Our Leadership

David Connors

Managing Director

David founded Codify in 1996 and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. He leads Codify’s work as a Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and sets the company’s strategic direction to ensure the right systems and processes are in place to meet customers’ needs.

Ben Parker


Ben brings an infrastructure focus to his work leading Codify’s Plan and Migrate pillars. He has worked with Microsoft technologies since 2004, though he’s a lifelong IT hobbyist who got his start programming games from a book onto an Apple 2e. Ben’s experience working with customers and running a business gives him an empathetic perspective to the business challenges organisations’ face and enables him to instinctively identify their most appropriate paths to success.

Dan van Eck

Principle Consultant

Dan brings 18 years’ experience in software development, systems building, DevOps and workload modernisation through Azure PaaS to the Codify team. His areas of focus include creating systems automations that proactively monitor Codify customers’ workloads, integrating DevOps throughout the cloud lifecycle, and providing architectural and engineering support to customers to help maximise their Azure investments.

Our Partnership with Microsoft

We often say that, at Codify, we’re so serious about Azure that we don’t even know how to spell AWS. But there’s a reason we’ve invested so heavily in developing a long-term relationship with Microsoft and our deep specialisation in Microsoft Azure.

Simply put, we believe it to be the best fit for enterprise users balancing the need for hybrid and on-prem solutions, who benefit from the common authorisation backbone with offerings like Microsoft 365.

A few of the credentials we’ve earned within Microsoft’s ecosystem include:

Microsoft Gold-Certified Partner in Cloud Platform
Advanced Specialisation in Microsoft Azure
Tier 1/Direct Cloud Services Provider
Member of the Advanced Support for Partner program
