Katy Upton

Fortitude Nicsa Global Ltd
Katy Upton is an Entrepreneur, Commercial Director and Co-Founder of Fortitude Nicsa Global, an IT Managed Services company. Katy started her career in the legal profession but switched to various sales roles in IT services before making the move to IT Services Operations Management. Having spent her professional career working for other businesses whilst also juggling childcare, it was in 2016 that she was able to spot a gap in the IT Services market to set up Fortitude Global. Whilst growing Fortitude Global, Katy’s commercial strengths helped her to negotiate a partnership with Nicsa IT Services (APAC region), giving rise to Fortitude Nicsa Global in 2018. Since then, the business has gone from strength to strength delivering IT services worldwide and a track record of operating across every continent. Katy’s experience in Operations management has allowed FNG to rapidly recruit, train and retain staff in line with their growth whilst maintaining a motivated and successful team. Outside of her work, Katy is a Mum to four children, a keen runner, and a certified Les Mills group exercise instructor who regularly teaches various programmes including weights based, high intensity and dance classes at several sports facilities throughout the Derbyshire area.

Gemma Cogan

Orangetheory Fitness
I am a mum of two teenagers, who definitely keep me on my toes. I had been working in Logistics for 20yrs, working my way up to Head of Client Services for the network. An opportunity then came up at the gym I adored going to, so took the jump and have never looked back. I get to say I work in in my favorite place, plus I still get to train just as much which is an added bonus.
