Ron Weatherup.

Managing Director

Profile of Ron Weatherup

I studied Accounting & Finance at university. In my final year at Edinburgh I developed a real interest in computers and, after completing my degree, went on to study computing further, achieving two Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) qualifications. Following this, I did some freelance work for the Scottish Sage Accounting Centre where I was quickly taken on full time. At the Sage Accounting Centre I was involved in a variety of migrations, as Sage had recently acquired other software providers Hartley, CSM and Apex. I jumped in feet first being involved in installations, migrations, training and ongoing support. At the same time I was implementing IT networks from the ground up for clients based on Windows 2000. I really enjoyed designing and implementing networks on which Accountants could run their software.
In 2003, I formed Lugo (then ScotICT) with the backing of a few clients that were willing to work with me, on the basis we would not be a one man band forever! My ambition was set and we have been growing and helping all sorts of businesses since then.

I love all aspects of managing Lugo, from all the technologies we get involved with, to the staff nights out when I like to socialise!

I live in Linlithgow in West Lothian which is a great little town with a real community spirit and have three children with my wife Ciara. When I am not busy at work, I am busy at home with the family……or DIY!!!
Hobbies… I love my work!

What Customers Say About Me

Ron has looked after our systems for many years. He is ever cheerful, does not bamboozle us with technobabble, and gets the job done without fuss, at a fair price. Highly recommended.
Clive Scott, Barrie Scott & Co
Ron and his team have been a vital support to our growing business for over 12 years. His guidance on our IT systems has been invaluable and his knowledge of the particular needs of accounting practices has been especially useful.
Sheila Boardman, Paterson Boyd
As a firm of accountants, robust IT systems are vital to our business. Ron is now an essential part of the computer group at Johnston Smillie helping us to set our IT strategy. He is an innovator, as well as being practical and an excellent problem solver, and will always strive to get to the best solution for us. We recently moved office and, thanks to Ron and the rest of the Lugo team’s assistance, all 35 of our team, our servers and printers were up and running first thing on day one after the move – it was business as usual for us and our clients!
Anne Melville, Johnston Smillie
