“extremely technical and strategic in equal measure”
I had the pleasure of working very closely with Bryan on an ambitious and complex digital project of which he was very much the driver. The fact that he is both extremely technical and strategic in equal measure make him unique within the industry, and he has an unrivalled ability to cut through and get the job done. Would recommend highly.

“Bryan is one of the most forward-thinking IT professionals active in the European hospitality industry”
He drove major strategic change in IT at Thistle Hotels by driving it toward standardised platforms and infrastructure and ASP-based services, at a time when the conventional wisdom said this couldn’t be done. While he was IT Director at Thistle Hotels, Bryan was a Director of Hotel Technology Next Generaton from 2004 to 2006 and he has continued to be heavily involved since he formed Jireh-Tek in 2006.

“Very impressive work and excellent leadership”
I have worked with Bryan on the steering committee of the Opera Users group.
