Meet The Greenfrog Team

Marcus Rhodes

Managing Director

After leaving IBM Marcus was Business Manager at the family engineering firm Rhodes Group www.rhodesgroup.co.uk and spent much of his time supporting and growing the I.T. systems there. In 2003 the Rhodes Group I.T. department was rebranded as Greenfrog Computing and setup as a limited company with Marcus at the helm.

At the same time as setting up this new venture, Marcus had twin girls and found dealing with a new company to be much the same as dealing with new children (except the company didn’t need nappy changing) Marcus finds the I.T. industry a great place to work, spends most of his free time reading I.T. journals (sad…).  He finds his degree in Mechanical Engineering to be of occasional use (particularly when writing Bespoke Databases for Engineering companies).

Peter Rhodes

Sales Director

Peter has spent a lifetime developing businesses and knows how essential customer satisfaction is to the future of Greenfrog. As Chairman of the family engineering business (until it was sold in 2004) he saw it grow from an eight-men organisation through to one employing over one hundred men with a turnover exceeding £10 million per annum at its peak.

Applying his experience in Sales & Marketing to help Greenfrog grow its customer base and expand its services is therefore something he very much enjoys (whilst still retaining Directorships/Managerial roles in several other family companies). Peter believes that every client should want Greenfrog as an integral part of their organisation, helping to advance their success. There is nothing better than references from existing clients and you are invited to request a visit from Greenfrog so that we can demonstrate how we can work successfully as your Virtual I.T. Management Organisation.
