Since Steve joined HardSoft in 2005, there have been a number of changes. New colleagues, new offices, new products! When Steve isn’t leasing the latest Macs, he’s playing for the mighty Epping Upper Clapton Rugby Club, as well as doing CrossFit, remembering that “the first rule of CrossFit, is to tell everyone you do CrossFit”. He is also proud to have been an Olympic Games Maker during London 2012! Away from sports, Steve is also a huge Star Wars enthusiast, “particularly the dark side”, but thankfully we haven’t seen much evidence of that in the office- yet.
Sophie looks after partnerships with our larger customers, and is our official Apple Ambassador. She loves her Peloton, as well as her husband (who apparently hates tech) and Welsh terrier dog Rodney! She may have a Degree in Latin, but if there was a quiz then her specialist subject would be Food and Wine, particularly the gluten free kind. Fully qualified in CISCO Meraki as well as Microsoft Autopilot, Sophie is our MDM star here at HardSoft! If you need the right solution, then Sophie is here to help.
Jamie joined the company in 2015, and has been keeping us entertained ever since! When asked what his specialty was, he replied “The Greatest Showman soundtrack”, and he regularly “treats” us with a rendition of his favourite numbers. Surprisingly, Jamie’s background isn’t in showbusiness, but in the retail industry where he thrives on understanding customer needs, and finding the perfect solution for them. He enjoys working at HardSoft thanks to the “people there and the fantastic atmosphere to work in”.
Prior to joining HardSoft, Craig worked in customer service and sales roles, likening his time at a Gentleman’s outfitter to “think Are You Being Served?”, so make sure to ask “are you free?” if you call him. Craig enjoys watching sports on TV, but only when his daughter allows it. She’s more of a CBeebies fan! Craig likes to keep up to date with all things Apple. “I enjoy selling everything Apple. I love tech, and feel like they are the front runners in the IT market”. If you’re looking to lease any Apple devices, contact Craig to discuss.
Scarlett has been with us since 2016, joining HardSoft from previous experiences in estate agency and account management for an IT recruitment company. Scarlett grew up here in Sawbridgeworth, and her favourite thing about the company is the people. “We have a great team. I love that its a family run business and they genuinely care about their staff.” Outside of work Scarlett likes seeing her friends and family, going to the gym, and dog walks with Miska, who you might recognise from 12 Puppies and Us on the BBC. Miska often comes in to the office, and it’s great having a celebrity about the place!
Ryan may have been with HardSoft since 2008, but has confessed he “might still be on probation, we haven’t really talked about it”. The move to HardSoft was a natural one for him. “I like a challenge and prefer solution selling or trying to find the right product for a task”. Outside of work, Ryan likes watching films, particularly Top Gun, which is apparently the best film ever made! He also likes to indulge in hobbies that involve escapism and pretending to be someone else, “which is much healthier than it sounds”. He wouldn’t elaborate too much about this though. “It’s classified”.
