Duncan Lindsay

Senior Vice President UK

Duncan was the initial founder of Networks Centre in 2005, and was MD up until the acquisition by Alcadon group in 2022. Duncan now sits on the Alcadon board as Senior Vice President UK.

Prior to starting Networks Centre, Duncan worked in the tourism industry, before becoming a salesman for a leading fibre optic distributor. He saw a gap in the market for a distributor with leading customer service, good stock levels and firm SLAs.

The rapid growth of Networks Centre proved that his vision was correct. Year on year the company has enjoyed rapid growth and is now one of the largest network distributors in the UK. Duncan is very hands on, with most of his time involved in all aspects of the company. His can-do attitude and understanding of customer needs will ensure the group continues to expand profitably.

Being the father to 3 young sons, spare time is limited but Duncan enjoys playing golf and skiing.

James joined Networks Centre in 2013 as Sales Director of the company. Following the acquisition by Alcadon group, James assumed the position of Managing Director. Prior to Networks Centre, James was a successful global account manager for one of the world’s leading manufacturers of physical infrastructure solutions, Panduit.

James utilised his 15 years’ previous experience in the industry, to develop the project and solutions side of Networks Centre, particularly in the Data Centre space. This enabled Networks Centre to become a leading solutions provider. As well as managing the internal and external sales teams, James who is BICSI RCDD accredited ensured that the business evolved to become a trusted partner to some of the UK’s largest and most prestigious businesses.

As well as having a young family, in his spare time, James enjoys listening to and playing music.
