after completing an undergraduate Masters in Mathematics at Durham University. I was attracted to Waterstons largely by its values of always putting customers first, and I’m happy to report that the attitude of ‘doing the right thing’ has not changed in the years I’ve been here.

My position…

Working in our technology team has had me turning my hand to most infrastructure technologies at one time or another. Whilst I have specialist knowledge in a number of areas including messaging, authentication and virtualisation, I enjoy keeping my skills broad and applying them to a variety of challenges. These days I’m most likely to be involved in larger-scale projects, such as email upgrades for several hundred or more people or helping merge or divest companies and their systems.

Previous to this, I’ve held a variety of roles within our Managed Services team, including IT manager, site manager (IT manager and onsite support for small to medium business to complement our service desk offering), working as part of clients’ IT departments, and working on our service desk.

I’m a mathematician at heart…

...and still relish applying logic to a problem, although sadly I don’t often find an excuse to crack out the calculus these days. As a result, I most enjoy technical work that requires attention to detail, which lead to the development of our infrastructure baseline/audit offering.

When I’m not at work …

I help out with a Scout group in Durham, mainly helping run the Beaver section (6-8 year olds). In the free time that leaves me, I’ll either be reading or watching some vein of fantasy or sci-fi, or playing a card or board game with some like-minded geeks.
