Game On - Welcoming Dom, Our New Operations Director!

Updated: May 30

Today's blog is extra special because we're welcoming a new member to the team – and it's someone who might already be familiar to some of you...


Dominic, our brand new Operations Director!


Dom Oldrey, Ten-25 Operations Director

Software development runs in Dom's blood. He practically grew up with Ten-25, being the youngest son of our founders, Baird and Sue. But his path took a fascinating turn – after studying physics at Oxford, he dove headfirst into the world of video game design (including the massive SimCity and Walking With Dinosaurs!).


While undeniably fun, video games are all about pushing the boundaries of software – everything needs to be fast, intuitive, and engaging. These aren't exactly words you'd traditionally associate with business software, but Dom wanted to change that.


After leaving the gaming world, he set up his own software consultancy. For seven years, he transformed software across industries – from helping students ace their GCSEs to modernising building automation services. He even worked a stint with a couponing company in Denver, Colorado!


Six years ago, our MD (and Dom's brother!), Ian, brought Dom on board to help visualise the potential of Merchanter. What started as "a few graphs" quickly blossomed into core systems, and Dom found himself deeply invested in Merchanter's growth.


Now, Dom's taking the leap and joining us full-time as Operations Director. We're thrilled to have him on board, and in his own words, he's pretty excited too! Here's what he had to say about his exciting new role:

"I passionately believe that all software should be easy to understand, quick to learn and fun to use. Over the development of Merchanter, my role has evolved - from being an external contractor gently steering the project, through a designer specifying new systems, to a coder implementing new features, I have seen and influenced all aspects of the system.  I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved and see a great future as Merchanter continues to refine and improve, evolve new features, and reach new markets. It’s a journey I’m thrilled to be on, and I can’t wait to see what happens next!"

We're so happy to have Dom officially on board! His unique blend of experience, passion for user experience, and deep understanding of Merchanter makes him a perfect fit for our team.


Watch this space!
