’Justin was the driving force behind the creation of Guardian

Unlimited.



’He was a great people manager and knew exactly how to deal with anyone,

from sales execs to board members.



’One thing to watch out for was his ’daily idea’. Every day he would

announce an abstract thought that had occurred to him and then say:

’let’s make it happen’. That’s indicative of another of Justin’s traits

- he would point us in the right direction and let us work out the

solution, which taught me to think laterally.’
