With great depth of experience on all types of legacy systems, from a micro server to a supercomputer, Bill can help you find the one you need or find a new home from the one you don’t.

Ashley Stewart
Solutions Manager

Ashley has been with Touchpoint since 2012 and heads up our Solutions Team. With many years experience working in both Sales & Technical roles across the industry there isn’t much that Ashley doesn’t know about all the latest server, storage and networking solutions available. When out of the office Ashley can be found eating in the latest restaurant, riding his motorbike or taking his two dogs – Frank and Stanley – for a run at the local park.

Abhushan Shrestha
Solutions Specialist

Abhushan is key member of the Touchpoint Solutions Team focused on building quotes, sourcing equipment and coordinating our global network of suppliers. His primary task is the regular provision of email updates and phone check-ins to ensure each of our customers know exactly what is happening with their order and ultimately has a completely satisfying customer service experience when buying hardware from Touchpoint. Abhushan has several years of experience in the Australian IT industry across the Telco and System Integrator sectors. In his spare time he enjoys a quick 10km run before flaking on the couch with a bowl of pasta and settling in to watch his favourite series on Netflix.

Pedr Cain
Key Accounts Specialist

As a Customer Service Specialist here at Touchpoint, Pedr is tasked with ensuring 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.

Jack Yang
Technical Services Manager

Jack is our Technical Services manager here at Touchpoint. He takes great care to ensure all equipment passes safely through our rigorous testing and QA processes. Jack has many years of experience in the IT industry including field engineering gigs for Fujitsu and Acer and has a strong passion for Data Centre hardware. When not carefully scrutinising a server Jack loves spending time with his kids Amelie and Dylan or finishing off his latest home improvement project.

Karen Fordham
Finance Manager

Karen is our Finance Manager at Touchpoint and is our longest serving employee having been with us since the early days. A multi-tasking machine, Karen manages our accounts whilst also completing an accounting degree at university and raising her four children – Nicholas, Mitchell, Jessica and Jake. Karen looks forward to having some spare time when she completes her studies later this year.

Tom Carden
Digital Marketing Manager

Tom oversees Touchpoint’s Digital Marketing ensuring we do a good job of helping new customers find us and understand how we can help them to buy, sell, rent or recycle their IT hardware. Tom brings a great range of skills to this role with a degree in Information Technology, and several years of experience in consulting and building websites that really connect with customers. When not bent over a laptop hammering out HTML code, Tom is typically found playing for his local cricket team or barracking for his beloved South Sydney Rabbitohs.
