A Little History…

Stephen Bennett has specialised in IT since discovering a friend’s Tandy TRS-80 Model I at age 9, and getting his first computer, a Sinclair ZX81, at age 11. He co-wrote his first commercial application whilst still at Calday Grange Grammar School on the Wirral, and went on to complete his B.Eng. Honours degree in Electronic Computer Systems at the University of Salford, Greater Manchester in 1991. He then joined James Fortune Associates as a software developer, web developer and IT consultant. During that time, he wrote & co-wrote a number of commercial applications such as the AccountForce accounting and payroll suite, originally in Clarion Professional Developer (DOS), and other products for manufacturing, private investigators, the film & television industry, and many other business sectors, mostly written in Clarion for Windows. Recent projects include MoveDiary, a fleet management solution for removal firms, as well as a bespoke accountancy practice manager, electrical contractor estimating system, and a number of web applications written in WebDev, PHP/Laravel and cross-platform mobile apps written in C#/Xamarin. Summit Computing also provides sub-contract development for various other commercial products used around the world.

Stephen is currently a Committee member and Trustee of Purley OverSeas Trust (POST) – a local charity which raises funds to directly support small-scale projects in the Developing World – and was Chairman from 2014-2018.

In what little spare time he has, Stephen enjoys an eclectic range of interests including vintage computing, science and technology, engineering, DIY, gardening, photography, science fiction, cooking, and anything to do with Japan: including travel, food, culture and language (which he speaks, but is far from fluent!). He is also currently helping restoring a 1930s Morris Minor!
