Vincent Sharp

Senior Technology Consultant

I joined Waterstons in August 2011, 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 ‘going the extra mile’ has not changed in the years I’ve been here.

My position…

as a consultant in our Managed Services team presents me with a variety of roles. First and foremost I am a site and account manager for a number of clients, fulfilling the role of IT manager and onsite support for small to medium sized businesses to complement our remote service desk offering. When not working with my own clients, you may find me working as part of IT departments for other customers, undertaking the odd project, or lending a hand on our service desk.

I’m a mathematician at heart…

and still relish applying logic to a problem, and utilising or designing a well-defined process. As a result, I enjoy work that requires attention to detail and/or has a clearly measurable outcome. After the stampede upon hearing the words “audit” or “license review”, you’ll likely find me happily getting into the detail while the dust settles.

I am particularly interested in storage, virtualisation and data protection, and in utilising these technologies in high availability, business continuity and disaster recovery solutions. Even knowing how these technologies work, it still amazes me what degree of failure a well-designed infrastructure can take whilst keeping business systems running.

I have high standards…

which I hold myself to, which generally means my work is thorough and of high quality. I find it difficult not to hold others to the same standards, so whilst I may not be the easiest to work with, you’ll know my compliments are sincere.

You’re most likely to find me in a field or river…

when not in the office, either amidst a Scout event or canoeing. When not weathering the weather, I’ll be sat with a good fantasy book or watching some vein of sci-fi.
