It began with the shared passion of our co-founders Paul and Wayne. They wanted to create solutions to the various problems in the technology and security industries.
So they formed a company that would work in partnership with customers to develop solutions that connect people to buildings through smart technology. Minimal impact on infrastructure. But flexible enough to achieve maximum results. That company was Digital Forge, now Forge.
Today Forge has a solid foundation to achieve its mission of building understanding for the commercial real estate, higher education and retail sectors. Forge develops and implements holistic solutions which stem from inspiring products, extending to reassuring support and aftercare for its customers.
And although much of what Forge does is based in technology, it never loses itself or confuses its customers in a labyrinth of jargon and tech-speak. Forge builds lasting relationships so that it – and importantly Forge’s customers – can learn, grow and are set up for success.
Based in Bristol, the UK’s ‘silicon gorge’, Forge is made up of a great team who put customers at the heart of what it does.
Straight talking is the name of the game. Wayne has over 20 years’ experience in web, digital media and mobile technology industries. He says it like it is.
Passionate and a fountain of knowledge (with occasional cringe worthy Dad jokes) Paul has over 20 years in the security industry up his sleeve working with big names like Tesla, Apple and John Lewis and Partners.
Often said to be ‘the man with a plan’ Steve brings Forge a wealth of experience from the electronic security industry. He has managed multiple successful businesses and uses this know-how to ensure Forge runs smoothly.
With the best beard in the company, Bastiaan has worked across a number of multi-functional operational teams in the hospitality and PropTech sectors. He knows the importance of great visitor experience and how to achieve it.
He’s French and loves cycling, but Alexis also loves Forge. Having been on the other side of the fence as a customer, Alexis knows what our customers need and as our Key Accounts person delivers on this and more.
The only Kiwi in the team, Corrie takes an All Black ‘all or nothing’ approach to marketing. Managing everything across Forge’s website, social, partner and customer communications.
Nick ensures that our customers on-board smoothly with no hassle. With a military operation like approach to tasks, you can count on Nick to get the job done.
Microsoft Azure specialist and self-confessed ‘code nerd’, Mark joins Forge to ensure our solutions are top-notch and deliver speed, ease and competitive advantage for customers.
With the 2nd best beard, Joe is our resident adrenaline junkie, who loves a rollercoaster, the faster, the better. He uses his in-depth knowledge of software development to make our solutions smarter.
He’s a dream and an excuse to have a cute dog picture on here.
