Alistair Strang A software 'geek' before the word was invented.
He's the one who designed our unique way of looking at the stock market, using a blend of his software and far more importantly, human experience. Alistair's background, while principally computer related also involves retail and commercial property. He retired in 2007, that decision lasting just 18 months. He's worked in many fields, ranging from fuel supply projection, the first email system in the 1980's for the UK Govt, credit card usage trends (fraud prevention), corporate asset management, the paperless direct debit initiative. And he also won the original John Logie Baird Award for his cellular audio invention which was to become the Bluetooth headset. (Nope, didn't make a penny!) Big numbers are his thing. He's also the bloke who wrote "State of Independence", proving his skills extend beyond programming languages.
After leaving university, Jaclyn worked with Swan Precision for some years, principally testing software designed to map trends in the petroleum and financial industries. When the owner of the business decided to retire at 50, she did the inevitable world travel thing before returning to work for the Arnold Clark Organisation. In 2012, she opted to leave her job and return to work with her first boss from Swan and is now part-time managing Trends & Targets!
Jaclyn is taking some time away from work to concentrate on her daughters until they start school. High school, it sometimes feels.
As can be guessed from the surnames, it's a father and daughter business at heart.
