Ant is responsible for the product life-cycle within Moorepay for all products, covering product roadmaps, future product strategy, research and development, engineering, functional design, market analysis, requirements gathering and release management.
Ant has 20+ years’ experience in the tech sector and has worked previously for Hilton, Micros Fidelio and Microsoft in technical, operational and commercial roles. For the last 15 years Ant has put all his passion, expertise and experience into the challenge of ensuring customers adopt and achieve the best value from their HR and Payroll technologies. Qualified and a member of professional bodies such as BCS, ITIL, Prince2, CIPD and CIPP, he drives a balance of leading edge innovation and industry relevance to the Moorepay product set.
Outside of work Ant’s passion is yacht and dinghy sailing both inland and offshore. In his words: “there’s no better way to relax and wind down than being on the water with your family with no sight of land.”
Anthony joined Moorepay as MD in February 2019 and is responsible for the overall service we provide to our customers, the wellbeing of our colleagues and the performance of the business. He firmly believes in the adage that if you look after your customers and colleagues, then good business results will come.
Anthony is an experienced business leader whose general management skills have been developed during a wide ranging career in blue-chip and entrepreneurial companies. Before joining Moorepay he led two of the most successful ‘challenger brands’ in the telecoms industry. As CEO of Plusnet he led the relaunch of the brand as ‘good honest broadband from Yorkshire’, a strategy which was grounded in providing value for money without compromising on service. As CEO of Tesco Mobile, he led the joint venture between Tesco and O2 to become the UK’s 5th largest mobile provider through marrying unique propositions with great service. Tesco Mobile consistently topped Ofcom’s rankings for service provision and grew rapidly during his tenure.
Anthony has a real passion for building and growing businesses through listening to and believing in your colleagues and helping them to do their best for your customers.
When he’s not working, you can find him having a quiet time gardening or just occasionally open water swimming in the river near his home. Anthony is also a trustee of ICU Steps, which is a charity run by a mix of former intensive care patients and ICU medical professionals that aims to improve the care and support available to patients recovering from critical illness.
