The Team

Our directors are here to help you in any way that they can.  Please feel free to contact us.

Michael Jeffrey

Owner, Founder & Director

Michael has a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics from The University of York.  He has worked in IT and software development since 1981.  Michael spends most of his time on business development, working with clients to understand how IT can benefit their business.  Nevertheless, he still finds time to actually write code for some clients.  "Staying in touch with the technologies we use I see as being an essential part of being able to offer a good service to our clients" - Michael.

David Jordan


David is a graduate of The University of York.  He has worked in IT for over 30 years in a variety of development and management roles. He has been a Director of HCI for 15 years, leading some of our largest projects. Of particular note is the design and implementation of a global trading system for edible oils. 

John Bates

Technical Director

John has been Technical Director of HCI since 1990.  John's primary role is to ensure that HCI stays abreast of the latest technologies, and to ensure that the choices we make will provide reliable software with the greatest longevity.

"I cannot recommend HCI highly enough! I went to them with a wish list scribbled on a scrap of paper and a head full of ideas. Not only did they listen patiently, they guided and advised and in super quick time produced exactly the website I wanted (and even included a number of features I didn't even know I needed!). The whole development process was just the start. They continue to listen and never seem to mind when I phone up with, "I've been thinking...." or, "Could you just...". The ongoing support and guidance I’ve received has been superb. First rate service for a very reasonable price."
