Meet the Team
John– Company founder, Director and lead engineer. An extremely skilled cleanroom engineer even before starting Dataquest, and very knowledgeable about all hard drive data recovery. If you listen closely, you can still hear his distant Liverpool (actually Birkenhead) accent. Read John’s blog posts.
Dan– Data recovery engineer since 2006 and Website Manager. RAID Data Recovery Specialist and responsible for most of the content on this website. Dan is a long time Mac user since getting his first iMac for £50 on eBay, and fan of Apple technology in general. Read Dan’s blog posts.
Alistair– Data recovery engineer. Our newest team member, Alistair has many years of hard drive experience from IBM, Xyratex and Teleplan.
Dataquest International was formed in the late nineties when John left his job testing and manufacturing hard drives at IBM to start his own business. In the years that followed, John founded Dataquest and quickly built a reputation for great customer service and high success rates.
We’ve been recovering data our own way since the 90s. We are not owned by an outside interest and don’t outsource our jobs. This allows us to keep strict control on the privacy and security of your data, and maintain our success rates & customer focus.
We love giving data back to people that thought it was lost forever.
