Posted in Behind the scenes at Doxdirect on 30 January 2018

Last week on the Meet The Team blog, you met Doxdirect founder Tom Griffiths. This week we head over to Operations.

He’s passionate about A4 paper and Apple products, is better at yoga than playing the guitar, and probably hears the words “My email / printer / virtual private network ain’t working” up to 20 times a day. The technical talent behind your printing – Simon.
