Our IT Superheroes


Steve Edwards
Managing Director

Steve founded activIT systems in 2004, and over the past 11 years has experienced the joys, and demands, of owning and managing a successful small business. He is a proud Dad of a young family and enjoys working with his wife (see Kelly Edwards, below), and loves watching the cricket and the AFL. If he were to play sport rather than watch, he’d most likely carry the drinks in the cricket team and not even make the footy team.

With a mentality that we can always do something better than we’ve done it in the past, Steve strives to ensure that activIT systems provides not only great products and services to our clients in the most cost effective ways possible, but also the reassurance and reliability to clients that when they need us, we’ll be there for them.


Steven Patterson
Client Services Manager

Steven has come from an e-commerce and Internet Marketing background and has been working in the IT Industry since 2008. One of his IT passions is transitioning our clients from one system to another; he wants to make sure that the clients experience amazing customer service and a smooth transition, not just a new computer system.

Past IT experience includes mid sized companies such as Unidata Pty Ltd, through to the Water Corporation and Woodside Petroleum, on contract through CSC (Computer Services Corporation).

During his spare time, Steven loves to tinker with new IT equipment and technology, and occasionally catches up on his favourite authors, Lee Child and Matthew Reilly … on an electronic book reader of course.


Glen Sawtell
Systems Engineer

Glen has been in the IT industry since 2007, and during that time has acquired a great deal of experience with a wide variety of hardware, software and supporting systems.

Glen thoroughly enjoys the challenges that the IT industry provides and prides himself on providing the right solution for our clients to suit their needs.

Having performed work for clients in a differing array of industries including manufacturing, waste management, resources, legal, finance, creative, transport, real estate, construction and more, he always strives to ensure that IT systems are implemented in a timely and efficient manner and that they are working to optimal capacity.

Outside of work, he loves going for a bushwalk in the countryside surrounding his home in Devonport, Tasmania, and enjoys the art of photography, and relaxes to a bit of Metallica.
