Meet our Team
Nigel has a broad range of interests. At school, he wanted to save the world politically and environmentally. The politics morphed into a continuing interest in current affairs, and the environmental focus was delivered by a Science degree and adventure sports on weekends.
Nigel started his working life as a student, answering phones for Australia’s largest telecoms company. Quick expansion of the team provided opportunities for growth and an awareness that systems are critical to a businesses effectiveness and customer satisfaction.
A series of roles in the same company ended in Nigel being a COBOL/JCL/DB2 programmer (!) for billing and rating systems. He then moved back towards his original call centre roots, working for Siebel Systems (a CRM company which was then bought by Oracle) in Support, Delivery, Management and Account Management roles.
Since leaving Oracle, and prior to joining Monad, Nigel worked for another Systems Integrator to develop and enhance their Customer Experience practice using Oracle, Microsoft, and other technologies.
Nigel still finds time to have outdoors adventures with his family. Passions include riding, backcountry skiing, kayaking and more. In fact, anything that encourages a couple of other minor passions: cooking and eating.

After 19 years Louise swapped life at a major systems integrator for the challenge of growing a small company. She relishes the challenge and variety of leading up Monad’s European business. Throughout her career, she has worked in a wide variety of delivery roles including project, service, programme and product management.
Originally from the West of Scotland, Louise graduated in Computer Science from the University of Glasgow in 1994 and moved to London shortly after to work at Logica. She now enjoys living by the river Thames in south west London and often joins the hordes of weekend cyclists in the area.
She enjoys cooking and likes to take the opportunity to use her colleagues as tasters now and again. Travel is another interest of hers, which she likes to combine with football, travelling regularly to see Scotland play. Louise is a member of a book club and enjoys the theatre. She also sings in a choir – you might find footage of some of their performances if you search for “Popchoir” on YouTube!
