Jon Bennell
Managing Director

‘I've always enjoyed working with IT. The ever changing environment and the need to adapt has always interested me. My curiosity has fuelled my passion but I also find it highly rewarding to demystify technology and make it accessible to others.

The environment I set here encourages openess to both new ideas and accountability.’

 

Jon studied Computer Systems Engineering at the University of Kent before joining Ideaworks, Europe’s largest home systems integration company. There he established and expanded their IT department to support both the growing business over multiple sites (both local and international) and bespoke client projects, including super yatches. 

In 2009, Jon founded Bennell IT, later to become Polaris Networks. With almost two decades of experience in the IT industry, Jon has worked for many high-profile and multi-national clients including business leaders, Members of Parliament & Peers. He has become experienced in delivering great service in many challendging environments, whilst maintaining clear and personal communication.

Tony Cain
Support Technician

'I approach each new piece of technology with the desire to learn the same thing. Tinker to the point of breaking and then, in the process of fixing it, gain a real insight into how it works.'

Tony has been with Polaris Networks since 2014, making himself indispensible.

He spent almost a decade managing venues and training staff in the hospitality industry. Customer care excellence was always at the heart of what he does and this ethos is reflected when training new members of staff that he took under his wing.

He enjoys taking things apart and putting them back together again to gain a real understanding of how things work.

He continued to developed his interest in IT whilst volunteering for a local charity, providing computer support for the elderly and disabled, that he continues to this day.
