My dad once told me, “always hire people smarter than you”. It’s advice I’ve relied on for over 20 years as CEO and co-owner of The Missing Link.
We are IT solution experts, focussing on infrastructure, managed services, cloud and cyber security - but above all else we are a people business. I have taken my dad’s advice and that’s one of the things that makes our company what it is today. I never hesitate to tell my staff that every one of them matter. I take pride in educating, empowering and mentoring them to reach their goals. I believe if you help other people achieve their dreams, you will achieve yours.
Industry recognition further validates my belief, with many of our senior staff (some of whom have been with us for over a decade) receiving industry awards for being the best in the industry at what they do. In addition, I was recently honoured to be inducted into the ARN Hall of Fame, this is an award which will always be close to my heart.
Our talented staff have made The Missing Link one of the most awarded IT businesses in Australia.
Being the leader of a successful tech company, it stands to reason that I love gadgets. My favourite would have to be my AirPods – when you spend as much time on the phone as I do, it’s nice to go hands free. However, when I’m not on the phone or at work, there’s nothing I enjoy more than spending that time with my family.
