Meet Our Team

Eddie Donnelly

The Proprietor, has spent 25+ years working in I.T.  After years of working for a Multi-National I.T Company as a Field Engineer and working on the Dell and Barclays Contracts to name a few, there isn’t much he hasn’t seen.

Eddie crossed paths with Belinda Carlisle when she picked up his diary that he had dropped whilst he was loading a large laser printer into his van.  Eddie was of course speechless!

Eddie’s love of all things technical started at an early age, whilst dismantling his Dad’s cassette player, and putting it back together, with a few spare parts too!  His first computer was a 48K Spectrum, which he changed the membrane for the keyboard on!!

 

 

 

 

Joanne Tippett

The Manager, has worked at E & S Computers since it was established in 2007. She has a varied job background, from Business Admin, Hairdresser, Residential Care, and Dinner Lady, but has gone full circle back to Business Admin, and currently studying a Level 3 Diploma in Management.

Her interest in I.T started with the purchase of her first computer in 1994, an Amiga 1200, with hours spent playing games like Monkey Island & Manic Mansion, and using the Word-processing package, to write stories.

Joanne enjoys baking in her spare time, and brings the finished articles in to work for the team to devour!!

 

 

 

 

 

Sophie Hucker

Is the newest member of staff, with such a mature head on young shoulders she completes the team dynamics.  She is currently doing a Level 2 Diploma in Business Admin.

Sophie has been an avid horse rider since she was a toddler, and still continues her weekend jaunts in the Somerset Countryside, only falling off occasionally!!

Sophie loves to organise & host parties, with her latest party theme being “Glitter & Glow”, a good time was had by all – sharing the goings on with the rest of the team in the following weeks!

There is never a dull moment with Sophie around, from her witty one liners and her infectious giggle, that then sets Jo off, putting to the test that a “happy workforce, is a productive workforce”, which they are sure Eddie will agree with!

 

 

 

Kyra O’Regan

First became a part of E & S Computers summer 2016 during work experience, in this time she would assist Jo with many of her daily tasks.  Taking so well to the job Kyra now works Saturdays and continues to excel in the tasks she carries out.

Kyra always manages to produce wonderful windows displays, keeping up with the current seasonal themes.

In her spare time, she enjoys to; read a wide variety of books, take her dog for a walk (a dog lover she is indeed!!), creative writing and designing new clothes. A girl can never have too many clothes!

Kyra is looking forward to joining college in September, perusing her goals in psychology.

 

 

 

 

 

Champ (Office Dog)

This sweet little Border Terrier is always eager to get to work in the mornings, just so he can go back to bed for a morning nap, only waking when nature calls, or he hears the rustling of his treat bag, or smells something yummy.

He enjoys his walks around Ilminster, wanting to greet all the passers-by, be they four legged or two.  He has quickly learnt his favourite roots, one of which goes past the pet shop in Ditton Street, for his weekly nibbles!!  He also loves munching on wild mint, nettles, cow parsley and sticky buds, and knows the best places to find them.

Champ can be very stubborn when out walking, if his nose picks up the scent of something irresistible, then that is the direction he wants to go in, he may be small, but the old adage of “stubborn as a mule” springs to mind!!

If you see us walking around Ilminster be sure to say hello!!
