Monty successfully set up ventures in tree surgery, a plumbing and heating engineering business and a business that offered company clay pigeon shooting days.
In 1994, Monty became a member of a fledgling software development company writing sophisticated software applications for major banks and blue chip organisations.

In 1996 the company relocated to North Devon and Monty set up a helpdesk offering support for the daily needs of 80 plus clients with approximately 300 users in the UK, South Africa, United States and Hong Kong. In 2007 as part of a company merger the business moved to the south Devon town of Ashburton.
