Meet the team

One of our clients said we were the key to online success. That made us smile. And where our studio isn't the best fit for you, we can also supply our hand picked agency staff.

We’re a team who love to listen to your aspirations and goals. We enjoy thinking, creating, and asking “but have you thought about this?”

Barry Getty

Senior Technologist

A solid full-stack developer, experienced in WordPress at scale for large enterprise, high traffic sites. Barry’s experience at Interconnect includes developing for Centaur Media, The Spectator and Catholic Herald, to name a few. Barry is a pirate at heart, having built underwater robots as part of an environmental competition he entered and won. Really!

Mim McNeela

Project Manager

Mim sits on our management team, heading up research and business strategy. Skilled in project management, she understands the wider picture, without losing sight of the finer detail. Mim believes in the importance of ‘joined-up thinking’ and open communication. Outside work you’ll probably find Mim in a coffee shop with an oat milk latte and Kindle.

Jack Reynard

Backend Developer

A backend developer with strong PHP experience in WordPress and Laravel. Jack’s passion has always been web development, graduating from the University of Liverpool with a first-class honours degree in Computer Science. Jack’s experience here at interconnect extends to both website and web application development. Jack’s a sports enthusiast and adrenaline junkie! He also supports Reading FC but we won’t hold that against him.

Chris Wright

Frontend Developer & UX

With a background in 3D animation, Chris specialises in frontend web development, with a particular interest in user experience.

Originally studying as a Graphic Designer, Chris worked in the industry for several years before establishing and running his own design agency for 10 years.

James Whitehead

Technical Director

James is one of our founders. His understanding of every layer of the software stack from Apache to PHP to JavaScript, comes from his experience and watching the industry develop. No problem fazes him. He developed Centaur’s award winning Web Platform, which now powers the majority of their huge portfolio. He also has an impressive collection of Star Wars Lego.

Laurie Chandler

Office Manager & Compliance

A member of our management team, Laurie has been at interconnect for 10 years. As our Office Manager, she oversees accounts, HR, legal and compliance at the company.
