From humble beginnings from a kitchen table in London, to a business with four global offices and a footprint covering every continent, learn more about who we are.
In 2009 Mark Orchison started 9ine from his kitchen table in Greenwich, London. Since then, Mark has led the business to become the leading independent K-12 technology and compliance consultancy in the UK and internationally. In 2020 we launched our software application for our clients across the UK, Europe, Middle-East, Asia, South Africa and North America.
We pride ourselves on the investment in our staff and clients. Being owner managed, our culture and values are tied to our Founder & CEO, rather than the priorities of unknown shareholders.
We have grown to be globally recognised and respected. We have offices in the UK, India, Canada and Singapore.
We are the leading education technology consultancy in compliance and security for schools. We specialise in providing technology and compliance solutions, working with a wide range of school types and sizes. Our clients trust us to guide them through their compliance obligations and support them in ensuring that their systems are safe and secure.
There are no boundaries at 9ine and all of our employees and teams are equal. We’re a diverse team and we are fortunate enough to have a great mix of brilliant thinkers and doers. We are only as successful as our people, because 9ine is a people based business. Although we have technical products and services, we only have them as a result of our team’s hard work.
Our long-term goal is to create a healthy and motivating environment for the professional as well as personal development of our people. It is important to us to be a responsible company that treats people fairly. We support the creativity, diversity and development of responsible thinking to ensure that our people understand the impact our activities have on our clients and ultimately their customers and society.
