“I love solving your IT problems”

Ron Weatherup - Lugo IT


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!
