I.T. Guru and Managing Director
Adam is the founder of Hippo IT and over the last 15 years has grown the business into what it is today. With an insatiable passion for all things IT or tech related, Adam eats, sleeps and breaths in binary.
Yes, he’s a geek, but not a typical geek. He understands businesses and what they need from technology, and its this passion that makes Hippo unique.
With over 20 years experience in the sector, Adam has amassed a wealth of knowledge of the products and services that drive the IT industry and has worked with all sizes of companies, big and small, to deliver class leading IT solutions that work.
Brand strategy and web development
Fiona looks after all our brand strategy development, identity, web and digital marketing, and brand storytelling.
She has 20 years creative experience, working with a wide range of private, public and third sector organisations, in energy, retail, food and drink, tourism and heritage, textiles and fashion, creative industries; and with governments; international development agencies; local communities and charities.
Fiona is passionate about innovation, especially in a digital context, and loves nothing better than finding creative ways for businesses to tell their story in a way that best connects with their customers.
Her other areas of interest include international trade, Scottish luxury, rural development and the countryside.
Training, learning and development
Jennifer has over five years’ experience working in the field of Learning & Development and specialises in designing and delivering end-user IT training. She excels in Microsoft Excel training (!); Jennifer loves a spreadsheet and is determined to help everyone else love them too!
Jennifer is an experienced trainer and facilitator who ensures that the training sticks so that participants remember what they’ve learned and can apply it to their own day to day work. She does this using coaching and practical activities, so you won’t just be sitting watching a demonstration.
Jennifer has previously gained over ten years of administrative experience, supporting a variety of businesses and adapting their processes to become more efficient through the effective use of technology. Jennifer is passionate about helping people fulfil their potential and is an avid social media fan.
Let’s get one thing straight, we are geeks! We don’t look like your traditional geek, but being a geek is great. We understand how all the stuff you use works, how to get it to talk, do what you want, and more importantly, need it to do.
We don’t talk tech. We speak English. Plain and simple. We find people glaze over less.
We are happy to work with small and large organisations alike, and we apply the same level of passion for what we do to all.
Adrian Hendry, Director, Avondale Care Scotland
'Adam has helped us to ‘know’ what we don’t know by taking the time to understand our growing business and put together a bespoke package of IT services to meet our needs.
We’re building new facilities to a strict budget and timetable, and Hippo IT Management has become a trusted advisor during that process.
I have peace of mind that we’ve installed the right technology at the right price, and that it will be diligently maintained moving forward.’
Karl Hunter, Green Machines UK Ltd
'Hippo IT Management is literally a one-stop-shop for hardware, software, telecomms, consumables and support – a complete solution for us.
I can phone, discuss my requirements and trust that I will have the solution on my doorstep (or on my pc) within a very short space of time – and at a great price!
Removing the need to work with lots of different suppliers with pricing that often reflects their high overheads, has freed me up to focus on the business at hand.'
Annie Dixon Director, Ochil Foods
'We have a great relationship with Hippo IT Management, developed over 12 years, because they fundamentally understand our business.
We don’t operate a standard 9-5 working day and if something goes wrong at 4am, it’s business critical. Adam works hard to ensure that our set-up is robust but if we do hit an issue, he’s up and on the case when we need him.
I doubt we’d find that level of service with anyone else.'
Bruce Bannerman, Bannerman’s Colour Studio
'Our business activities are conducted over a number of sites, reliant on VPN connections in order to process payments. If something goes wrong, it literally and immediately stops us from making money.
Not only does Hippo IT Management understand our business needs, they have helped streamline our set-up to reduce the possibility of downtime. Knowing that our IT provider can be trusted to fix problems as they arise, with a real sense of urgency and a few laughs along the way, is worth every penny and more!'
Neil Forbes, Perthshire Agricultural Society
'Hippo IT Management provides our web development and an on-demand tech service annually during the Perth Show.
Not only is the work always delivered on time and to a high standard, Hippo IT go the extra mile to make sure they are available during the show should any issues arise.'
