Awaking Giants

Data Centre & Enterprise Network Infrastructure

Founded & Operated by Former UK Military Telecommunications Specialists

Providing credible, timely, design, installation and lifecycle support for mission critical environments, worldwide

Founder Statement

It’s an absolute honour and privilege to lead the team here at Awaking Giants. Our dream: To build a reliable and relevant business and fill it full of veteran talent.

I have personally been involved in delivering major technology projects and supporting clients in the enterprise space since 1998 following my military service with the Royal Corp of Signals. Our team are extremely smart and ambitious (most ex signals themselves) and push me harder to expand work opportunities for them worldwide, providing support for various disciplines such as installation, testing, commissioning, commercial, project engineering and design, planning and project management – in short, mission critical is in our DNA, we simply don’t know anything else.

Our “Delivery for Effect” approach blends the very best of military expertise & precision to every project we undertake. We don’t want to be a household name, we want to be a secret weapon that helps organisations expand and scale faster than their competition.

Our vision is pretty clear, to be the most veteran obsessed company on the planet, ever! The values and codes we live by mean everything to us and we live & work by our high standards. My hope is that we can build a legacy company, that serves as a beacon & benchmark to other large corporations – supporting the ever growing needs of clients in the marketplace, whilst offering great employment opportunities to our veteran community within our family. 

As soldiers we were like family to each other & that is paramount as we go forward with people joining our workforce, every employee should be looked after.

I am totally blown away by all of the support shown to us so far. It is vital to our success that we surround ourselves with experts within our own team, but also with the customers and key partners that we align ourselves with whilst we develop the brand and expand into Europe to further aid our most valued clients aspirations.

I cannot believe what we have achieved so far, and from the bottom of my heart, this journey we are on means everything to me and I promise to do all I can to help as many ex forces thrive and find a new post service passion like I have.

Thank you everyone
