Company Story

Incorporated in summer 2006, TOMMIE Systems Limited is the product of a demerger from Monitor Media, a long established and highly respected web development company based in Surrey, England. It was actually Monitor Media that originally developed TOMMIE back in 2000. Since then TOMMIE has been constantly refined, improved and grown, but as Monitor Media's bespoke web application development work for blue chip clients also grew, the decision was taken to formally and legally separate the two lines of business, for the greater good of both - hence the demerger.

TOMMIE Systems is now a successful company in its own right. Whilst TOMMIE is presently our only product, we have exciting plans for launching an additional office admin product in future. This will be developed to help customers meet a growing demand for high standards of ISO compliance and will be a close strategic fit with our existing web-based office admin system, and a logical and welcome addition to the family.

Meet The Team

Robert Simmons, BA Hons
Co-Founder and CEO

After graduating in Business Studies with Marketing, Robert spent most of the 80's agency side, account directing Sony and Guinness amongst others, helping launch disruptive and market changing products like Handycam and Draught Guinness in Cans. In the early 90's he worked as an independent marketing consultant before co-founding Monitor Media in 1995. A strong, profitable and multi-award winning digital solutions company, and one with considerable commercial and strategic insight, Monitor Media became part of leading e-solutions company CACI in 2009. The newly merged business was listed in NMA's Top 5 list of UK Design and Build companies, producing sophisticated websites and online applications for blue chip enterprises such as Royal Bank of Scotland, Coca-Cola, Michelin, Alpha Airports Group and BAA, to name but a few. Robert stepped down as CEO for Monitor Media after 16 years and, since the 2006 demerger, has been CEO for TOMMIE Systems.

Iain Frerichs, BA Hons
Co-Founder and CTO

Graduating in Engineering Sciences from the University of Oxford, Iain's first employer of note was Logica. A star programmer, he was instrumental in setting up and running the main database for the United Nations at just 23 years of age. He went on to be lead developer for pharmaceutical giants Wellcome and Merck Sharp and Dohme. Iain met Paul whilst working at Logica and was Monitor Media's first recruit back in 1996. Since then Iain has been responsible for the technology and security behind major e-commerce websites for, amongst others, RBS Insurance, Coca-Cola, Alpha Airports Group and Michelin. He is also expert in the design and build of powerful, robust, scalable web hosting solutions. Iain has worked on the TOMMIE product since its inception in 2000 and has held the position of CTO since our company's inception in 2006.

Andy Mungham, Bsc. Hons
Development Director

Graduating with Honours in Computer Science, Andy joined Robert and Iain at Monitor Media in 2000 and immediately began shaping sophisticated websites for major blue chip organisations. Starting as an already talented developer, his broader skillset and natural feel for system design saw him rapidly promoted, through senior development roles into Technical Project Manager ones. As well as championing ISO standards for quality and security, he has spent most of the last few years leading the development of substantial e-commerce and business critical systems, notably in the insurance sector for clients such as Direct Line, Churchill, Allianz and RSA. Significantly, the entirety of his 13 year digital career has been spent alongside his fellow TOMMIE Systems Directors.
