Eva Rickett - Henley Scan Ltd

I’m Eva and I am Swedish. I met my husband in Sweden as a graduate trainee with Ericsson in 1985, hence moving to the UK.

I’m a wife, mother, daughter and sister. I have lived in three countries and have moved over 20 times in my life. I lost my ‘real’ dad when I was 11 and have ‘lost’ people every time I’ve moved. Currently two of my children live abroad and we are very much an international family.

I think this is why keeping and preserving memories, stories, photos and films from my childhood and life was so important. And that is how Henley Scan started. We digitised our own, then friends, then family and then decided to see if there is a business.

We live in Henley-on-Thames, which we adore. We have been here for 6 years, and I really do not want move again. I still get goosebumps going over the bridge when coming home.

I did computer science at University, when the dinosaurs were still roaming, and worked as a software engineer and a network design engineer in telecoms before having children. I have also worked with children that have additional needs and I am a qualified High Level Teaching assistant.

I am a follower of Jesus and my faith very much keeps me strong.

Since starting Henley Scan I’ve realised many of my life skills gained during my journey in life have helped being an entrepreneur. I am very solution driven.

I love dogs, I have had two, but decided against another one, since we are hoping in about 5 years or so, to take a mobile home and visit many parts of the world, yet unseen by us, as part of our retirement, so there is still a nomad in me ….

If you ever want a coffee or cocktail in Henley – give me a shout.

We love what we do and are passionate about your story and saving it.

Always happy to have a chat and between my husband, co-founder and co-owner of Henley Scan, we have technical and creative skills. and very little technology beats us.
