Our Amazing Team

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 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 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 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 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 NZ's nature, works on DIY projects and socialises with friends and family.


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 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.


Coming soon.


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 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 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.


Coming soon.


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.


Coming soon.


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.


As the youngest member of the team, Leo likes to use his constant quest for knowledge to keep the rest of us on our toes. He’s always interested in what we can do differently or what technology might be the better fit today. When he’s not at the office Leo likes to sleep, occasionally play games, clean his car and eat far too much takeaway food of questionable quality.


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.


Maxim brings his experience with all sorts of tech to our team. Interested in things that break, he erroneously claims that magic does not always work on computers and spends his time undoing the inevitable, whether it affects the network, hardware or software. Maxim spends his spare time reading up on new scientific discoveries, unraveling mysteries of the Internet and jogging in between.


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.


Coming soon.

Tommy joined SiteHost after graduating from the University of Auckland with an honours degree in Software Engineering. You'd probably find him in the Operations 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.

VPS signup with sitehost was incredibly painless. 15 mins from first visit to root login. (via @nzben) http://bit.ly/RMrlq
