The People Behind Cloud Genius

John Dray is both the founder and CEO of Cloud Genius Ltd.

On moving his company to Wales, he saw great opportunities for offering training and development. Currently he has recruited and trained one person from the Jobs Growth Wales scheme. He is looking to take on more trainees immediately and in the coming years.

John started working with Salesforce back in 2011 and, through Third Sector IT, came to enjoy working with the non-profit and small business sectors. John enjoys seeing projects through from initial proposal through the implementation and training stages right through to on-going support. He is said to enjoy ‘boring technology’… where you set it up and it just works. Salesforce makes him very happy.

John has experience of a vast range of IT systems – everything from NHS distributed data collection systems to massive, UNIX-based office automation systems through to Microsoft Windows server systems and Cloud-based services. His IT career spans three decades so far and he was one of the pioneers of Cloud-based computing, working in the early days of ‘private clouds’ and Software as a Services (SaaS). John’s first experience of a ‘computer terminal’, at school, was a telex machine, linked up by an acoustic modem to the local college (see picture).

He says that his greatest programming achievement is the Eventbrite -> Salesforce integration that he created for a client.

Among his qualifications: Salesforce Administrator and Consultant, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, CompTIA Security+, UNIX systems administrator, as well as honours degrees from Durham and Oxford.

In his spare time, John enjoys bread-making and bee keeping.

In addition, we have a standing arrangement with Naturally IQ Ltd.
