About Trade Interchange

The company was founded in the UK with an initial focus on fully-managed eAuctions. Since then, we have added more modules to our proprietary ARCUS® software, meaning that all initial tenders, negotiation, sourcing projects, product information, new product development, supplier information, contracts and performance management can be performed in one streamlined solution.

The ARCUS® platform is delivered in a modular format that can be implemented standalone, in any combination or in any order, and supports many prestigious blue-chip clients around the world. ARCUS® Connect, our native API, allows integration with other solutions, ensuring all information can be shared across systems, eliminating the need to re-key data.

Fast to deploy and simple to use, the software is developed in our head office in Teesside, and supports many leading brands including Sodexo, Fridays, Domino’s Pizza, AAK, Whitbread, and Circle Healthcare.

Co-Founder & Managing Director

Hi, I’m Mike, the Co-Founder and Managing Director at Trade Interchange. Having worked in IT for more than 20 years, I gained experience in a diverse range of industries, from manufacturing and retail to construction and law.

Outside of work, I endure the unrelenting pain of supporting Middlesbrough Football Club, but I retain my sanity by spending time with friends and family and cycling on weekends.



Co-Founder & Director

Hi, I’m Tim, Co-Founder and Director at Trade Interchange. I’ve been with the company from when it was in its infancy, building and developing Trade Interchange products and services and managing our relationships with some of our key customers.

I enjoy keeping myself fit with circuit training and cycling. Whenever I can I’ll head to the mountains to fulfil my passion for skiing. I like to relax by exploring the world through its cuisine, cooking and eating all kinds of dishes.



Co-Founder & Director

Hi, I’m Andy, Co-Founder and Director of Trade Interchange. My entrepreneurial career path began when I left university and set-up my own seafood import and export business.

Out of the office, I enjoy an active social life, and keep myself physically active with cycling, golf and skiing whenever I can. My three kids also help to keep me on my toes, so I try to relax by watching a bit of sport, reading, cooking and listening to music.




Hi, I’m Mike, non-executive Chairman of Trade Interchange. My role is to work with my fellow directors to help them determine and then deliver the growth strategy of the business.

Outside of work, you’ll often find me on the golf course (usually in the rough!) or spending time with my wife and our two children at our home in Cheshire.
