Meet the VCI Team

Providing excellent IT Support to SMEs for over 25 years

The VCI Systems consultancy team have a combined industry experience of 80 years and an uncanny ability to sound identical to one another when answering the phones! 

You may struggle to tell the various consultants apart at the start of the conversation but always take reassurance from the fact that the team will know both you and your network.

Robert Creech – Director

Founder and Managing Director of VCI Systems, Robert is responsible for the day to day running of the business whilst remaining an active participant in the client-facing roles of remote support, site work and new business development.

Prior to being drawn into the world of IT in the late 1990’s, Robert’s background was customer service and account management.

He maintains that his working life involves looking after people – it just happens to ‘be in IT’ right now.

Tony Sibley – Consultant – Support and Network Management

Tony’s genuine interest in IT was clear from his CV and interview even before he joined VCI Systems in 2001 as part of a vocational college course. Tony secured a permanent role and has taken the pivotal role in the daily management of client networks and contract support. Tony brings unflappable perseverance and a near obsessive attention to detail to the mix.

Away from the office Tony can be found sampling the local craft ales with his wife; unless there is a big recently-released video game, in which case you’ll find him curled up on the sofa with his cat, Pixel.

Pete Hinton – Consultant – Network and Database Development

Pete has over thirty years in system programming, network and database management, twenty of those spent supporting the UK infrastructure of one of the world’s largest organisations. Joining the VCI ranks in 2007, Peter’s experience complemented the existing VCI offering whilst bringing enhanced database development skills to the team.

When not with customers, Pete is a keen guitarist in a function band and loves spending time with his friends and family, often whilst sampling the local ales!

Laura West – Technical & Accounts Support

Blending her love of technology, experience in 1st line support and wonderful organisational skills, Laura joined the VCI family in November 2020, carrying out Backup Checks to ensure your systems are running smoothly, as well as helping with Admin and Bookkeeping to ensure VCI runs smoothly!

In her spare time, Laura is often found with paintbrush or screwdriver in hand, getting to grips with her latest DIY project!

Connor Chiles – IT Support Apprentice

Connor joined VCI in September 2021 as an IT Support Apprentice and will be helping to answer any IT issues you may have, alongside studying one day a week at Reading College.

With his interest and knowledge of all things IT, Connor fits in brilliantly and is a great asset to the team.

If you do chat to him on the phone, be sure to ask Connor about his sneaker collection..!

Charlotte Allum – Marketing Manager

Having previously worked in the software industry in an HR capacity and, more recently, in the charity sector helping with bookkeeping, marketing and web design, Charlotte joined the team in 2016, bringing with her a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to help with the smooth-running of the business.

When not getting creative, Charlotte loves nothing more than having fun with her husband, children & friends and is often found messing about in boats, sailing or paddle-boarding!

Bear – Office Security

Building upon a wealth of experience in tug-of-war games and occasional tennis ball retrieval, Bear brings a welcoming tail wag to visitors along with background noise to the odd phone call.

Aided by technology, Bear can work remotely and is not always office based.
