Nik Middleton has been in wide-area communications since the mid-eighties. He spent most of the nineties working in the US, where he developed a shareware Microsoft mail to SMTP/POP3 connector that sold some 287,000 copies. He spent six years working for DuPont in VA, developing remote monitoring systems for their global Lycra business. In late 2000, he returned to the UK where he held various senior positions in British Telecom, LogicaCMG, and Computer Science Corp.
In 2005, tired of working in London, he set up his own company (Noble Solutions) providing VoIP solutions in rural Devon, where he now lives with his wife Georgina and three children, Mathew, Vicky, and Isabel. A keen amateur pilot, his favorite place when not in the office is flying over the beautiful Devon countryside.
