Alistair Fulton installed as Master of WCIT

‘Proud to be Boring’ says Alistair in his speech

FultonA belated Congratulations to Alistair Fulton on his installation as Master of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists last week.

TriadI’ve known Alistair for around three decades as the Founding MD of Triad and its IPO in 1996. After serving as Charman to 1999, Alistair remains the Senior NED at Triad to this day. Alistair was also President of the CSSA (now TechUK) in 2000/2001.

I was really touched that Alistair mentioned me in his speech last week – recounting how proud he was to receive a Holway Boring Award back in the 1990s. Admiral, at that time one of Triad’s major competitors, had been the first recipient of the Award for its 10+ years of uninterrupted profits growth and Alistair was ‘desperate to get the award’ too. Unfortunately Triad lost the Award when it became too exciting! But so, over the years, has every other recipient. It is very difficult to keep up an unbroken profits growth record FOREVER. Indeed the only company to currently hold a Holway Boring Award is Computacenter. Mike Norris seems equally proud of his award back in June 2018. See Boring Award for Computacenter!
