Neil is one of the people who helped build Mimecast. Not just metaphorically, but literally. He’s led the development team from our inception – when he was the development team – overseeing the construction of our cloud platform from the ground up. It’s thanks to him that Mimecast, uniquely, was conceived and built as a single, integrated platform rather than a set of bolted-together services.
Today he oversees the management and development of our cloud and services platform and sets out the overall technical vision and strategy for the service.
Before Mimecast, Neil was the CTO of Global Technology Services, a South African, JSE-listed provider of business information solutions, which had bought Pro Solutions, a software development company he helped found in the early nineties.
Neil’s 20 year-career also includes experience architecting and building leading software products for internet banking, messaging and rapid application development.
