Colin Sales

Colin is the CEO and one of the founders of 3C Consultants. Having successfully run a number of businesses over the last 25 years that have provided support to the social housing sector, he has passion for the sectors purpose and is on a mission to help it to enhance social value through transforming the way it uses data, digital services and technology to better empower staff and engage with customers.

In Colin’s early years in IT he was fortunate to have worked with Alan Sugar in the mid-80’s when Amstrad were one of the first providers of personal computers, and then Steve Jobs in the early 90’s when Steve was developing the NeXTSTEP range of computers. These experiences helped Colin to appreciate what it takes to empower and transform organisations through the use of information and technology.
