Meet the Team Behind SuiteFiles

Nestled away, 17 floors above the Wellington waterfront, you'll find SuiteFiles HQ. On any given day you'll find the team researching, designing, brainstorming, coding, consulting, coffee-drinking, cheese eating, laughing, prototyping, testing, musing, customer supporting, migrating and all the other doing words that have made them a thriving start-up.

With a background in cloud consultancy for small business and a sweet MBA with Distinction under his belt, Andrew takes the helm of Suite as Chief Executive Officer. As a down-to-earth guy who genuinely gives two hoots, each and every one of SuiteFiles’ customers gets treated to his unique brand of enthusiasm and approachable business style.

When not helping small businesses realise the cloud dream, you’ll likely find Andrew on the field with a cricket bat or rugby ball in hand, or maybe even practicing his speech for when his sons become All Blacks.
