Tom has over 25 years of hands-on experience that spans digital production, strategy, business development, product development & operations.

His client experience spans tech start-ups to established FTSE 100 companies. A graduate in Business and Accounting from the University of Exeter, he previously worked for internet incubator Brainspark, AOL, MAMA Group, Tangozebra (now Google) and advertising agency Fallon. He set up Acknowledgement in 2003. Outside of Acknowledgement he has business interests in software, music and property.

Tom has over 17 years technical and design experience working on web and mobile projects ranging from small content-managed websites to large, business-critical applications.

Whilst earning a Masters in Mathematics from Warwick University, Tom unexpectedly discovered his true passion was the web (rather than numbers) and the focus switched from trying to solve the unsolvable to designing and building stunning-looking web applications.

After starting out in a small team for the UK's largest consumer organisation (CAMRA), Tom moved to Acknowledgement in 2010 to join one of the the finest development teams in London and work on exciting and challenging projects.

Away from a keyboard Tom loves nothing more than listening to live music in a traditional pub with a cracking pint real ale.
