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.

"HCI are our main supplier for websites, e-commerce and data management systems. So reliability, value for money and attention to detail are massively important to us. Beyond this, the thing we value most about our relationship with HCI is that they're good listeners: they hear what we're asking for, and translate this into reality without us having to worry about the 'technical stuff' - leaving us to get on with what we're good at, whilst they get on with what they're good at. It's a relationship that's worked very well since 2005. "
