Abbeytek is run by Gary Whitehead, a highly experienced software developer with many years of programming under his belt. He started in the late 1970s, teaching himself basic programming on a Commodore Pet. In 1989 he graduated from York University with a degree in Computer Science and since then he has gained a wealth of experience in many varied sectors of the software and engineering business. His career started with 8 years at Spectra-Tek Ltd. building oil / gas metering systems followed by 2 years at Unidec Systems, designing, selling and installing PCs and networks.
After this, he founded Abbeytek in 1998 in Rosedale Abbey, a picturesque village in the heart of the North York Moors. In 2000, the company moved to larger premises in Norton, a small town near York and since 2004, Abbeytek has occupied a dedicated building in this North Yorkshire town.
