I’m very pleased to announce that Gavin Payne starts with us today as a Senior Consultant! Gavin11

We’ve known Gavin for a while now through his work in the UK SQL Server Community and when a role came up in our consulting practice I took the opportunity to talk to him about it.

Gavin brings a broad range of experience from his recent background as a Solution Architect and has a particular interest in virtualization which is very prominent in the work that we do so we’re thrilled to have him on board.

He’s also presenting a couple of sessions at the upcoming SQLBits conference in Brighton where Coeo is once again sponsoring and exhibiting so be sure to congratulate him in person if you’re going to be there!

Gavin has a prolific online presence so be sure to subscribe to his blog and follow him on twitter!





Welcome Gavin!
