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.
Andy joined Touchpoint in August 2017, after 17 years with IBM Australia, selling and buying Enterprise IT across all industry verticals in the UK, Ireland, South African and Australian markets. Andy adds to Touchpoint’s strong pool of industry knowledge with deep knowledge of a range of hardware from Mainframe System Z right through to Intel servers and the latest mobile devices.

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.
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 heaving weights in the gym (or refuelling just the right amount of protein and carbs post-workout!).
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.
