Some of our lovely coworkers
We have people from a variety of backgrounds. From web developer to translator to naval architect ... and lots in between!
Martin is a Chartered Tax Adviser who works as a contractor - currently for a multi-national pharmaceutical company headquartered in Paris. When not required to travel to his offices in Reading and Guildford, Martin joins us at HoCo as he likes the buzz of a shared workspace and the lunchtime options our central location provides. In his spare time, Martin enjoys gardening, watching rugby and playing cornet in the local brass band.
Philippa is a fully qualified and accredited translator, who turns legal and corporate communications documents from Spanish and French into English. When she's not in the office translating stuff, she's either busy with her two children or practising Yoga in a Yurt ...very zen.
Ian is the International Maritime Organisation representative at The Society of International Gas Tanker and Terminal Operators (SIGTTO) (we don’t know what that is either...) and is a naval architect by trade. When Ian's not tinkering with tankers, he's usually building something for his boys or professing his love for DIY. He’s also a proud northerner, so is partial to a pint of ale or two.
Rob is an independent games developer. As well as developing games for other people, he's also been working on his own games for a number of years. When he's not raiding the fridge for Pepsi Max or hiding behind his HoCo poker season championship trophy, you might be able to spot him as he sprints past you at Parkrun. He’s also the proud owner of a mildly-famous three legged cat called Teazel.
Hils lives with hubby Geoff, Mum and Beano the cocker spaniel. Before giving up work to care for Mum, Hils has worked in various HR roles over the years, and more latterly moved into internal comms which she really loved. Finding she has some time on her hands, Hils has been helping out the HoCo team with a bit of admin. A keen walker, Hils also enjoys yoga and loves to travel, especially to France.
Graham has been a software developer for Bluecoat Software for 20-something years. Although the company is based in Covent Garden, he hates the commute from Horsham so he now has his own desk at HoCo! He also has a set of keys ... we trust him that much. Outside of HoCo, Graham enjoys photography and poker, although not necessarily in that order.
Roger is the owner of cleaning franchise, Cleanhome, which operates in Horsham, Haywards Heath and Brighton. A former airline industry expert, he's also a Director of Horsham Coworking. When he's not helping to keep people's homes clean, he can usually be found jogging whilst listening to Marillion or playing gigs as bass player in a local band. He also likes gin... a lot.
Matt is the Managing Director of Giving Insight, a research-led fundraising consultancy working with charities and Universities around the world to help them grow their income. He also happens to be a Director of Horsham Coworking, and when he's not working he's either out cycling with his daughter Maya or jogging around Horsham in an effort to keep fit...
We moved to Horsham in Oct 2018 having previously lived in Shanghai for 8 years. I’m an industrial designer by trade but now work as an account manager for Kantar Consulting. I work out of a Covent Garden office a couple of times a week and Horsham Coworking the rest. I really landed on my feet with Horsham CoWorking as I’m new to the area and had signed up to Brighton Marathon so met a lot of like-minded people.
Clive is the owner of CVW Web Design, a small web design and development agency based in Horsham. A former organic chemist, he's also one of three Directors of Horsham Coworking. When he’s not doing either of these things, you'll usually find him out running or cycling or down the pub.
Joanna is the founder of 3Rs Immersive a consultancy for companies who want to design training in Virtual and Augmented Reality. When she's not playing with cool pieces of tech, Jo also likes to sing in the Horsham Big Notes Choir and frighten herself with outdoor activities such as high ropes and rock climbing.
