David James - IT Manager


David has worked in the computer industry for longer than he cares to remember.  His first programs were written for his ‘A’ level computer studies project using dumb terminals (electric typewriters) equipped with paper tape readers. After a brief spell working in the emergency lighting industry, he started his career in IT as a Computer Operator working with computers that had disk drives the size of a washing machine, that could store less information than one of today’s smart phones.

A few years later whilst working for Lunn Poly, he made the transition from computer operations into programming where the other programmers could “keep an eye on him” and make sure he didn’t crash the entire system with 100+ users again with some his early attempts at programming. He joined Warren Board in 2001 and has rapidly become an integral member of the team, rising to his current position of IT Manager.  David enjoys the mental challenges involved in developing new bespoke software to meet the ever changing business requirements.  

David has lived locally in Glenfield for many years but still considers himself a brummie in exile.  He freely admits to being a bit of an electronics/computer geek and vaguely resembling a certain long suffering techno meerkat. He also enjoys walking with friends at weekends, and cycling to counter his love of food and the effects of a desk based job.
