Each week, we’ll be interviewing a member of the Startup community to find out about their deepest, darkest secrets! We’ll be profiling developers, as well as CEOs – so no one is safe! This week, Hamish (see photo) has agreed to be our willing victim.
We met Hamish back in the old iCUE days when he was Managing Director (ah, back when the economy was still booming). He is the MD of Robertson Technologies, which was setup during his final year at Edinburgh University, specialising in online data backup , but soon expanded to computer support. Robertson Tech has grown in the past four years and is now being franchised nationwide. Hamish would like to hear from anyone with sales ability who dreams of running their own profitable computer support company.
