First question

Who are you and what is your role?

My name is Thomas Deveney and I’m the company's only in-house web developer. I handle all website requests from small tweaks to full site builds. I also dabble in graphic design whenever the team needs a hand!

First question

Your role is a new one for Square in the Air, how will an in-house website offering help our clients, new and old?

I found my love for web development right at the start of Sixth Form and from there decided to take a design degree in Leeds to further follow this weird obsession. I joined SITA a little over 10 months ago and I have to say it’s flown by! We have worked with some great clients so far and I hope that in the future we can tackle some mammoth projects to really showcase the company and put the Square in the Air web development service on the map.

An in-house website offering greatly benefits both new and existing clients in numerous ways. Websites are always the first port of call for any research as well as key information that people may need. By expanding our offering, we can provide clients with a full design service, and really accelerate a brand's potential!

First question

This year you went to Cheltenham to watch the Gold Cup live, how did you get on and what was your highlight?

This year was the first time I visited Cheltenham. My parents are regular horse racing goers, and I was lucky enough to be situated in a box with none other than Ray Parlour, Alan Brazil and Chris Hughes. Thankfully the weather made for a great day of racing, as well as the complimentary Guinness throughout the day. The highlight of the day though was not the Guinness in fact but watching the great Galopin Des Champs charge home in The Gold Cup to bring home the bacon!

Fourth question

Charlton Athletic FC is your club of choice, what’s the story there and how do you feel their season has gone?

It’s a short story but a long time of suffering. Not only is Charlton my local team, but it was also my dad’s team of choice, so my mind was made up at birth. From play-off final wins at Wembley to cold, dark drubbings away in Sheffield, this club does it all! Apart from the fact that we finished midtable in League One and that all our best players are either on loan or coming to the end of their contracts, I remain hopeful that next season with Dean Holden at the helm we can pick up six points off Pompey. We’re also the only club in south London to win the FA Cup.

Fifth question

You’re quite the traveller looking at your Instagram page, what’s been the destination at the top of your list so far and what’s still to come?

I’m very lucky that my girlfriend is my personal travel agent so wherever we go it’s all down to her! We recently went to an island called Milos in Greece which was spectacular. A very quiet but naturally stunning place with plenty of untouched beaches and amazing seafood. It also has several picturesque fishing villages and sunset viewpoints. I would highly recommend it to anyone stuck looking for a place to go!

This year, we will be making our way to the south of France to a place called Antibes, situated in between Monaco and Nice. I’m really looking forward to getting away and escaping reality for five days with my loved ones!

Sixth question

On Sunday’s you play in your local football team, what position do you play and what style of footballer do you compare yourself to?

Former Bert Holloway trophy winners, FC Barka. There’s nothing better than meeting up with your mates on a Sunday for a competitive kick about and a couple pints after! To be honest, I’ve played rugby since the age of six and only in the past couple of years made a slight transition to football which I’ve been enjoying. I’ve been described as ‘predictably unpredictable’ by my fellow teammates which is a fair assessment of abilities. If I had to compare myself to a player, it would be Pedro Neto, but comparison is the thief of joy.

Seventh question

Who is your favourite band of all time?

Oasis. They created music that will last for generations. Noel is a musical genius and Liam was, and arguably still is, the best frontman in the world. During my time in school, I was obsessed with Liam’s confidence and rascal attitude that inspired me to become more confident within myself. I’ve watched Supersonic about 400 times and have around 25 different vinyls from their albums of EPs they released prior to all the fame. One day I hope they get together so that people from my generation can experience a fraction of what it used to be like in the 90s and early 2000s. Finally, my top three songs go in this order: Bring it on down, Acquiesce, Live forever.

Notable mention to The Stone Roses and Blossoms!

First question

And finally - what’s your lucky number on the roulette wheel?

0, 11, and 30 are the ones I go for if I were to play. But my days of online casinos are behind me and I generally only fancy a bet at the racecourse.
