What year did you start your job?
Why did you join Fisher German?
I had been working for Fisher Germans IT support provider.
What has been your favourite project and why?
Ashby Office move. I was involved from the start and got to see the entire project through to moving in. While stressful at the time, to think how far we had come from my first visit to Fisher German in 1999 at The Grange to the all-new Estates office was quite a transformation. All new IT infrastructure, print services, telephony and video conferencing was implemented and this model was then replicated across all of Fisher German Offices over the following 18 Months.
