Getting to know Vapour – Tim Mercer

At Vapour, we’re as renowned for our people as we are our robust cloud services. That’s why we regularly put one of our colleagues in the spotlight so you can learn more about their role, their skills and even their annoying habits! First up it’s CEO Tim Mercer…
