Impreza IT Solutions 1998

Impreza was formed in 1998 initially as a software development company but soon after added an IT Support division too. Sixteen years on, and despite the peaks and troughs of the economy, we have continued to grow both our business and our client base which we believe is due to the following factors:

  • Dedication to providing unparalleled customer service
  • Client retention
  • Staff retention
  • Investment into systems
  • Investment into training

We are now one of Kents' leading providers of software development and IT support services to organisations across many sectors.

We have a great team working here at Impreza. Read about them below, and don't forget to look at the pictures on the right for a closer insight into life at Impreza!

 

Dean Deacon
Director of Software Development
About me

Dean Deacon

Dean is the driving force behind Impreza, and is always thinking up new ways to push the business forward. Originally starting out in Civil Engineering, and moving into IT in 2002, Dean always had plans to run his own business. He joined forces with Stewart in 2006 and hasn’t looked back since. He is the proud father of daughter Olivia, and likes to keep busy in his spare time by sailing, playing golf, squash and the guitar. He is ambitious not only in business, having owned a business at 24, but also with his hobbies, aiming to become a qualified Yacht Master and sail the Atlantic, become a black belt in Taekwondo and to own an olive grove in Tuscany.

Stewart Taylor
Managing Director and Director of IT Support
About me

Stewart Taylor

Stewart is captain of the Impreza ship as well as being responsible for the IT Support team. Stewart has been working in IT for 27 years, and started Impreza in 1998. The rest is history! Away from Impreza, he likes to spend time with his family, including his two young grandchildren. He likes holidays, cycling, walking and motorcycling and also owns a cocker spaniel called Asha. Interestingly, Stewart once broke his collarbone on a camping trip after falling from the roof of a car whilst sitting on a sofa!!

Neal Caselton
Dev Manager
About me

Neal Caselton

Neal spends his days at Impreza managing and developing web and windows applications using the latest technologies in C#.NET. Neal has been working in IT for almost 13 years, firstly in IT Support for Vaillant, and then in programming and analysis for Fusion Internet Solutions. He is a keen traveller, and during a trip to New Zealand did a bungee jump in Taupo – he believes that this is the craziest thing he has ever done. In the spare time he does get, when not looking after his young son, Neal is also a keen photographer, and is a season ticket holder for Gillingham Football Club. He likes to cycle, and is also trying to learn how to speak French. If you ever get to meet Neal, hide your monster munch – he once ate 8 bags in a row!!

Tony Fletcher
Lead Developer
About me

Tony Fletcher

After 5 years as an Electronic Engineer with BAE Systems, Tony decided to pursue a career in IT where he joined Impreza, gaining many accreditations and valuable experience. In his spare time he likes to play golf and football, with DIY being a current addition to that list! He was once an extra on a Crimewatch reconstruction, although it failed to make the TV show as the criminals confessed early!! He has the ambition of becoming a millionaire and no doubt paying someone else to tile his bathroom!

Dave Usborne
Developer
About me

Dave Usborne

Dave spends his time at Impreza developing web based applications in .NET3.5 visual C#. Dave has a long history in the IT industry, having worked for both GEC Avionics and Kent County Council as a Programmer and Analyst for a combined total of more than 30 years. He has 2 children who are well on their way to academic success, and 3 cats called Biscuit, Pippin and Vince (who is actually a girl!). Dave is also our resident rocker, loving nothing more than listening to and playing music, especially from the likes of Status Quo, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. He is currently learning to play the saxophone, as well as already playing the piano and guitar, and still manages to fit in some gardening and DIY in his spare time. The craziest thing he has ever done is abseiling down the Chequers Centre in Maidstone.
