Founded in 2009, Alliants is a growing Technology Consultancy and Software Engineering company who allow businesses new and established to make the most of their time and investment using digital solutions. With bases in Southampton and Central Toronto, we also have distributed teams of designers, consultants and developers across Europe and South America.
We're a global company with a start-up mentality.
Tristan spends his time working with top teams on the challenges of running a business in the digital age.
Following 10 years at Andersen Consulting working at board level with some of the world’s leading companies (including Prudential, American Express and British Airways), Tristan joined Opodo, a leading online travel agency, as Distribution Director. While at Opodo, he recognised the opportunity to build a consulting and development agency that could support businesses in reaching new audiences in a dynamic digital age. After 18 months of growing this business in the UK and Romania, Tristan started working closely with a specialist recruitment firm to secure the specific skills needed, and in 2009 the businesses merged and Alliants was born.
Since then, Tristan has been focused on building out the consulting, recruitment and development model that defines Alliants, working with household brands including Virgin, Travelport, Chartis, Holiday Extras and many more. In his spare time, he tries to fit in as much tennis, cricket, cycling, football and skiing as possible around a busy family life with three awesome kids.

Nick’s early background was in starting and building fast growing IT services and Staffing firms - prior to founding Alliants he built and sold three businesses - two in staffing/recruitment (£15M t/o, £3.5M t/o) and one in IP Networking Services (£28M t/o).
We’re a close-knit family of digital experts from diverse backgrounds, and community and adventure are in our DNA. Friday mornings in Southampton you’ll likely find us paddle-boarding down the river next to the office before gathering for a weekly bacon sandwich. We eat together, travel together, share our challenges and celebrate our successes together.
If you like the sound of that, get in touch or drop in and say hello - we’re always on the lookout for people to join our growing team.
