Richard Blanford

Richard founded Fordway in 1991 and has built it into one of the UK’s most respected managed cloud and infrastructure transformation companies. His IT career began in the late 1980s at Ruby Computers selling PCs and peripherals, where he identified a need to provide hands-on skills and support. He set up Fordway selling and carrying out installations and grew the company through winning and successfully delivering increasingly larger contracts. Five years ago he led a major investment in infrastructure, staff and training to enable Fordway to supply managed cloud services, which now provide approximately half the company’s total revenues.
