Our Team

Here’s some of the Cloud Business team that you would be working with:

James has always loved Business and IT. Combining the two came in 2009 when he founded Cloud Business to seize the opportunity to specialise in a newly forming technology wave, namely, Cloud Computing. Now that the business is established, James concentrates on managing the company and meeting with customers and partners which he loves. When not behind the desk or wheel, James enjoys cycling, cars and spending time with his young family.

Sales Director
Gary Duke

Gary is a perfectionist and having witnessed, first hand, poor sales and technical advice, decided to move into more of a direct customer advisory role using his technical and consulting background to help business solve their IT challenges by providing solutions based on best advice, guidance and innovation. These underlying principles continue to support the business focus of Cloud Business today.
