Our relationship with Synergist
Jason began his career in finance before joining the team at Synergist. After ten years of implementing management information systems, he went into partnership with colleague Steve and founded Express Systems.
Outside of Express Systems, Jason is a triathlete having competed in the Iron Man Triathlons over the past few years and is the frontman in his band.
Steve became a partner of Express Systems in 2003 following his role in Business Development for Synergist. Steve has a wealth of experience within the creative sector, specialising in training, implementation and business process management.
Outside of business, Steve enjoys playing football and golf and plays for Stockport Georgians Cricket Club. He enjoys spending time with the family, watching all sports and films but more than often needs to wrestle the remote off the kids before he can!
Louise’s original career as a Secondary School Teacher has stood her in good stead for training users on Synergist. After living in London for 10 years she now has two children. The plan to ‘escape to the Country’ has proved to be a good move and now finds herself engrossed in Village life!
Tracy was born in Brighton and moved to Leicestershire in 2001. She misses the sea, but loves the countryside. Tracy has previously worked in training and development and has worked in finance and office management for over 15 years.
Her dislikes: the cold! She loves the sun and enjoys fine wine, exotic holidays and walking the dog.
Lesley has a wealth of experience in Financial and Sales Administration, Operational and Office Management including HR and Training across a range of business sectors including Computer Software Sales, Engineering and a Retail Buying Group. Prior to joining Express Systems, Lesley worked for over 10 years within a large full service Advertising Agency and has extensive knowledge of the day to day aspects of running a business within this sector.
She has a passion for travel and discovering local cultures, plus a love of sport and fashion. Her dislikes are game shows and quiz shows, bananas and discourteous drivers.
Karen works as part of the client services team having previously worked for two years in the projects team. She has a varied background completing a physiology degree at Kings’ College, University of London before starting work as an accountant and then coming to work for Express Systems. Karen is currently studying towards an MBA which means if you can’t find her at work or Twickenham watching the Rugby, she is likely to have her head in a management book of some sort.
With a wealth of experience in delivering training and consultancy, Rich forms part of our new business team at Express Systems.
A business management apprenticeship paved the way to a career which has seen him build a sound knowledge in accountancy, IT and business improvement. Seeing the resulting effects of what he does is what really motivates him.
Spending time with friends and family whilst remaining an unsigned musical talent and an undiscovered football genius take up most of Rich’s spare time!
Likes: Steak, Casinos, things that go fast.
Dislikes: Liquorice, Clowns, Emmerdale

Chris started his career in financial services sales before making the switch to software sales 3 years ago. Day to day Chris is responsible for introducing Synergist to potential new clients and giving them an overview of the benefits of Synergist. When not a at work Chris will usually be found at the stables helping his daughter look after her two horses which for some, as yet unexplained reason seems to have to be done at the crack of dawn!

“Synergist has enabled us to take the guesswork out of forecasting. We can now see what is happening at a glance and effectively manage change.”
