Michelle joined First Media in October 2014 and is the first person you will speak to when you call us. Responsible for business administration, Michelle ensures the day to day running of the office is smooth. Other responsibilities include accounts, invoices, statements and general office duties.
In her spare time, Michelle enjoys running, reading and spending time with her friends, family and two young children.
Dane joined us early in 2014, and is an extremely confident and competent individual who picks up new skills very easily. Dane has many years of commercial experience in Microsoft .NET and SQL and involved in a large number of projects. With a solid understanding of many languages, this makes Dane the guy for bespoke software and back-end web development, but sadly lacking in tea making skills!
