Brennan IT CEO, Stephen Sims says Tinning had more than 25 years of experience in the tech industry and was well-respected not just by his colleagues by all their distributors and partners.

HP Enterprise channel sales manager, Nick Lambrou affirms Tinning was a genuine man.

“His dedication to his work and his family, and, in particular, his passion for our industry is something unfortunately not everyone is aware of,” Lambrou says. “He was an ambassador and one of the less well-known guys in our industry, but his contributions were as big as his heart.
