Mike Proud

Red Maple

Mike believes that IT should make your life easier, reduce your stress levels and allow your business to run smoothly. He prides himself on being highly technical but very human! Unlike many techies Mike is a rare breed that is able to explain some very technical jargon in plain English. He has worked in the IT industry for many years and set up Red Maple in his 20’s as a young entrepreneur.

This is what Mike says about Red Maple “We’re an open and progressive company. And when it comes to helping you with your IT needs we’re careful to cut the jargon and make sure that we’re easy to talk to and work with. Each of us has the technical skills to help you, either over the phone or face-to-face. And because we’re business-focused, you can be confident that our recommendations will be carefully considered and researched to precisely meet your needs.”

He has a young son and loves the environment, being outdoors, high ceilings (he’s tall) and all things techie!
