Bill (together with Nick) founded Touchpoint in 2009. Bill has over 20 years experience in the Australian IT industry selling just about anything that goes into or comes out of a large data centre.

Married to Sarah and father to three girls – Daisy, Bella and Edie. Outside of the office Bill is usually found on the water chasing pelagics or crafting his next woodwork masterpiece in the workshop.
Ashley has been with Touchpoint for more than four years 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 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.
Seb works in our Sales Team applying his knowledge of latest trend digital transformation solutions such as hyperconverged platforms, and cloud/hybrid cloud migrations. In previous roles Seb has worked across the education, government, financial and mining sectors with a strong focus on being a single point of contact and trusted adviser to his clients. When not bolting together a new solution for a customer Seb likes to try out the latest local restaurant, get down to the beach or away up the coast for some rock climbing.
Nanching heads up the Logistics function here at Touchpoint. From next-door to the other side of the world, Nanching manages the safe delivery of all equipment to our customers and oversees the tight set of systems and processes that guarantee the quality of our products. When not at work Nanching can be found lifting some seriously heavy weights in the gym (or refuelling just the right amount of protein and carbs post-workout!).
