Carol Shanahan

Managing Director

Starting her working life at the tender age of 17 as a main-frame computer operator for Hoskyns Systems, Carol moved onto CMC, installing and supporting data prep and distributed data processing systems. It was here that she met Kevin when she was teamed with him on the British Leyland account. She's been juggling a career in the IT industry with family-life ever since.

Carol’s firm-held belief that companies have an obligation to give equal importance to nurturing their relationships with customers and staff, as to generating profit, has been at the heart of Synectics Solutions' ethos since its inception. This is a subject that she'll speak passionately about with little prompting.

As one of the three companys shareholders (Kevin and Rob Moorhouse being the other two) she's able to ensure that all decisions made truly align to the company's unique values.

Carol spent many years as Synectics Solutions HR Director and Company Secretary, however since September 2015 she has been both the Managing Director and fulcrum from which our entire business changes, adapts, innovates, and delivers organisational growth.
