Meet the Team
At Mediatek, we are a friendly team with a “can do” attitude. We are also a voice at the end of the phone, who will be willing to listen, share ideas and work with you to see that you achieve a cost-effective quality result.
Originally from South Africa, Errol moved to the UK in 1997. He worked for Bridgestone for a couple of years before deciding that working for a large corporation was not for him. He purchased Mediatek in 2000 when it consisted of a very small customer list, an Oce plan printer, a small colour photocopier and even an electric typewriter! Over the last 16 years the business has grown and developed into the company it is today, largely as Errol believes that his customers are a priority and that customer service is key. His “old fashioned” attitude means he would far rather have a conversation with a client than send an email and he is known for his great sense of humour and hands on approach.
A real family man, his daughters, son-in-law and grandson are the light of his life. He is also a great cook, often found in the kitchen at weekends preparing all manner of culinary delights and is known as the BBQ king amongst friends. He loves to travel, especially to southern Italy and is passionate about all sport; especially loves cricket and in spite of his South African background is an ardent England supporter!
Dawn was born in the UK and grew up in South Africa, returning with Errol and the family in 1997. She is responsible for keeping the money matters at Mediatek in order. She has always been involved in the business with Errol in some capacity and for many years was a member of the office team in Hadlow until she decided to move her ‘department’ to Heathfield to be closer to home. She is your “go to” when it comes to questions about invoicing, payment, pricing etc, looks after the website and marketing and can always be counted on to step in and lend a hand when things get really busy. She is Errol’s ‘left hand woman’ and share his total commitment to customer service and keeping our clients happy.
Like Errol she adores her family and has a lot of fun with her role as “G” to her grandson Bodie. She is also known as the “pudding Queen” in the kitchen at home, loves a good hike across the countryside with the family Boxer called Bug, enjoys time with friends and is always up for a chat. She is a bit of a dab hand with a sewing machine and says nothing beats sitting in the sunshine with a good book!
Nathan is Errol’s ‘right hand man’! He is in the office in Hadlow every day making sure Errol can get all of your jobs out quickly and to the professional standard all of our customers have become so used to. He tried his hand at A-levels with the thought of heading to Uni but was offered an apprenticeship in the IT business part way through Year 12 so decided to take that. Unfortunately that didn’t go to plan and he found himself needing a job. Having a passion for technology he got one as a sales colleague at Currys where he stayed for a little over a year until the day Errol and Dawn went in to buy a new laptop. This turned out to be the day he would start on a path to becoming a part of the Mediatek family, as they were so impressed with his service that he was given the opportunity to come and spend some time in the office to see if he would like to join the team, and boy did he want to!
He joined us in April 2016 and we hope that this will be a long and successful phase in his life. In his spare time he likes to watch films, go out to gigs and events with his friends, teach himself to dance, “I’ll be good at it one day I hope” he says and learn about all the new tech coming out.
