Sam Whittle - Company Shareholder

Before joining WOT Sam had been Director for Honeywell Australia, General Manager for FFE and represented the Far East for Fire & Security on Honeywell’s World Policy Committee.

Andrew Bowes - Director

Andrew has been with WOT since graduating with a Business IT degree. After completing other business roles, his potential was identified and he was fast tracked to Director. As head of the Sales and Projects side of the business, Andrew has handpicked the dynamic team that he manages and they work together to ensure that all of their clients needs are met. He balances work with playing golf and squash, as well as following Southampton FC home and away.

Matthew Tompkins - Director

When Matt joined WOT from Loughborough University, he was responsible for building new relationships with engineers and customers and as Director Matt continues to value the strength of the relationships he makes.
