Q&A with Tech Impact Awards Judges

Roger Whittle, Jigsaw24
Roger Whittle

After a brief stint at Apple in his early twenties, Roger founded Jigsaw24 aged 27 in 1992 and has served as CEO ever since. In that time Jigsaw24 has developed from a start-up telesales operation to the 300 employee fully-fledged managed service provider organisation it is today. Roger is a passionate advocate of environmental and sustainability initiatives and never tires of banging on about this on his Linkedin account like a scratched record. Jigsaw24 is the only MSP to hold the accreditations of Apple Authorised Enterprise Reseller, Apple Premium Service Provider and Apple Authorised Education Specialist with nationwide reach and industry leading edge expertise in media solutions and all things Apple.

Why have you agreed to be a Tech Impact judge?
Good planets are hard to come by, so we need to look after ours a lot better. Nothing matters more than tackling the climate emergency together and so it is a pleasure and honour to be a judge at the CRN Tech Impact Awards which play a really positive role in shining a light, (an LED light of course) on the valuable progress which the IT sector is making attacking this emergency which, unaddressed, will put at risk our very existence.
