Christine has been with us since 2003. She leads a highly capable team that takes care of the money side of our business. This includes making sure our expenses run within agreed budgets, money comes in as it should and our customers and staff get paid correctly and on time. Christine also helps us with our mergers and acquisitions across the country, as well as preparing financial reports for senior managers and Inland Revenue.

Working with numbers is clearly something Christine loves. She also enjoys the people here and the ever-changing challenges of working in a growing company.

Away from work, Christine likes spending time with family and friends, travelling and watching sport; occasionally combining all three at once. You’ll often find her unwinding at a beach somewhere. One of her favourites is the six kilometres of white sand and clear blue ocean at Whangamata on the Coromandel Peninsula.

Dwayne started earning money from computer sales and training when he was just 13 years old. He wanted a good education and it was the only way he could afford to attend private schools in Masterton. With the young business steadily growing and a successful school career in its final year, Dwayne decided it was time to focus solely on the business. He left school and drove non-stop to Auckland.

Before long he’d built a nationwide company called Horizon Pacific. It provided IT support and internet services to business customers, including most of New Zealand’s real estate companies. To make the most of the ultra-fast broadband roll-out Dwayne created One, a new internet service provider for business. One was the first to connect a business customer to the new fibre network.

Recognising that talented IT people with their own businesses were often bogged down by back office administration, in 2011 Dwayne created the umbrella organisation New Zealand Technology Group. It provides businesses within the group with proven administrative systems and economies of scale for growth.

“I like finding talented IT people who are passionate about what they’re doing, but can’t seem to get their business to that critical mass required for significant growth. We plug them into our admin systems which really work and free them up to focus on what they love doing. It’s very rewarding to see their before and afters, and watch them grow,” explains Dwayne.

Dwayne puts a lot of his success down to staying in close contact with customers and not losing sight of what’s happening on the street and at the coal face.

“I’m onsite with customers every day. That way you see opportunities as they’re emerging, so you can get the right people in place with the right product at the right price before anyone else,” he explains.

The other skill he brings to business is getting to the root cause of problems and adjusting systems and procedures to put things right.

“If something’s not going right, I believe in working out exactly where the issue lies, then adjusting the way things are done,” says Dwayne. “It’s vital to communicate the reasons behind the changes with the people involved in order to win their support.”

“I love what I do, I love being busy and I’m genuinely excited about the talent and growth we’re unlocking through New Zealand Technology Group.”

When he’s not out riding his motorbike or geeking out playing with new technologies, Bryan devotes his time to making sure our intricate network is plugged in and working like it should.

Bryan joined us in 2006 with a wealth of experience as a systems engineer building and configuring hosting, network and communications infrastructure. There’s pretty much nothing he can’t handle when it comes to connecting up different systems and getting them to speak the right language to each other; an absolute necessity in our business.

So when the blue smoke isn’t escaping from electrical devices, and all the plugs are right where they should be, Bryan is a happy man.

After leaving the Police, Bill entered the IT world through Local Government. After a stint as IT Manager for the Ashburton District Council, and time on the executive of ALGIM (Association of Local Government Information Managers), he joined a company called Business Computers. Working on a large IT support contract in the medical sector, just as the profession was beginning to embrace computers, opened the door to a successful future and the eventual formation of Bill’s company Technologix.


In 2013 Technologix joined the New Zealand Technology Group and has continued to grow ever since. GPs and specialists made up around 80% of the customer base, and MedStar was formed to provide a full IT support service for around 60 medical practices, primarily in Auckland.
