Meet our team!

  • Simon Alder - Owner/Director
    Simon Alder


    Simon founded Alder Technology Consulting in 2008, after seeing a gap in the market for a firm which not only provided innovative design, but also took the time to see the projects through to completion.

    Simon's Audio Visual design skills have been recognised at AVIA and Crestron awards nights, with many companies seeking him out to comment on their product line and suggest ways to improve existing product, as well as assist with the development of new products.

    This in turn places Simon in an enviable position of being able to design solutions for clients with an eye on the future, reducing costs, maximising efficiency and ensuring his clients are never left with old technology.
