Kevin Preston
Chief Information Officer and
Non-Network Technologies Director

After studying science (majoring in physics) at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK, Kevin worked for a firm of scientific consultants specializing in marine and shipping matters. When the telecommunications monopoly enjoyed by British Telecom was removed, he recognized the business opportunity this presented to launch one of the first independent telecommunications equipment supply and installation companies in the UK.

The company became accredited dealers for manufacturers such as Panasonic, GEC, Philips, Siemens, and 3M. With the advent of cellular, the company became involved in the supply and installation of mobile telephones for networks such as Vodafone and Cellnet.

After selling this company to his fellow directors, Kevin started a software business specializing in the (then) new field of computer telephony integration. Concentrating on “niche” applications, the company developed software for Amex and Heathrow Airport and many other clients, becoming well known for its expertise in outbound messaging. In 1992 it won the contract to develop a message broadcasting system for Sussex Police. The system has been adopted by most of the UK police forces and is in use at some 400 locations throughout the UK, as well as by the German police.
