Steve Edwards

Managing Director

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 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 & Tasmania Branch Manager

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.

Matt Boardman

Repairs & Maintenance Coordinator

Matt studied IT at university, finishing in 2007, but moved into a hospitality career shortly after. After taking a redundancy, Matt has looked to move back to his earlier passion for computers and brings with him a decade of customer service experience. If you call our support line, there’s a good chance Matt will be the first person you speak with, and the last to confirm everything was to your satisfaction.

Matt’s IT experience includes end user support, web design, and program/app development. His time in customer service has led to him being passionate about ensuring your experience runs as smoothly as possible, so you don’t lose sleep stressing over your computer!

When he’s not in the office, Matt and his wife are gamers at heart. Playing everything from competitive video games, fancy new board games all the way to old-school Dungeons and Dragons, and even working on making his own games for both the tabletop and the app store online.

Jon Rivis

IT Support Technician

By day, he’s an IT Guru, by night, he’s a Gamer. When he’s not fixing computers, he’s spending time with his wife or binge watching TV shows. [What a life hey! ed.]

Jon has been working in the IT scene for more than 5 years and during that time, he has had a wide involvement with different industries. With this, he has gained a wide range of experience in different types of technology that are available to help improve businesses.

Growing up, Jon has always been involved with technology and had a great passion for it. He loves the saying quoted by Steve Jobs, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”.
