Pedr Cain
Sales Controller

Pedr oversees the sales activity here at Touchpoint, ensuring all customers receive the high quality of customer service that we strongly believe sets us apart in this industry. Pedr built and sold his first computers while in university and has been assisting customers with their data centre and ‘hard to find’ IT needs for most of the 20+ years since. When he’s not logged onto his email it’s generally because he’s watching a live performance somewhere, hiking in some remote corner of the globe or 20m underwater. In the remainder of his time Pedr pursues his long term goal of ‘completing’ Netflix.

Hugh Rochester
Key Accounts Manager

As our Key Accounts Manager, Hugh works closely with Touchpoint’s strategic customers, ensuring that their requirements are being met. His ability to provide a high level of customer service stems from several years of experience in relationship management at Optus and a couple of technology start-ups where he dealt with large, complex organisations in a variety of industries. Away from the office Hugh can be found in the kitchen perfecting his coffee brewing technique, working out at the gym or at a gig trying to achieve his goal of seeing 200 bands in a year.
