Within CRG TEC, Neil acts as Key Account Director for our clients ranging from Tech Track 100 rapid growth companies through to Global Corporations. Neil’s played a key part in building and growing a number of recruitment functions and is hugely passionate about doing the right thing by way of customers and candidates. Neil believes being straight and honest is always best for all sides and this has led to many customers becoming friends and long term partners with CRG TEC.

Outside of work, it’s about football (retired), Everton FC (infuriating), playing the guitar (rock) and travelling the World with his family and friends.

Stephen Morris Director & Co-Founder
Stephen partners Neil as the Director and Co- Founder of CRG TEC.

He hails from County Fermanagh and moved to Liverpool to study a Degree in Business Management before embarking on his career in Recruitment in 2011.

Having always had a strong entrepreneurial ambition, in the summer of 2017, Stephen & Neil partnered with industry leaders Ian Munro, Tristan Ramus and Jamie Webb to launch CRG TEC with the aim to bring their quality and service lead recruitment expertise to the Technology, Engineering and Communications sectors across the UK & Europe.

As our Director, Stephen drives the operational side of CRG TEC. When not working on the business, Stephen is hands on as our Recruitment Director across the Telecoms, Technology and Engineering sectors.

Stephen works as an extended part of our client businesses to help them attract and retain talent in the most competitive market the UK has seen. He uses a straightforward, honest, non salesy and no nonsense consultative approach to recruitment, alongside a proven track record of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to securing the talent you need.

Outside of work, Liam can usually be found watching Everton through his fingers due their repeatedly inept performances, attempting to still play football and throwing weights around a gym (not literally, that would just be dangerous).

Most enjoyably though, spending time with his wife, his little boy, two little girls and dog Armin – named after legendry DJ Armin Van Buuren (much to the annoyance of the rest of his family!).
