Employee Spotlight: Chris Cox

By Samantha Cordell | October 11, 2017

Chris CoxDiamond actively recruits and keeps the best ICT brains in the market. Our staff are recognised industry leaders, innovators and all round impressive people who all have great stories to share.

We’d like you to meet our Presales Team Leader and Engineer – Chris Cox.

1. What is your role at Diamond?

My role here at Diamond is that of Presales Team Leader and Engineer. I lead our team of highly skilled consultants and support personnel to design and deliver solutions to our customers that adhere to best practise standards and suit their unique needs as a business.

2. What do you like most about working at Diamond?

The people that work at Diamond are my favourite part of working here. It’s a great experience to know you are working with people who are highly skilled but can have a laugh with you at the same time.

3. Why did you choose to enter the field?

Technology has always been my life’s passion. I’ve been working with computers since the age of 7 and now at the age of 32, the world of IT continues to impress and amaze me at just how far we’ve come in a relatively short period of time. The fact that most of us have access to the entirety of humanity’s knowledge on a device that fits in your pocket is still one that astounds me.

4. If you could meet anyone, living or dead who would you choose?

I am an avid fan of all things science and after reading the books by Stephen Hawking about the nature of existence and our universe, I’d love to meet him and delve into the question of “Why are we here?”

5. People would be surprised to know...

If humans ever develop a power plant that uses the same process as our Sun (Nuclear Fusion), a single Olympic sized swimming pool contains enough energy in its water to power most of the world for an entire year!!
