  • Chris Upcraft

    Technical Director

    Ensuring new and existing clients receive the highest quality service is part of Chris’s main role here at LCS. As technical director and with his expertise as a certified Microsoft Professional and Technology specialist, Chris often attends client sites in order to resolve IT issues. He also takes responsibility for the design and implementation of new systems, though his main goal at LCS is to create systems that go above and beyond customer expectations, guaranteeing they are using technology to its fullest.

    His love for technology doesn’t just stop after work though, as Chris is a keen computer user and will often create and mix his own music in his spare time, perhaps using his favourite genre of music as inspiration. Interestingly, when Chris was just a toddler he took apart and then reconstructed many of his colourful plastic toys.

  • Diane White

    Customer Account Manager

    With her main line of work in direct relation to our clients, Diane is responsible for all business consultancy on many large-scale LCS projects, from sales to co-ordination. Her dynamic role also enables her to manage many of our new and existing client accounts, while specialising in the business software Sage.

    Diane’s interests outside of work include swimming – particularly early rises in the morning to squeeze in some lengths – and attending the gym. She would love to travel the world and explore different cultures, though Diane will never forget the moment she met and was serenaded by Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard in Ibiza.

  • Kerry Hale

    Accounts

    Kerry is responsible for producing the daily financial reports at LCS, alongside handling the company’s budget, credit control and payroll. With her communication skills a considerable strength, she enjoys building relationships with clients and suppliers.

    As a family-orientated individual, Kerry spends most of her free time walking through the countryside with her two dogs, Bailey and Buddy. She loves to live a quiet life and will often grab a blanket, listen to the radio or spend time in a peaceful getaway cottage. Kerry does love some adrenaline-led activities too, including taking trips with friends to theme parks. Sleep won’t come easy the night before, though, as she gets a little scared on rollercoasters.

  • team_ket1

  • Ket Wong

    IT Technician

    One of the many technicians at LCS, Ket’s role largely falls into project planning, implementation and ad hoc. While liaising with clients, he will ensure all computers, servers and network installs are working correctly and efficiently. Ket is also on hand to solve technical issues for clients, often heading to on-site locations to rectify the problem.

    During his free time, Ket loves to play Basketball and is part of a local team named the Grimsby Gators. But the sport isn’t his only hobby, as he also enjoys gaming and keeping up to date with the latest gadgets and computers. Ket likes to differ from the standard trends though, as his inventive spin ball trick during Ten Pin Bowling is so slick that gutter balls aren’t even a part of his vocabulary.

  • Ross Aitken

    Service Desk Manager

    Having worked in IT for almost 20 years, Ross brings his wealth of knowledge to LCS as the service desk manager. Taking a supervisory role, he is responsible for client satisfaction, ensuring the service desk team meet various expectations and that all issues are completed in an efficient and professional manner. Ross enjoys tackling large challenges, often working on many new IT projects within the company.

    Outside of work, Ross finds catharsis when learning to play the guitar. He may not be a musical triumph just yet, as his favoured musician Noel Gallagher, but he can certainly play to the beat. Ross also enjoys watching football but if you catch him off guard, you may find him wiggling his ears one at a time just for fun.

  • Ryan Gambrill

    Creative Consultant

    With his technical prowess in web design, Ryan’s main line of work involves liaising with both new and existing clients to bring a modernised and fresh look to their websites. He flourishes in creative situations and finds working in web design incredibly rewarding, particularly when seeing the team’s end product.

    Ryan spends his time outside of work actively taking part in sports such as Brazillian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Running and Golf. He also enjoys taking up his cue and playing Pool and Snooker, though he’ll never divulge the secrets to an 8 ball clear-up. Ryan may not run as quickly as Sega’s blue blur Sonic, but strangely almost shared the hedgehog’s name at birth.
