Internet Security Threat Report 2014

When Harry Thuillier sold his reseller business, Fraser Associates, to Action Computer Supplies last year he dropped out of view altogether. He had been one of those oft quoted sorts that crops up rather a lot in the weekly channel press, and he was greatly missed by hacks in need of a sound-bite.

This time he attacked Mel Bouzard, a photographer, outside the Pembroke Castle pub in London’s Primrose Hill. Allegedly. The snapper is now suing DJ Chris Evans for remarks made about him over the air following the disturbance. Allegedly. And the link with our man Thuillier? After selling up and leaving the channel behind him, he became part owner of a number of entertainment establishments, including a restaurant and some pubs. One of which is the Pembroke Castle, Wildman Gallagher’s favourite watering hole. So, with all those rock star’s drinking and fighting in his pub, how’s Thuiller adjusting to the world of pumped up egos and attitude problems? After running a reseller business he’s unlikely to have noticed much of a difference. We at The Register would like to run a regular series of Where Are They Now columns and we need your help.
