Who We Are

Founded in 2013, SchoolsBuddy founders Gary & David are on a mission…

Gary Hector | Co-Founder of SchoolsBuddy

Gary Hector
Co-Founder

SchoolsBuddy first took over my life in 2013, when chatting with David after a round of golf sparked an idea that first started as a solution for sports teams but soon developed into the perfect tool for schools.

With a technical background it has always appealed to me to help solve problems through technology, but having always just advised on tech that was already available this is the first time that I would be developing the solution.

Finding an experienced coder, Paul Ledger, set us off on a road which we have been travelling for the past 5 years. I’ve since realised there is always a new way to improve the system, a new module to build or a way to make things work more efficiently, so we never rest!

It's my mission

… to continue developing SchoolsBuddy, by listening to the schools we work with to ensure that our system is the best out there by far and the feedback we have had so far means we are certainly heading in the right direction.
