Meet The Team

meet-the-team-1Hi I’m Paul I bring a wealth of experience to Crawley Computer Centre with over 20 years experience in computer retail and repairs. I started in a computer retail store in Crawley town centre many years ago and moved on from there to a much larger company. I also turned my hand to pub management for a while but computers were my passion. I deal with all the PC and laptop repairs.  In Paul’s spare time you will catch him playing PC games, eating chocolate biscuits and doughnuts or simply relaxing with his son.

meet-the-team-2Hi, I’m Chris I have been working at Crawley Computer Centre since August 2010. My background is in CNC machining and also electronic engineering such as populating Printed Circuit Board (PCBs ) by hand, so I am familiar with taking things apart and a dab hand with a soldering iron! I repair all the tricky gadgets such as iPhones, iPads, iPods, smartphones, satellite navigation and gaming consoles. I am determined to repair anything!  In Chris’s spare time you will catch him down the shooting range practicing for the HFT national competitions, perfecting his flatland tricks on his BMX, making music or simply down his local having a cheeky beer.

meet-the-team-3Hi I’m Austin, I started as a work experience student at Crawley Computer Centre during the summer holidays and got a full time job with the company as soon as I left school in 2002. I am keen PC gamer and go to regular gaming conventions with my friends. I now build, repair and give advice on bespoke gaming machines to our customers. I am also responsible for sourcing new products for our shop, if there is something you like and we don’t stock it I will try and acquire it for you.  In Austin’s spare time you will find him out on his motorbike, working on his singing technique or supporting Manchester United Football Club, and he also plays for his local team.

meet-the-team-5Hi I’m Karen and I am a Director of Crawley Computer Centre. When we took over Crawley Computer Centre we made it our mission to get peoples computer repairs turned around in the same day or next day – if we had to order parts. We also brought in new services such as website design and development, mobile websites and apps. We also find our clients new customers using website marketing, helping their sites convert visitors into customers.  In Karen’s spare time you will find her dancing as she has been an instructor for the last 15 years. Karen also has numerous online training courses varying from creating your first website up to how to set up your dance class business. Karen if brimming with ideas and loves to help new business start ups, you will often find her with her headphones keeping up-to-date on new methods of marketing or coaching her mentees.
