Edward Bedell
Head of Technology & Cofounder

Since then he formed his own consultancy designing and developing commercial compliance applications involving procurement, expense management and financial reporting using  Microsoft technologies and deployment solutions. Edward is a rare bread – A shameless “techie” who combines a forward-thinking approach to software delivery with a strong sense of community spirit and a dollop of entrepreneurial flair.


Ed Evans
Head of Operations & Cofounder

Ed oversees all aspects of our operations. He acts as the glue between our partners and our development team, and ensures projects are delivered to spec and on schedule. He is always on the go and his energy, drive and vision is embedded within our culture and processes. Outside of work Ed enjoys walking, swimming, spending time with his young family and following the “fortunes” of Shrewsbury Town Football Club.


Kate Ball Creanova

Kate Ball
Head of Partner Success

Kate loves to help people, and has made it her mission to ensure that all of our partners have the best possible experience whilst working with us. She is a perfectionist, in part driven by her passion for sport. She is a keen cyclist and long distance runner, and was a member of the Team GB 2012 Olympic swimming squad. Kate is never afraid of a new adventure. In 2012 she made it through to the last 17 of The Apprentice, and although Kate is still slightly disappointed she narrowly missed out on the TV rounds at the last hurdle, we certainly believe that Sir Alan’s loss has been our gain!


Alan Crump
Non-executive Director

Having held the position of FD with two large corporates over the past 10 years, Alan brings his experience of big business and a very cool head to the party. He ensures we remain focused on achieving our goals and is a great sounding board for the team.  Alan is a keen sportsman, although with every passing year his taste of sporting success seems to come ever more vicariously through his two sons!
