About CloudCoco

The Cloudcoco Motivation Team

 

" Challenging the status quo is at the heart of our mission at CloudCoCo but the real pleasure comes from utilising the technology we have to improve real things. If we can help enable just one patient to gain access to the right care more effectively then we’ll be happy. We want to challenge the way things are done by utilising the effervescent energy and simplistic genius of the next generation. As we grow we’ll also reinvest in the next generation of talent. We want to make a difference with the tools at our disposal for your children and ours. "

Mark Halpin - Managing Director

" I’m very proud of my Mummy and Daddy as I see how excited they are about CloudCoCo. I love the name and I kind of think I came up with it because it reminds me of Cloud Cuckoo. My Daddy’s always telling me to never let anyone tell me that anything is impossible. My dream is to become a bit like my Daddy because I want to become a boss at CloudCoCo. I also want to become a gymnast even though Daddy is definitely not a gymnast."

Sophia Halpin - 9

" CloudCoCo makes me happy because it feels like a good company. I hope everybody can get some fun stuff from CloudCoCo and I also want to be the boss and work as hard as my Daddy "

Mark Halpin

Managing Director

 


Mark has 15 years supplying cloud and connectivity solutions for some of the largest cloud, voice and connectivity based projects ever deployed in the UK. Over those 15 years Mark saw how deeply IT service providers grew more and more archaic in their processes against a backdrop of fast growing digital solutions. This didn’t wash, so Mark created CloudCoCo to provide a ‘breath of fresh air’ to the sector, creating a cloud and connectivity business with greater focus on innovation, customer experience, flexibility and partnership. Today this vision is a reality.
