Ashley spent 4 years in the Army going through Basic Training and medical training from 2012-2013 and arriving at 1 Armoured Medical Regiment (formerly 1 Medical Regiment) in December 2013 in Bergen-Hohne Germany. Whilst at 1 AMR Ashley represented the regiment in Basketball and skied as part of the Army Medical Services ski team.
After leaving H.M. Armed Forces in September 2016 Ashley moved back to the UK to begin a full-time degree in Information Technology Systems and Applications at University Centre Colchester and graduated in 2019 with an upper second-class degree, awarded by University of Essex. Having built his own custom high-end computers from a young age and being a computer gaming enthusiast a career in I.T. was a natural progression after the Army. He is a keen skier, enjoys videos games, is a self-confessed petrol head, and keeps fit by playing Badminton.
Ashley joined Fusion Technology Solutions in the middle of 2019 in a part-time role having previously ambushed one of the M.D.’s in town just after they’d finished lunch! This left an impression, and whilst he wasn’t the right candidate at the time, it paid dividends a year later when Fusion contacted him again to see if he was still looking for work. As a result, Ashley has now kicked off his full-time I.T. career with the help of Tim and James and looks forward to developing his knowledge and skills with the team.
Ashley was married to Francesca in February 2018 and they are expecting their first child on the 31st
