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.

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

Pedr is an Account Manager here at Touchpoint 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.
