Meet the homeplay Team

Best in class technical skills, a fanatical approach to customer service and generally unhappy with our portrait photos.


James Ratcliffe

Managing Director

James founded Homeplay in 2006 through his passion for helping families with their home technology. If he’s not advising our clients on their home technology systems then he’s busy working out new ways of delighting them, either through researching and testing new products or refining our procedures and systems of working. James lives with his wife Charlotte (below) and their two young girls in Weybridge. On the rare occasion he has any spare time he like to play tennis. 


Tom Jarvis

Operations Manager

Tom gets things done - he's responsible for the practical aspects of looking after our clients, either by running their projects or providing them with fantastic aftercare. Utterly unflappable, Tom is one of those guys who just quietly gets on with the minimum of fuss and doesn’t settle for anything less than perfection. Tom lives in Maidenhead with his wife and two sons and is kept busy renovating his house a room at a time. 


Toby Perryman

Lead Installation Engineer

Toby is our lead installation engineer and has a fastidious attention to detail. Having learned his trade in the broadcast industry as a rack-builder, Toby's quality of work is second to none. Toby lives with his girlfriend on a farm in Maidenhead.



Joe Dormer

Team Assistant 

Joe runs everything in our office, from answering the phones to managing our social media to looking after our stock management system. Joe’s a huge music fan and spends most of his spare time buying/selling and experimenting with music and musical equipment.


Ryan Baron

Installation Engineer

Ryan works alongside Toby to make our installations fly. Ryan trained as an electrician but has found his true passion working in home technology. A keen football fan, he spends his spare time tinkering with his custom-built PC or watching his beloved Arsenal.



Charlotte Ratcliffe

HR and Events Manager

Charlotte has spent much of her working life at a senior level at London’s largest healthcare recruitment specialist. She’s now responsible for making sure our team members are happy, well trained and well looked after whilst also helping with the organisation of events at our Sunbury showroom. Charlotte is married to James and loves running, live music and listening to podcasts.
