Troy Shanks – Systems Director

With a background in Sales, Troy made the switch to IT 12 years ago when he realised that people were asking him for technical help more than the actual IT team at his work. Troy’s unique ability to communicate technical problems clearly, allows his clients to make informed and educated decisions about their build, as well as to learn about the process of website design, this results in a better outcome for the client, while giving the company the skills on how to engage their customer base through digital tools. Social media is another big one that companies know they need, but don’t understand how to use to connect with their audience. Combining his sales training and skills with his technical skill set has allowed Troy to build a reputation as the Go – to person for digital strategy and tools. Troy is also a nerd from before it was cool and will happily tell you about the latest tech gadgets and trends.
