Thomas Hanson

Technical Director & Shareholder

I joined Pentagon back in the summer of 2009 and have been lucky enough to have been central to some of the biggest projects the company has undergone (and is to undergo!). I'm Technical Director for the group, responsible for the Products Department and project managing our internal CRM/MRP/CMS software development project ('Kevin') and have done since its inception. I also manage the Northern Accounts and Visualisation Teams - from cloud accounting to VR! I love the variety and being Pentagon's projects man, equally at home on the tools or a complex spreadsheet, an ideas man who makes things happen.

My background is Architecture but I did an English degree before that, I've designed buildings but now design play products and have a six year old boy who's the other half of my life and I adore (plus his mum of course). I love what we do, working here, leading here, my team/s and my colleagues. Our focus is children, and we all care and share the same goal of creating exceptional places for play and learning. I'm proud of individual achievements - the origin of the Pentagon brand and website, our products dept, Kevin - but most of all I'm proud of the company and my team - Jonny Arditti (Product Design Manager), Aaron Reynolds (Visualisation Manager), Andrew Haughey (Management Accountant), Jon Simpson, Ellen Jameson, Richard Ready, Chris Woodward, Flo Bullock, Laura Harvey, Lucie Skeldon, Jane Macdonald, Sam Williamson (Kevin's 'maker'), David Williamson.
