I’m Neal Jacob, the Head of Technical Assurance at Opticore. I’m incredibly proud of our values and all of the people that I work with. By employing staff who are not only the best at what they do, but also have the personal skills to talk to people, we ensure that we always do what’s best for our clients.
My team and I support the business in all things technical. We work closely with our recruitment team to ensure we hire the best engineers, make sure that we actively support our staff’s continued development, and provide a point of escalation for complex technical questions
I’ve been a techie since 1995, with a focus on networking since 2000, and a CCIE since 2008. Over the years I have worked with several companies, both large and small, across a number of different industries, including banking, healthcare, legal, service provider and property. This exposure has not only given me plenty of examples of what works and what doesn’t, but it’s also given me a rounded and pragmatic view of how to deliver the most appropriate solutions for our clients.
In my free time, I have a great love of both rugby (now retired after 20+ years of playing socially) and triathlon, and I try to keep fit by cycling and open-water swimming!
