Guy’s working career began in retail where he enjoyed an eleven-year stint in various managerial positions.
Following this, he followed his passion for anything technical and branched out on his own into the technical world. In 2001 he was a founding member and CEO of Cake Solutions Limited and over the next 16 years, he directly oversaw the development of the business from a small start-up to that of an international, multi-million-pound company respected as being at the cutting edge of engineering and process in the open-source software development world.
After being recognised in the Deloitte UK Technology Fast 50 and being viewed as one of the most unique, forward-thinking, and fast-growth companies in the industry Cake Solutions Limited was acquired by a multinational corporation and the business was subsequently rebranded as Disney Streaming Services, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of a company owned by The Walt Disney Corporation.
As a creative & widely experienced individual with a keen focus on personal development, company culture, and process improvement, Guy is now able to turn his hand to various non-executive roles both in the commercial and voluntary sector.
