During the restructure of the Company some years back a need was identified for an Operations Manager in the truest sense of the word. Craig Neale was selected for this role as it needed a person that could not only create procedure and policy but train it, maintain it and assess it. One of Craig’s favourite comments is “to play the devil‘s advocate“ a comment not taken lightly as it importantly plays the counter argument to every new product, process and service for the best outcome. It is with Craig’s support and foundations that he has laid down in the Monitoring Centre that will allow for sustained exponential growth and change in the future. Craig champions the customer service ethos within the business and works closely with resellers to satisfy customer requirements.
