Name: Alex Hooley
Position: Software development manager
I left school with an A-Level in Computer Studies, but the idea of University didn’t appeal to me much so I went for something in the workplace straight away.
I now have quite a few years’ experience of web sites and online software under my belt, having worked for a couple of companies in the area and having worked my way up to software development manager.
What’s keeping you busy at the moment?
We are currently working on tenders for a number of projects. Our property management software is very highly thought of, but there’s still a lot of hours need to be put into filling in the paperwork and winning the work.
Favourite music of the moment:
I am a big fan of Queens of the Stone Age, if you lend me one of their CDs you may not get it back, but my album of the moment is Keep Calm and Carry on by Stereophonics.
Most visited website:
The BBC is an invaluable resource for news and sports and, of course, iplayer.
Best holiday destination:
Earlier this year we took our first trip to the Dominican Republic as our honeymoon, and it is somewhere I would definitely revisit.
Best piece of business advice:
Be an honest, hard worker and you can go far.
