Our Founders

Carl Evans

Founder/Chief Executive Officer

Carl has more than 30 years’ experience delivering core IT solutions within various industry sectors. He is a founding director of Ethical IT and has been instrumental in developing the business ethos and client base.

During his career, he has worked predominantly within the not for profits sector, including Diabetes UK, as well as organisations such as the BBC and Logica. He has undertaken various roles during his career, starting as a software applications developer in the mid-1980s, before becoming a freelance developer and manager for the best part of 10 years.

Ethical IT was formed in 2010 to focus on the provision of MSP services to the social change sector. In 2018/19, Carl was instrumental in bringing onboard a new Ethical IT management team to review the existing business and to restructure in accordance with a focus on sustainability.

As we move into 2020, the restructure is very much underway and Carl is now taking a more strategic role as the CEO of Ethical IT, while continuing to work on his other business interests.

Jim Druce

Jim has more than 30 years’ experience of successful IT delivery across numerous industry sectors. He is also a founding director of Ethical IT and has been instrumental in the more technical side of the business; developing the client base and relationships, and leading the technological implementation change and strategic development for our customers.

During his career he has predominantly worked in the not for profits sector, initially as a junior IT administrator at Diabetes UK, rising to a director position at the age of 29.

He then worked for some of the biggest NGOs in various different technology roles including ActionAid UK & International, WaterAid, Age UK and Greenpeace as well as other industry sectors including the BBC and Lovells.

With cloud platforms taking an increasingly important role in delivering customer requirements, he has been involved with all our clients in embracing this technological change, whether implementing Office 365 or moving to Microsoft CRM Dynamics or Salesforce.
