Patrick Buckland Director
Patrick Buckland showed his entrepreneurial streak when he started selling digital watches at the age of 15 whilst his friends were mowing other peoples’ lawns.
With his first published game at the age of 18 in 1982, Patrick came in at the very start of the games industry. By 1994, with 26 products to his name including best-selling games such as Crystal Quest, Patrick founded Stainless in order to build a solid base for the future.
22 years later, Stainless has been proud to boast up to 100 staff, and is now looking stronger than ever, having recently bought back the rights of its 90’s best-selling game Carmageddon. Stainless is one of biggest and longest-lasting independent video games development companies in the UK.
Having been CEO of Stainless for 21 years, in 2015 Patrick stepped sideways into a chairman role to allow Jan Lindner to further the corporate development of the company.
Aside from Stainless, Patrick has also been a director and shareholder in a variety of other ventures, mainly in the video games fields. These include Ego, Bowfell Developments, Happy Soccer Boss and MotorGenie.
Most recently, Patrick was one of the original “gang-of-eight” UK businessmen who bought back the rights to the sportscar manufacturer TVR from Nikolai Smolensky. The company is now progressing towards manufacture of a new range of models.
Matt Edmunds Director
Following graduation with a BSc in Business Computing Systems, Matt became a programmer at British Telecom’s research laboratories for two years until, in 1995, he got a call from Patrick Buckland and became Stainless Games first employee.
Although starting as a programmer, Matt’s business-based degree proved to be the ideal launch platform for rising through the ranks of management and, within a few years became a company executive.
Since becoming Stainless’s COO in the early 2000s, Matt has not only performed the day-to-day running of the company, but has planned and overseen growth from a team of 6 to, at one point, over 100 staff. As well as the COO role he has, at times, performed the traditional CFO role, that of Studio Head and the head of HR. Matt is also involved in business development, contract negotiation and relationship management.
