Our Team

Richard Leishman, Online Systems Specialist

Richard started programming at the age of 11, and spent many school holidays working in an internet café. After finishing school, Richard began to feel frustrated with the hosting providers that were around at the time and purchased his first server (which still lives in our Data Centre!). Looking over our 35 servers, he now spends his days taking care of installs, patches, modifying configurations and avoiding the tea round.

A talented PHP and Games developer, Mark joined the Webforward team in 2012. Outside of Webforward, his downtime is filled with gaming, cycling and more gaming!
