Gav Winter

Gav is Non Exec Director of Ten10 (formerly The Test People Centre4 Testing) a nearly £30m turnover, 350 people business specialising in testing software and understanding operational risk of deploying IT systems. They are the UKs largest privately owned pure play testing consultancy, and now in the worlds top 5. This is a long way from 2006 when Gav left Accenture and set up The Test People with three other colleagues. They joined him in 2007/8, and the four of them won some major accounts such as William Hill, Hitachi & UKAR early on which gave them a sound footing to steadily grow the business up to sales of £11m. Gav worked in the business till 2011 and since then has worked on the business after completing the Goldman Sachs 10KSB programmes at LUBS & Oxford University. In 2014 they engaged private equity house, Living Bridge (formerly ISIS Equity), as an investor and in 2015 merged with Centre4 Testing a company already on their portfolio. Gav won the title of the IOD’s Yorkshire Director of the Year in 2015 (runner up in 2014 to Gary Verity) plus the SME title in 2014 & 2015. Ten10 now has over 20 awards to their name.
