Who are you, and what is your role at Yorb?

Chris, Client Manager

What made you want to work with us?

I’ve always been attracted to innovative and forward-thinking companies who want to push boundaries and go above and beyond for their clients. Yorb ticked all the boxes plus they have a great company environment.

What are you most excited about to achieve here?

Yorb has so much knowledge of everything technology! I’m excited about the future of the company and being a part of the team here with all their diverse expertise. It drives me to make Yorb the modern technology partner of choice for our Hawkes Bay businesses.

What was your journey like that led you to where you are now?

I cut my teeth in the technology sector with Gen-i back in 1998 after completing my Diploma in Business Computing. Success saw me appointed in managerial and leadership roles over the years where I gained sector knowledge spanning almost every area of the economy. My expertise is understanding technology and business methodology to bridge the gap when working with clients seeking a solution outcome is what gets me excited about the day ahead.

What themed party would you throw for the office?

I’d throw a Hawaiian style party where you must unleash your loudest summer outfit. I would have a classic jukebox in the corner booming summer vibes and have a street style food truck roll up outside, where you can sit on bean bags with a cold crispy beverage.

What are the small things that make your day better?

A cuddle from my daughter Thea once she has had her bath, and in her paw patrol jammies before, quickly running away to find her favourite book for me to read to her.

If you could have 1 superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation- to be able to teleport objects or yourself from one point to anywhere
