Meet the Team

get to know us
Kurt Beaumont-Jones
Managing Director

Alfa Romeo aficionado, Kurt could be one of the most laidback MDs on the planet. Motivating and leading a team is what he likes to do best.
Avid reader, gamer, footballer, boxer, he even tries to kill himself on his BMX from time to time.
He dislikes pretentious business speak so use plain English when conversing with him!

Tom Barbat
Head of Operations

A rising star at Vigo for the last 8 years (with an award to prove it!), from apprentice to Head of Operations, looking after the Projects and Support teams, Tom is always committed to doing the best for our customers and leading on improvements. When he isn’t at work he can be found enjoying a craft beer at the local watering hole or attempting DIY on or around the home.

Michael Watson
IT Support Manager

8 years, is that really how long it's been? It certainly has for Mike Watson, a classics rags to riches story. From Citroen Saxo to Mazda 6 and beyond. Mike currently heads up the Service Desk as IT Support Manager. When he's not working (and when isn't he working?) he can be found knee deep in Guinness at the local drinking establishment or at home, gaming the night away.

Thomas Finch
IT Project Manager

Thomas loves problem solving and has always taken things apart to see how they work before fixing them back up again. Luckily, he’s also pretty good at keeping our IT Projects work and team together too. Thomas finds that caring and sharing come naturally to him… as do massive brews and hearty lunches!

Dan McDonagh
Technical Lead

Dan is Vigo’s Technical Lead and the self-confessed geek of the office who can regularly be ‘lost’ for hours trying to beat a knotty problem. Outside of work he uses the gym or running to refocus his mind and body, which also allows him to sample copious coffees (and new menus!) at his family’s cafe and try out lots of local independent restaurants in Liverpool.

Jamie Harrison
Technical Sales Manager

When our sports and fitness-mad Technical Sales Manager Jamie isn’t helping businesses become more efficient through our IT solutions, he is playing golf, football or running. He’s applied his background in business and finance to our IT industry and likes to adopt a non-technical (dare we say ‘fun’!) approach when dealing with customers. He’d happily talk about football all day, and (honest guv) there is not a bitter bone in this Everton fan’s body…

Steven Patterson
Senior Project Engineer

If he wasn’t so good at his IT Projects Engineer role, Ste would probably start a travel business, with his main customer being himself! Generous to a fault, laid-back and with no time for ego or politics, some would say he is a joker (but he could just be the Ace of Hearts). He looks forward to meeting you…if he’s not on holiday!

Mel O'Connor
Head of Corporate

Lover of her ASBO-worthy cat, Mel likes to work to support our people development and deliver data protection compliance support for our customers. She is a keen cook, and being the oldest in the team, often shares recipes and lifehacks with our technical guys. Running around splashing barefoot on the beach with her grandkids? Yep, she does that too.

Carl Mercer
Senior Service Desk Analyst

Carl is a devoted member of Vigo who spends his days as a Senior Engineer on our Service Desk. On the days he's not closing tickets, he enjoys spending time attending conventions or browsing the local games shop. Carl is an easy going individual who dislikes and avoids hostility – maybe it’s because he’s a brown belt in Jujitsu!

Henry Maidment
Service Desk Analyst

Connoisseur of good tech and excellent pizza eater, Henry has fond memories of playing around with computers from an early age, building his first at age 10 (hey, who says Lego computers are rubbish!). When he’s not indoors in front of or behind a computer, Henry likes to be outdoors hiking and/or camping, especially in Wales. Which maybe makes sense as he is our FIELD Support Engineer.

Scott Bradshaw
Project Engineer

An IT Projects Engineer, Scott can be found playing football most nights of the week…and watching footie when he’s off the pitch! He also loves driving since passing his test in early 2019, which is handy as he works all over Merseyside setting up new equipment and running cables across Merseyside with the projects team.

Donny Hoek
Service Desk Analyst

One of our hard-working Service Desk Technicians, Donny likes to put the focus on first class customer service. Renowned with us for his dry sense of humour and his dad jokes, Donny loves a good laugh (and a chocolate Hob Nob!). Outside of work he likes to either tinker away on his computers until the early hours or scavenge for new music on the web.

Seb Radulescu
Apprentice

Seb is the youngest Apprentice that Vigo IT has ever recruited - after impressing us all with a week-long work experience placement! A Liverpool fan (up the reds) who likes to play football or basketball in his spare time, Seb also really enjoys a good banter with the boys. Being a native Romanian, Seb is not only fluent in English and his mother tongue, but he also parle, parlera, and habla 3 other languages at an advanced level.
