Our Team

The Coreo team have a wealth of knowledge and experience that spans beyond technology. With former ecologists, environmental and, of course, computer scientists among our ranks we understand exactly what it takes to make your project a success.  We might just want to talk about birds or newts for a while though, if that’s okay?

Dave Kilbey

Founder and CEO

Dave’s main passion is conservation. He’s besotted by birds but equally fond of pretty much every plant and creature we share the planet with (although he’s a bit undecided on tapeworms and ticks). Dave started out as an ecologist but his career led him into the realms of IT and academia. In 2011 he was fortunate enough to bring his skills and interests together to found Natural Apptitude. Having found his ecological niche, he’s been on a mission to improve data collection in environmentally focused sectors ever since – and hopefully help save the planet in the process.

Joe Woodhouse


Joe’s screen always looks like something out of the Matrix. No, wait, that’s wrong. Joe’s four screens always look like something out of the Matrix. And as the chief architect and developer of Coreo, Joe is a key target. Cute little ninja assassins in blue suits are never far away. When he’s not building amazing software and helping people save the world, Joe loves spending time with his 3 children, running marathons and cooking. And when he’s not doing all of that, he’s head coach for several girl football teams.

Corin Varney


Corin is so deeply involved in everything related to Coreo that he’s now known as Corino. APIs and databases are his staple, but variety is the spice of life and he also snacks on making updates to the app and web portal. When not crafting new features and functionality, Corin(o) can be found cycling, reading and gaming, as well as cooking up a storm in the kitchen.

James Meechan


James is largely a front-end developer and has worked on sites and apps including Swift Mapper, Beach Track and INNS Mapper. He loves nothing more than camping trips, preferably near the sea or a river you can swim in. When he’s not doing that or helping the planet with his code, he loves walking too, preferably in the hills and mountains. Apparently, the kids are a bit small for dragging up some of these at the moment – but that hasn’t stopped him trying.


CMM – Chief Mischief Maker

Maddy’s main role is finding new and inventive ways to Zoom bomb important meetings. In her spare time Maddy likes chasing Wood Pigeons and avoiding going for walks (I know!)
