Meet the Team
Where we came from
Versado I.T. Services was originally founded in 1997 and was operated as a training company by Jamie Neil. He provided tailored courses on a variety of technical subjects, from datacommunications and networking foundation courses to Cisco router configuration and IPv6. During this time, runPCrun was envisaged by Chris Wolfe in 1999 as a high-value outsourced IT support department for SME's, as well as what was seen as the coming of the "information worker". Dan White joined runPCrun as a director in early 2003.
By late 2003, Chris, Dan and Jamie joined forces and trading was commenced under the runPCrun brand name for all support work and procument, while hosting and training was continued under the Versado name. Eventually Jamie Neil left in 2007 to join GPMD as a developer and technology director. In this move the hosting operations were passed over to GPMD in-line with Jamies expertise and experience as well as the web development services they provide.
