Meet the Team delivering award-winning IT Support with a personal touch

Meet the Team

Even though there are more than 100 of us, we’re a close-knit bunch here at Mirus – and every one of us is committed to our values and culture.

That means focusing on delivering outstanding service, an obsessive need for customer satisfaction, and a drive to provide solutions for all kinds of small-to-medium businesses.

We’re truly invested in our people, playing to their strengths and supporting their growth with the very best training and resources.

Creating a family atmosphere

Most of the team are technical, either working on the internal Service Desk or in the field, assisting clients on-site. Yet together, we’re a close and collaborative community. Whilst we’re part of a larger organisation, Content+Cloud, we have a family atmosphere, backed by our employee shared ownership scheme.

People development focus

We develop our teams with personal growth at the forefront, offering numerous opportunities to upskill and a workplace where long-term careers can be forged. By working with our close friends and clients at MK college, our ongoing apprentice scheme helps the best and brightest IT prodigies make the most of their technical talents.

Dedicated to service excellence

With a workforce and senior management team made up of many long-serving members, Mirus combines decades of experience in business, finance and sales. The result is a proud and professional atmosphere that strives for service excellence.

Our Leadership Team

Dan Sharp

Dan Sharp

Dan joined Mirus in January 2008 from another local IT services provider (who were clearly not a patch on us). From an early age, with his dad insisting that stints with the local bricklayers and roofers were the best way to spend a school holiday, Dan learned that manual labour was not his true calling!

Instead, Dan undertook a degree in business and, upon graduation, ventured into the technology sales industry with Unisys, working as part of their major accounts team. Dan is a great example of the career development that a business like ours can offer. He joined Mirus as a Sales Consultant before taking responsibility for the sales team and then progressing to his current role of Sales Director.

Dan has a deep understanding of how to connect customers to effective IT solutions that improve their efficiencies, streamline their processes and deliver valuable ROI. The thing he enjoys most about his role is building and developing lasting, valuable relationships with our clients.

Outside of work, Dan has a young family, where his two boys Charlie and Sam fill any spare moments.

Tom Williams

Tom Williams

Tom is a qualified accountant who returned to his Milton Keynes roots when he joined Mirus in the spring of 2011, after 10 years in London. After leaving university with a maths degree and then doing three years of auditing, Tom decided that he wanted something that was a bit more fun.

So he ditched the grey suit, grew some sideburns, and went to work for the Duke of Westminster’s property company, dealing with the glamorous world of multi-million-pound properties in Mayfair and Belgravia. The only job that could follow that was at Mirus where, as well as being responsible for all things financial, Tom also looks after HR and facilities.

If there’s any problem that isn’t specific to a job role, then Tom is usually the man to ask.

When not working with the rest of the senior management team to grow the business, Tom can usually be found chasing his young sons, Ben and Sam, or the cattle, around his family farm.

Chris Maybray

Chris Maybray

Chris joined Mirus in late 2013, having previously been the Service Delivery Manager for the IT Support function at global logistics giant, TNT.

Chris strummed his way through university and, whilst travelling around Australia, found his true calling in the service delivery arena.

He is responsible for the client service provision at Mirus, managing the technical engineers and IT support delivery teams. His role focuses on delivering service excellence as standard through process optimisation and ensuring the continual improvement culture is upheld.

Chris says he enjoys coaching and mentoring and helping people to develop.

When not driving up and down the A5 from just south of Leicester to the Mirus office, Chris can be found walking his dogs in the local countryside or serenading his wife with his guitar.

Richard Finch

Richard Finch

Richard started his copying business in 1988, the year the pound note was replaced with a coin!

Although not as radical as a note becoming a coin, the humble single use mono copier has evolved into the full colour multi-functional office machine that has become a necessity for all businesses large and small.

The technological advances in this sector have seen a closer synergy to the IT industry and, after working in partnership with Mirus for over 5 years, the logical step for Richard was to join forces and become part of Mirus, becoming Head of Managed Print.

Richard has a young family and a passion for football coaching which takes up his time out of work.
