Meet the Man Behind Newcross IT Systems

Dan Williams, alternatively known as ‘Dan the Man’ on myNewcross, reached his 15 year anniversary this Monday, 10th July 2017.

As Head of our IT Services, Dan is based in our Head Office, in Berry Pomeroy, where he leads the three strong team of Keiron Alexander-Thomas, Bonnie Dayment and James Woulfe, and sometimes a fourth member in the form of Dan’s pug, Peggy.

Co-founder Stephen Pattrick hired Dan in 2002; he wanted to do something special for Dan's 15 year anniversary (which incidentally coincides with his 40th birthday!). Stephen made a special trip all the way from Gibraltar to present Dan with a weekend away for two to Barcelona, plus £500 spending money and his 15 year Long Service Award.

And in true pageant style, Dan also received a lovely bunch of flowers after being reminded he shares his birthday with two beauty queens.

Stephen said, “What a momentous milestone with Newcross, Dan is such an integral part of our support team. We have made huge technological advancements in Newcross together, from creating healthcare apps to a bespoke Bookings system and I look forward to the next developments that are coming.”

Congratulations Dan, we wish you many more years with Newcross Healthcare.
