Tony has been working in the ICT industry in the area of messaging and directory services for over 20 years. He has worked in the UK, Switzerland and Australia and now calls Wellington home. Despite breaking the plastic keypad on his Sinclair ZX81 while in his teens and later having been exposed to an early Microsoft Exchange Server 4.0 Beta, Tony somehow made it into the Microsoft world and became passionate about Exchange, Active Directory and more recently Azure. He has been a recipient of the MVP award for consecutive years since 2002 and is a current Enterprise Mobility MVP. In his spare time he runs the AD/AAD focused forum at www.activedir.org and blogs at www.open-a-socket.com.
