About Virtual IT
Why Virtual IT?
We are proudly different in that we are passionate about our client’s achieving success. We solve IT issues, quickly, professionally, and efficiently. We invest in our staff and have built a culture that encourages and rewards excellent service. Many of our staff have been with us for well over a decade and now lead some of our largest departments, many have even been with the organisation since its inception, and this is also true of our customers with our average customer tenure exceeding 15 years.
We are not your typical IT company that has been acquired (several times maybe), neither do we have a revolving door with staff that regularly move on seeking opportunities elsewhere and we do not offshore our helpdesk services to areas where labour costs are lower.
So, what is different? It is our passion to help our clients succeed and by extension, we succeed. Working in partnership with us, as a team and with our client’s best interest at heart, genuinely delivers exceptional results and enables growth and prosperity for all.

Meet our founder
With passion for great service and experience in the IT and Communications sectors, David founded Virtual IT in 2001 to better serve the needs of businesses across London and the wider-South East with a broad range of technology solutions. In recent years, that same passion and excitement has been expanded to the education sector, which now constitutes around half of the business’s focus.
Supported by a fantastic team of people, many of whom have been with the business for 15 – 20 years, David’s goal is to continue growing the company while offering customers a broad range of solutions and outstanding service and support.
David has a Law Degree from Oxford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. David has founded three other technology businesses in telecom, internet and IT.
Our cyber security first approach
In all that we do, we ensure that our clients are able to operate securely and efficiently in our digital world. We take a different approach to cyber security, seeing it as an opportunity to strengthen and maintain your brand and relationships, access lower insurance costs, and an invaluable form of social proof in an increasingly security-conscious world. Virtual IT is committed to empowering excellence with the power of technology, whilst doing our utmost to ensure that your team, systems, clients and partners are able to work together securely.
Investors in people
Our people are pivotal to the quality level of service we provide.
We are passionate about empowering our people to reach their potential and we are always developing ourselves to deliver excellence for our clients. In 2014 we became an Investor In People business, achieving gold certification in 2020, held until 2023.
Our award-winning apprenticeship programme offers school leavers training and development alongside long-term career opportunities within the business. Many of our middle managers started their careers with us during college or university and have been with us for over 10 years. Our helpdesk staff have an average of 4 years of service, compared to an industry average of 12 months. We’re proud of the difference that our investment and commitment to people has made over the years and look forward to investing more into our people and relationships.
