Here at Mintivo collectively our Directors have over 60 years experience working with small to medium enterprises to help them get the very best out of technology. Our IT packages are bespoke to suit every business, as we look to align IT to your business goals – and our CEO Steve Healy, is perfectly placed to do that.
Steve has not only been working in IT for numerous years, but also business in general, working with and consulting many businesses to help achieve their aims and goals.
Steve started out working in the IT department at Dyson, where he quickly climbed the ranks and ended up being a fundamental part of the team. It was then time to move on to a consultancy position with a local firm MDS Technologies, where he learnt the art of managing SME and corporate expectations, this then gave Steve the insight to start building his first business venture 15 years ago, when ITS was born.
ITS soon became known as the IT experts in the South West, with customer service at the heart of their operation. As their team expanded over the years to approximately 55 staff, supporting over 6,000 users and 1,000 servers with a national and worldwide offering, their business won numerous awards, including Wiltshire Business of The Year which Steve was particularly proud of, as it gave local recognition for all the hard work he and his staff had put in.
ITS was eventually sold and Steve took a few much-deserved years out, to spend time with his lovely family and recharge his batteries.
Inevitably Steve’s hunger for business came back, and his love for technology. He was approached by Mark Adams, then the Director and owner of Chippenham based IT support company, The IT Guy. They both then decided to join forces and Mintivo was born…
