Louis Georgiou, Code Computerlove
1. Tell us a little about you? (work, family, location etc)
I’m a husband and father of two young children, aged 10 and 5. We live in Altrincham and I take the Metrolink to work in Manchester City Centre every day. I’m the Managing Director of Code Computerlove, we’re a digital agency with around 100 staff, based in the Northern Quarter.
2. Your fave spot in Manchester?
My favourite area doesn’t exist anymore, well since the Manchester bomb it’s now the Triangle near Selfridges. Back when I was a student it was a flea market called the Corn Exchange (a bit like Affleck’s Palace) and it’s where I collected all my Beatles & 60’s records and imported Japanese video games
3. How would you describe your ideal working week?
I love being in the office, but I know I’m more productive when I’m totally by myself. So my ideal working week has me working from home for a day or two, speeding through a backlog of work I’ve been meaning to get to for a while – it’s very satisfying!
4. Fave Manchester band/song?
Tough question as there’s so many! I’d say The Stone Roses are my favourite Manchester band, but my favourite song by a Manchester band is ‘Hymn from a Village’ by James.
5. Why does flexible working appeal to you?
I’m probably a workaholic, I love what I do and so work is intricately woven into my life. I’ve got a family and 2 young children so I do need to juggle my work and family lives so I need flexibility to be able to do that.
