Teamwork is one our core values

We take a great amount of pride in the team we have built over the years at Meritec.  Teamwork is one of our core values and we have an eclectic mix of people with an incredibly diverse technical and non-technical skill-set, but we all have a common shared focus on ensuring the customer experience from start to finish exceeds expectations.

Our team is currently in excess of 50 hardworking and enthusiastic individuals – below is an overview of just a few of the current team.

Adam Wilkinson – CTO

Adam joined Meritec in 2004 having worked for his own web development company for a couple of years after graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Computing. Adam joined the company as a software developer and technical consultant before working his way up to become the Technical Services Manager. Adam’s strong technical background and breadth of knowledge across all disciplines of ICT lead to him later becoming Chief Technical Officer (CTO). Adam is a self-confessed “technology geek” and has a genuine interest in emerging hardware and software trends and spends much of his spare time reading about technology and software solutions if he’s not watching football or racking up the miles on his spin bike.

Adam Gardner – Director

Prior to joining Meritec in 2008, Adam had a successful and very enjoyable career in Local Government, working in a range of roles across Revenues, Benefits and Customer Service. Since joining Meritec he has led from the front and in the last decade overseen the huge growth of Meritec’s popular Revenues and Benefits service Flex which is now recognised nationally as a trusted and highly valued partner to many UK Local Authorities.

Phil Baron – Director

Phil has over 35 years of experience working within both the public and private sectors primary focused on helping local government and social housing landlords deliver better and more efficient services. As the Director of Digital Solutions at Meritec, Phil has brought together all his experience from managing at a senior level coupled with his knowledge for using and developing digital technologies to deliver enterprise digital change solutions. As a wannabee professional footballer Phil has played football for most of his life at many levels and is now a keen cyclist and runner.
