Scope Co-Founders

Brewed in 2012, literally over a jug of beer amongst friends, a problem was identified, a solution formed, through the foresight of how the tech future and the digital world will affect the business operations of organisations and the way they work.

Founders and Managing Partners, Brian Ferris and Neville Micallef, with their decades of experience in the corporate world, have successfully created a unique experience for local businesses to join a game-changing revolution.

Problem Solving in an analytical way is the SOUL of Scope – there to Listen, Understand, Solve and Serve – your Tech Partner & Cloud Specialist.

A proposition that is triggering change and evolution in the way businesses approach their operations, manage their data and their strategic decisions, synched with technology and SaaS solutions.

“It is part of our core philosophy at SCOPE to assign a dedicated Solutions Specialist to every client.”

Brian, is an accountant by profession who today focuses on delivering I.T. solutions, a passion he has always enthusiastically shared for a very long time. He is a firm believer in the principle ‘do what you love, love what you do’, whilst insisting that this can only happen when complimented by a sustainable business model.

Brian has extensive experience in the financial control realm, having led one of the largest financial control functions on the island. Throughout the years he has driven a number of system implementation projects cutting across the entire business spectrum. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge from both an operational and financial perspective.
