Our Amazing Team

graduationcap headphones helmet

Having a great team is the most important ingredient for any business and at SiteHost we have assembled a team that works hard each day to give you the best hosting experience possible. We have a very hands on approach so all team members have a wide range of skills and responsibilities - it's not unusual to see someone doing phone support, then helping install a server, before writing code.

Quintin

Quintin is the Technical Director and co-founder of SiteHost. He comes from a development background and has spent the last 10 years becoming an expert in more technologies than we have room to list. Quintin now runs enough infrastructure to ensure that he rarely gets a good night sleep, but he still happily gets up at 3am to look after our customers’ servers. Quintin also has a keen interest in security which has seen him invited to speak at several conferences. When he’s not looking after the SiteHost infrastructure he likes to play football and has recently taken up squash.

Nathan

Nathan co-founded SiteHost in 2004, and ever since then has been busy with the rapid growth. Having been tinkering with technology since he was knee-high in the grass, Nathan’s geekiness extends beyond computers and has accumulated experience in some quite varied disciplines along the way. His key focus areas are management, sales and procurement. In his limited spare time not occupied with work and his family, Nathan plays football and volunteers as a business mentor.

Albie

Albie manages to balance his time between development and operations work at SiteHost. Most of his day is spent deep in the backend systems getting his hands dirty. Before joining SiteHost, Albie worked on many things including Internet Kiosks, SIP Servers and some Embedded Programming. When he’s got time to spare he likes to listen to music and is a part time DJ.

Andre

Andre is an easy going Brazilian with an inquisitive mind. Working in the operations team he aims to offer superb support and learn something new every day. In his spare time he explores nature, works on DIY projects and socialises with friends and family.

Ben

Ben is a bit of a generalist at SiteHost, continuing the sort of role he previously held at Pitch, a small creative studio he co-founded. This means he works across development, design, support, and sales. When he’s not working he loves gaming, good food, being lazy and patting dogs.

Brendan

Brendan is utilising his 20 years of industry experience to lead our sales team and Wellington based projects. Brendan’s focus on customer service and detail oriented nature makes him the perfect person to help clients get their projects across the line. Outside of work he enjoys spending time with his young family and running stupidly long distances for no reason at all.

Campbell

Coming soon.

Dennis

Dennis is a member of our operations team largely focusing on hardware. He spends most of his days putting together servers and testing various hardware for quality control purposes. Dennis has many talents and constantly impresses us with the tasks he takes on and the problems he can solve. In his spare time Dennis loves playing basketball, has a passion for gaming and is quite the cook.

Diane

Diane is part of our Accounts team at SiteHost using her extensive industry background to work across book-keeping, financial preparation and support. Outside of work Diane spends as much time as possible with her family, traveling, and enjoying good food.

Duncan

Duncan joined SiteHost after moving to Auckland from Christchurch. You’re likely to meet Duncan if you’re enquiring about our products as he’s a member of our sales team. In his free time he enjoys catching up on TV Shows, playing the latest indie game on his gaming PC and trying out new cafes. Duncan also claims to make a better coffee than anyone else at SiteHost.

Dylan

Dylan joined the team after graduating from Massey University with a degree in Software Engineering. Now he's applying those skills at SiteHost to get things shipped. In his spare time you will find him gaming, watching shows and playing guitar. He also has an impressive commitment to his gym schedule.

Garth

Garth worked for an agency for 4 years as a Developer mostly building USSD systems (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) before moving to SiteHost. In his spare time he relaxes with his family and watches soccer – lots and lots of soccer. While being new to New Zealand he also tries to explore new places as much as possible.

Gretchen

Gretchen is part of our Accounts team and is involved in book-keeping, customer service and other administrative tasks. When she's not working, she loves watching K-drama or anime series, traveling, plus enjoying time with family and friends.

James

James is a developer who we bravely rescued from the agency life, or so we like to think. He would probably say that rescued is debatable. When he’s not correcting our spelling or grammar (please report any mistakes on this website to him) he’s a bit of a gamer and huge movie and TV buff.

Justin

Justin has been in the IT Industry for most of his working career. He joined SiteHost after 20 years of general IT contracting. He is a jack, or in this case, a Justin of all trades, but trying to master some. When not working he dabbles in helping the darksky monitoring project, tries to be a good partner to his fiancee, plays console games when she allows and is occasional tech support for friends and family.

Lyndon

Lyndon is part of our operations team and while he's one of the youngest people on staff don't let that fool you. After finishing his studies Lyndon joined a tertiary training institute as an IT Tutor and Network Administrator. Lyndon spends his spare time being a total geek, one of his hobbies is making sure his computers are as hard to use as possible.

Matt

Coming soon.

Mike

Mike provides accounts support to our clients keeping everyone happy by putting his excellent customer service skills to use. He also plays a large role in making sure the SiteHost office is running smoothly. Prior to joining SiteHost Mike has worked for Navman Wireless and Orcon Internet. In his spare time he likes to paint models and play Airsoft.

Paulus

Paulus joined SiteHost soon after moving from South Africa. His 12 years experience in the IT industry has helped him to quickly find his feet in our Operations team. While still new to the country he enjoys exploring the beautiful scenery with his family.

Ricky

Ricky has been in Sales for number of years, he is obsessed with customer service, in fact people call him a customers advocate. He is always curious to learn about customers businesses and help them grow by thinking big, simplifying their processes and driving results.

Rudi

Rudi is part of our operations team, originally hailing from South Africa. After finishing his studies, Rudi joined a tertiary training institute as a lecturer and network administrator, before turning into an all-out enterprise Linux engineer. Rudi enthusiastically spends his spare time being bad at board games, card games and video games, and building or 3D printing elaborate cosplay props and costumes.

Saad

Saad joined SiteHost while in his final year of his Computer Systems Engineering degree and has now moved into a full time operations role after graduating. Saad has a wide variety of interests but you can usually find him enjoying competitive gaming, all things tech and the outdoors.

Scott

Scott is part of the product team at SiteHost, applying his many years of experience and skills to help build new things and untangle the mysteries of legacy code. When he's not at work he likes to find boxes of strange objects using GPS coordinates, explore the wilderness, procrastinate on house renovations and spend time with his partner and adorable dog.

Srivats

Srivats is part of our operations team currently working the evening shift to help provide our 24/7 coverage. As he graduated recently he's keen on learning the tricks of the trade and grow as member of SiteHost. In his spare time he likes to play badminton, hit the gym and cook.

Tommy

Tommy joined SiteHost after graduating from the University of Auckland with an honours degree in Software Engineering. You'd probably find him in the Development room trying to solve problems or in the kitchen making the perfect coffee. In his spare time Tommy likes to play games and football in the weekend or stay in bed and watch TV shows all day.

People Sharing The Love

People saying nice things about us is always great to hear, but when they say it publicly without us asking it's even better.
