Meet our team
From technical expertise to sales and marketing, our team is behind our every success. They’re the people who put the value in value-added distribution – and the people who help our resellers, vendors and end-users do business.
Stuart’s been in IT distribution for almost 25 years – Alpha Gen is his fourth venture in the industry. But while a lot has changed in that time, he’s driven all of his endeavours to success with a remarkably similar approach. He’s relentlessly focused on a small number of vendors and natural, organic growth. It’s certainly working so far.
Mark has been in the IT distribution business since the late 80s. He knows distribution inside-out, starting in technical support, moving through product management, and finally arriving at marketing. At Alpha Gen, he brings the advantage of 16 years of IT channel marketing, delivering campaigns at all levels. He has the best crayons in the office.
The sales team
Outside of work, Lisa has sung semi-professionally most of her adult life, so we can be sure she will deliver a top performance when it comes to Sales. Lisa also has celebrity followers including Gary Barlow; so give her a call and it could be the “greatest day” of your life.
A staple of the Alpha Gen team, Andy is a reliable, approachable source of whatever information you need to know. You can ask him anything. Just don’t ask about his questionable taste in films.
Tom brings his industry expertise to the team. When he’s not busy keeping up with his daughter’s social calendar, Tom enjoys entertaining friends and family with his culinary skills.
Stuart is knowledgeable, genuine and knows how to make things happen. He also happens to be an authority on dad jokes- he’s adamant his dad invented the cold air balloon, but it never took off.
As an ex-reserve infantry soldier, he brings discipline and diligence to everything he does — and, working closely with our varied partners, his juggling skills come in useful too.

Adam brings a wealth of 20 years experience to the team. When he’s not at work he spends time watching CBeebies with his two daughters, and occasionally helps his mother-in-law work out how to use her new smartphone.
Since becoming a Dad, his night time hobby of computer gaming has taken a ‘back seat’ when it comes to nappy changing and helping with the night time feeds.
