Meet The Team

Putting IT right


James Meek
Managing Director

After working for over twelve years as an IT reseller, from 2013, James devoted a substantial amount of time to building Gridserve from the ground up. Working from a shed in his garden for the first three years and thriving from recommendation alone, Gridserve blossomed into a trusted and transparent business establishing the headquarters in the centre of Calne, where we are currently based.

In James’ spare time, you will most likely find him in his workshop restoring a motorbike or playing with Lego with his two young sons.

Emily Sheppard
Office Admin & Social Media

Emily is the newest and youngest member of our team, at only nineteen years old.

Emily joined us in late February 2019 and wasted no time making herself comfortable in the office. She works closely with Managing Director, James Meek, where her love of organisation is put to the test. After studying Psychology, Sociology and English Language at A-level, Emily spent some time at Bournemouth University studying Law, where her interests quickly shifted to IT and Technology in education.

Emily is particularly interested in how fast technology has developed to cater to our needs, and how it’s going to be moulded by the future.

Outside of work Emily is rarely seen without her phone and a glass of Prosecco in hand and spends most of her time binge watching shows on Netflix or indulging in a new book.
