Farooq Ansari

After initially working as a corporate and banking lawyer in the City of London, Farooq was drawn back to his childhood love of tech.

“I’ve held a range of roles, including project and product management, account direction and business development,” he says.

“In this time, I’ve seen that the secret to delivering successful digital projects is ensuring good alignment between the supplier and customer when it comes to values, culture and ethos. My focus is to find opportunities where this is the case. It’s tremendously exciting when I do, because I know that’s when Softwire can really make magic happen and delight our clients.”

Farooq is also passionate about using technology for good and has previously worked with organisations such as Alzheimer’s Research UK, The Trussell Trust and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

A big music fan, his claim to fame is that he’s (briefly) DJed at London’s Fabric nightclub (extra points if you happened to be there!).
