About us

Meet the team!

Mark Lonnen

Managing Director

Mark started his IT career in 1988 when the personal computer had only just been invented. Working as a field service engineer, then a system support specialist and finally a software developer gave Mark a really in depth knowledge of the IT world, but he’s always preferred being on-site with customers and working face to face. In 2002 Mark founded Expert IT Solutions to bring friendly knowledgeable and professional IT services to local businesses.

Outside work Mark enjoys running over the local hills, cycling and exploring caves.

Graeme Emms


Graeme and Mark both met while they were working as computer field service engineers back in 1990, Graeme remained in this position until 2007 when a career change saw him installing and supporting specialist CCTV in some interesting locations for 3 years before joining with Mark at Expert IT in 2010.

Graeme enjoys working on-site with customers and providing solutions to IT challenges.

Graeme’s leisure time is spent refurbishing classic cars and maintaining his mature garden.

Tom Lockie

Senior Support Engineer

Tom joined Expert IT on a part time basis in 2012, now working four days per week Tom has responsibility for the day to day running of our telephone and remote support and is one of the friendly voices you'll hear if you call us.

On his days off Tom enjoys hillwalking, riding his motorbike and spending time with his grandchildren.

David Barz

Support Engineer

David has been with Expert IT since 2017 and with previous experience in IT support he's often involved in some of our trickier jobs!  Primarily based in the office you are likely to speak to David if you call, although we do let him out to visit customers from time to time.

A keen photographer with an interest in exploring the less well visited parts of Scotland he's got some fascinating pictures in his album!

Years of Experience!

There are four of us – led by Mark and Graeme – with bags of experience in IT. But not just IT – we’ve worked with businesses large and small for over 20 years so we know what makes yours tick. And, because we talk your language – not computer-speak – we’ve found that anyone in a business, from MD down, is comfortable dealing with us

Skilled Professionals

This is what we do:

  • Charge very affordable rates
  • Let you pay for support just when you need it, or choose our affordable monthly support plan 
  • Talk to you in plain English
  • Liaise with other IT providers for you so you can understand what they’re talking about

We are not like others

This is what we DON’T do:

  • Leaving you stranded
  • Land you with large and unexpected bills
  • Lock you into complicated support contracts
  • Use technical language to baffle you
  • Make you spend money if you don’t have to
  • Talk you into spending more than you need
  • Recommend over-sophisticated and costly hardware
  • Drink, smoke or swear (well, almost!)
