Joanne Bright - Office Manager

Originally from Christchurch with a background in Hospitality, Joanne moved to the big smoke after the earthquakes in search of a more stable lifestyle for herself and her family.

Joanne has taken on several crucial roles including customer services manager, accounts administrator and most recently has joined the Vertech team as our new Office Manager. 

Outside of work, Joanne enjoys spending time with her horse, going out with friends, going to the beach and attending the local garage sales. If the Crusaders or The All Blacks are playing, you will find Joanne shouting enthusiastically at the television.

If he isn’t walking customers through their issues, he is out kicking goals at the local rugby park.

Ethan Watson - Service Desk Boy Wonder

Because his mother insists on feeding him this lad is growing like a weed and is secretly plotting to depose his dad and take control of the business.

Little does he know but Dad is quite willing to train him up to be able to do so and in the meantime profits from nearly-slave labour.

He absolutely loves getting assigned menial tasks around the office, wiping PC's, generating reports and generally helping out the guys with whatever he can after school.

Loves: Pizza, Sparkling Duet, Youtube, and his Mum.
