Our People

Our business is exceptional because our people are exceptional. Get to know the people that make Cantarus what it is.


Our transformation from a humble, two-person IT Solutions Provider to one of the most distinguished digital agencies in the UK is largely due to the type of people that we employ. From the top-down, each Cantarus team member contributes immensely to the success of the business, as well as making it a truly great place to work. Get to know us - as business contacts and as people.


Lee Adams

Chief Executive Officer & Co-founder

Lee’s love of all things digital began with writing software in assembly language in his mid-teens. He studied for a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield, graduating with first-class honours.

After graduating, he joined Accenture where he was one of their top-performing Consultants before leaving to co-found Cantarus. He now leads the strategic and business developments aspects of the business, including MemConnect, and manages a number of key client and partner relationships.

Lee has overseen Cantarus projects for Barclays, Worldpay and Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

On the rare occasions that Lee finds time to take a break from work, he enjoys travelling the globe where he enjoys sampling the local culture and finding new and exotic delicacies to which he is allergic. An avid former Muay Thai boxer, Lee has left the world of close-quarters combat behind him to focus on offering insightful analysis from the comfort of his armchair.

Mike Cundall

Chief Operating Officer

Mike joined Cantarus on its undergraduate placement program in 2009 before graduating from the University of Manchester top of his year with a first-class degree in Computing with Business Applications. Since then, he's led some of our most high-profile projects for the likes of the Institute of Directors, Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Sports Direct, WHSmith and many others.

Mike was previously Head of Professional Services prior to his promotion to COO in 2018. He now oversees day-to-day business operations across the organisation and strives for customer satisfaction in all areas. Mike also works closely with Lee on business growth and strategy.

Outside of work, Mike enjoys a variety of sports including football and tennis – Mike is part of Cantarus’ five-a-side team and is a Sheffield Wednesday season ticket holder.

Team Ethos

 

Our managers are here to steer the ship, but without the rest of our near-50-strong team at Cantarus HQ, we'd be lost at sea. Our people are empowered to take control, make decisions and drive excellence in every area of the business regardless of job title. Our relatively flat hierarchy and supportive culture ensures that we're always focussed on delivering outstanding solutions rather than navigating office politics.

 

Sound Good?

If you're looking for a new opportunity to push your creative and technical limits, we're always interested to talk to enthusiastic individuals.
