Chief Technology Officer
Steve’s responsibility is to take the Verne™ and Catalyst™ products to the next level and ensure the technology/toolset are kept ahead of the curve to place Verne™ as the most innovative product in the Registry space. He ensures the product meets both customer needs and configurator needs with an emphasis on usability, performance and innovation.
Steve has over twenty years experience in the software development industry in a variety of commercial, defence and government sectors. This broad range of expertise (including military work, aeronautical simulation software, real-time voice/imaging and large-scale business systems) has resulted in him leading teams that have built many exciting products.
Prior to 2000, Steve held technical roles focussed on knowledge management which were very hands-on. These gave him the experience that saw him progress to lead and architect roles. From 2000 to 2008 Steve held roles as Technical Architect or Technical Lead across several projects and several companies.
Steve holds a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Auckland.
