Rowland studied electrical engineering at Kingston University and later applied these skills of innovation, mathematics, design and research to the IT industry specializing in infrastructure and software design.
He is dogmatic in his approach to problem solving and will always find a solution – it’s probably just as well that he can survive on just five hours sleep!
He is now CEO at Email Hippo, leading the team in designing and engineering new applications for email verification.
When he’s not working you’ll find him immersed in family life or in the sea. He’s an experienced scuba diver with over 3,000 dives logged, is qualified PADI and BSAC instructor and also has a number of technical diving qualifications under his belt.

Working With The Local Community
Our offices are based in Devon and Cornwall (UK) which are areas noted mainly for tourist destinations and not traditionally associated with the IT industry.
As a growing IT business in a relatively isolated and rural location, we believe it is ethically right to use local staff and suppliers wherever possible in order to contribute towards the
prosperity of the local economy.
We therefore work with local suppliers, supporting organisations and hire staff locally where possible.
