Originally started in 1997 and called ActivBoardNZ, I bought the business in 2015 and renamed it to ActiveVision.

Rebranded ActiveVision in 2017 we are proud to be the New Zealand partner for Promethean, Smart and Clevertouch, representing the three largest and most successful interactive technology brands in the world under one roof, with proven reliability in the classroom – arguably one of the most difficult environments for technology. Today’s leading edge technology in the interactive touchscreen market for the classroom and boardroom is very exciting.

In addition to great products, ActiveVision has a fantastic team with the skills and attitude to provide excellent customer support and advice.

I bring new energy to the business and a desire to continue our number one position for interactive technology in Education whilst continuing to develop our commercial opportunities.

Coming from a background in AV spanning several decades, it’s been inspiring to join such a positive and experienced team.

I’m finding it rewarding and fulfilling introducing the ActiveVision solutions to my long-standing contacts and new clients.

Being directly involved in consultation with Universities, local and central Government departments and high profile corporates is where I’m most comfortable – and I love enabling them to gain the advantages inherent in the new, innovative and disruptive technologies we offer.

After working in the corporate world for the past 12 years it’s fantastic to see the current technologies from ActiveVision being implemented and adopted so readily into schools. It means our future adults have every opportunity to excel in the digital world they are growing up in.

I grew up in Mangere Bridge, moved to Otahuhu where my father had his business for 30 years and had my first job in Takanini after leaving school so I feel well connected to South Auckland and really enjoy working with the teachers.

I’m very much a family man spending most weekends with my wife and daughter, either around the house or out and about in all the fantastic parks and beaches Auckland has to offer.

I’ve been with ActiveVision (formerly Activboard) for 10 years in the role of Office Manager. I’ve followed the journey of changing technology in schools during this time. I’ve seen interactive whiteboards and panels make a difference in so many children’s lives from special schools to main stream and from kindergarten to tertiary.

There’s no limit with the learning children now have at their fingertips with this technology. Collaboration is an integral part of our working life and if we learn from a young age we can become part of a great team like we are here at ActiveVision!
