Kristian joined ITS as a Graduate in 2001 and established himself as one of the most successful Consultants in the company’s history.
His success has been built on the fundamental philosophy of building strong, personal relationships and his ability to manage numerous, concurrent instructions across the IT function.
Outside of ITS, Kristian maintains an active lifestyle and is a participant of all sports including football to a high standard (…albeit not recently). He is also a keen traveller and a recent family man.
"I have been pleasantly surprised with Kristian’s knowledge of the sector, and his ability to provide high quality candidates that are appropriate for the role. Kristian is very professional and easy to work with and his ability to understand the requirement has saved me a vast amount of time and effort."
