About Tom

Tom Fosdick is a Technical Product Leader with more than 30 years’ industry experience. Beginning as a digital electronics research technician Tom has built up expertise at every level, from writing assembler code for embedded devices through to product management, delivery and customer relationships.

For more than 20 years Tom has specialised in providing advanced technology to front line Emergency Services both in the UK and internationally.

Tom is currently employed by a major international brand as the technical authority for UK control room software development.

Previously Tom was instrumental in developing Seed Software from a small project at The University of Hull to a leading provider of technology to the Emergency Services.

At Seed, Tom was the architect of Seed’s flagship BRIGID Command and Control product. His leadership took the project from a small prototype to becoming the primary call and incident management system for 3 of Britain’s Fire and Rescue Services.

Prior to that, Tom was involved with numerous projects for the emergency services, ranging from in-vehicle embedded systems through to GIS, visualisation and SIS.

Tom has been a remote worker for more than a decade, based primarily at his home in rural Suffolk, but occasionally venturing to other locations in the UK and EU.

When not sat in front of the computer, Tom is difficult to keep still.

He can often be found out and about: in the Suffolk countryside on a bike or in his favourite car, at any number of motor sport events, supporting his local pub or in the workshop making “something real, something I can actually touch”.

Tom can be found on most social networks…
