Our People: Gordon Farquhar

Gordon's been involved with networking (LAN/WAN/WIFI/monitoring) for more years than he’d care to own up to. (Anyone remember token ring, FDDI, X25 networks?)

Previous employers include GSK, NHS and University of Tasmania. These roles provided the opportunity to live in London and Australia, returning to Scotland 4 years ago having missed the weather.

Outside of work his time is mostly taken care off looking after his 3 year old and 6 month old boys. When able to rope in the grandparents to help with the kids he enjoys golfing, travel, and trying to sleep for more than three hours in one go. Currently Gordon's looking forward to visiting Berlin, for the first time with his partner Fiona in a couple of months.

Gordon's found the NCR Edinburgh culture to be relaxed and professional and enjoys the diversity of culture and skills within the office.
