Steve founded activIT systems in 2004, and over the journey has experienced the joys, demands, and occasional stresses, of owning and managing a successful small business. He is a proud Dad of a young family and loves watching the cricket and the footy.
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 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.
