CEO at Kiratech

As the founder and leader of Kiratech, I combine more than 15 years of experience in the IT, automotive, medical, waste management, logistics, commercial real estate, asset and funds management which enables me to build successful companies founded on winning teams. I am one of many and together as a team operate a well-oiled machine guided by our company board.

My vision is to lead this generation and empower the next by building a global company supporting local South Australian talent while attracting the best from around the world to work here. Along the way, partnering with people disrupting their respective industries, assisting their transition into adopting emerging technologies and contributing to making global sustainability a reality. We're proud to be recognised by our international awards and partnerships with industry associations in Australia, Asia and the USA.

We don't forget about our neighbours having established our local community initiative program we provide up to 100% subsidised services to local small businesses such as restaurants, not-for-profit and educational organisations that are in line with our vision.

With thousands of people engaging with our solutions per week, conducting millions of actions, we’re helping our customers make an impact by automating their businesses, digitalising their services into products, allowing them to scale and export their technologies globally. Through our city to city initiatives, working with governments, colleges and universities, we're setting the standard on what a smart city can be, starting first with our hometown Adelaide with the foundation being infrastructure to support next-generation tech companies and nurturing people by empowering them through education.

I invite you to engage and work with us and solve the world's biggest problems together.
