At the age of 17, 1984, Craig Started his IT career working for a company based in Islington called "Sumlock Bondain" who supplied business computers to companies located in London. At Sumlock Bondain Craig started off building and preparing early generations of IBM & Compaq PC’s for installation at the client,shortly moving on to the field service where he was involved in the initial desktop computerisation of the businesses. In the late 80's, Craig started working for a major IT reseller called Computacenter who supplied IT services to most of the corporate sized companies located in the City of London. During the 12 years Craig worked for the company, he was primarily involved in the installation and upgrade of networks based on NetWare, OS/2 & Windows servers. The next stage of his career was to become a self-employed contractor where he worked on a number of projects including a 5 year Stint in Fidelity investments. At Fidelity Craig met Neil Schwemm (a fellow contractor), and they formulated a plan to start their own IT firm. And so CHS Networks was born!
