TEAM BIOS

Founder and CEO

Rod Neale

Rod has been a key figure in transforming the second-user industry right from its early days. Under his leadership, the company has grown impressively from just two employees to a thriving team of 400, with the original executive team still firmly in place. Starting as a pure trading company, Rod steered the business to achieve more than £35M in annual revenues and net profits of approximately £3.5M, all this with a compact global team of fewer than 70 staff.

Noticing the industry's pivot towards sustainability, Rod took a groundbreaking step. He spearheaded the creation of the world's only dedicated factory that produces remanufactured products, indistinguishable in quality and performance from new ones. This initiative wasn't just about business innovation; it was about setting a new standard for sustainability and ethical practices within the tech world. Rod's vision and determination have been instrumental in pushing the boundaries and advocating for change, making Circular Computing a leader in sustainable tech.

Director of Remanufacturing As-A-Service

Conrad Mohr

Conrad is dedicated to spearheading the company's vision to revolutionise the IT industry through the principles of the circular economy. Dedicated to spearheading a global movement, he is driving the shift towards more sustainable business practices within IT and beyond. Conrad's work focuses on assisting large organisations in adopting a decarbonised, sustainable procurement and usage strategy for their laptop estates. This approach not only aligns with NetZero goals but is also reportable under Scope 3 emissions, offering a practical path towards sustainability that benefits businesses, their employees, and the planet.

With entities across sectors including Central & Local Government, FTSE 250 companies, and healthcare organisations in various countries realising the advantages of a circular IT procurement strategy, Conrad encourages others to reconsider the traditional IT refresh model. By choosing Circular Computing, organisations worldwide are redefining their IT strategies with purpose, paving the way for a more sustainable tomorrow

This achievement stemmed from his commitment to fostering strong market relationships and a reputation for surpassing client expectations.
