Seb Francis

50% of the dynamic duo that founded Titus, Seb brings enthusiasm and energy to everything he does and always drives us to reach our potential. All though still only young, Seb has been working with Moodle since the age of 19 and within that time has been fortunate to work on Moodle projects across countless organisations around the world.

Seb embodies the word entrepreneur, and one of his other ventures away from Titus is a premium Tequila brand called Hacien.

Mike Bennett

Co-founder & Director

The other, and we’re sure he would say better half of the founding duo. It was in Mike’s house 8 years ago that the idea for Titus was founded. With his strength on the technical side, Mike is heavily involved in the day to day runnings of the tech team, particularly when it comes to areas of development.

Mike comes from Durham in the northeast; you’re probably wondering if he’s a Sunderland or Newcastle fan. Well, the answer is Tottenham for some reason.
