Sam Garforth has been a cloud architect since the start of 2011. At the start of 2015 he joined Salesforce.Com as a principal solution architect. Before this he worked for IBM, leading the team designing, planning and delivering cross brand cloud solutions to the public sector in the UK and Ireland, directly and through system integrators. Sam was elected to the position of Technical Staff Member TSM, which recognises sustained, distinguished and substantial achievement by IBM‘s most outstanding technical performers, and exceptional contribution to IBM’s technical leadership. For the preceding four years, as a Software Client Architect in the Financial Sector he led technical teams contributing to substantial deals, as well as designing solutions for whitespace investment accounts. Prior to rejoining IBM he was EMEA General Manager of Nastel Technologies which, as the first UK employee, he built into a high revenue IBM and HP business partner providing management software for IBM and other technologies. From 1988-97 Sam worked at IBM Hursley in development and technical sales of WebSphere MQ.

Outside of work Sam was previously very involved in music, leading and managing bands (there are some rough demos from 20 years ago here). Now, with two young children, he is a school governor and enjoys skiing & scuba diving.
