Piers du Pré began his professional career as an airline pilot with BOAC and British Airways, flying the Boeing 707 world-wide.
In addition to route flying Piers was asked to join the airline’s training section where he became responsible for pilot, command and management training.
Business start-up and growth
An idea sparked in 1979 and Piers created the first private Telecoms in the UK, du Pré plc.
As the business expanded, telecom companies Solar and Eurotel were acquired. When Piers saw the potential of telecoms becoming IP based, an IT division was created.
Becoming involved with fee-paying schools, Double First Ltd was acquired for its Management Information Systems (MIS) software and in 2013, Accounting Office Software Ltd was added to the du Pré Group for its highly accomplished accounting software.
du Pré (Guernsey) Ltd
Piers and his wife Lin moved to Guernsey in March 2013 where they began du Pré (Guernsey) Ltd, a business consultancy and management training company.
This has led to being asked for help with sales, marketing, photography, websites and their construction.
Sharing our knowledge and watching the fruit that comes directly from our consultancy, is so rewarding.
