- General Manager
A passionate believer in the enabling power of properly applied IT solutions, Tony is the General Manager of Mango 4 Office Technology. Over a decade ago, Tony saw the need for a provider of office solutions in the Rockhampton and Central Queensland area and began the journey to transition the Xerox Shop into what he believes is the best one-stop shop for helping businesses forget about the jargon and actually get the benefit from technology solutions.
“I love helping businesses do what they do better – that’s why we built Mango 4.”
One of Tony’s favorite memories (other than the Wallabies winning the 1999 Rugby World Cup) is being able to build a customer-focused, service driven, fun place to work, in an era of massive change in the way business is done. Today, Mango 4 has grown to employ over 30 proud Central Queenslanders.
Through provision of integrated phone systems, data infrastructure and cabling, copying solutions, security cameras, alarm systems, server and PC setup, and managed IT services with 24/7 support, Tony is proud to have been part of the team that has given hundreds, actually thousands of businesses a platform to thrive. Providing a full service, adding value and making the small business owner’s life a bit simpler is what Tony strives to achieve through Mango 4.
These days Tony has stepped back from a sales role and spends his time building and training his team, and enjoys seeing them kick goals and take pride in the success of their clients.
When the demands of the business aren’t calling, Tony is happily married, a proud father of 4 and self-confessed rugby tragic, who spends his free time driving his kids to various sporting events and watching Rugby whenever he can.
Bruce is a veteran of the office technology business, having clocked up over 15 years with Mango 4. He loves the ever-changing world of technology and how finding the right technology solution can make a tangible difference in the day-to-day running of a business.
The challenge of bridging the gap between a customer’s understanding and the solutions that Mango 4 can provide is one that Bruce enjoys. At the beginning of his career devices were all separate and stand-alone, but now with advances in technology Bruce can see the benefits of having multi-function devices that ‘talk’ to each other.
Having worked his way up in the Mango 4 business from being the man who loads the delivery truck to the installation technician, a salesperson and now the sales manager, Bruce has years of invaluable experience under his belt.
“It doesn’t matter whether a client is a huge company with thousands of employees or a one-man-band – we’ve worked with both and provide the same quality and service, just on a large or small scale.”
Bruce doesn’t leave technology behind at the end of the working day – he practices what he preaches. Between Bruce, his wife and two children, he estimates there are about 10 connected devices keeping the family together!
Sam is driven to help businesses improve their productivity and every day running cost though smart office technology’s saving them time and that all important dollar.
“I enjoy helping people understanding the fast changing technology’s Mango 4 have to offer and how to best implement them into their business”
When Sam isn’t talking office technologies, he is spending time with his young family soaking up the CQ sun. Be it camping, fishing, 4×4 trips or out on the dirt bikes.
Theresa loves talking to people – so it’s only natural that she also loves helping businesses talk to their customers. As Mango 4’s resident phone plan guru, Theresa regularly goes in to bat for her customers, helping them find the phone system and the phone plan that best suits their needs.
From builders, accountants and engineers to real estate agents and motels, home offices to multi-storey buildings, Theresa makes it her responsibility to take care of all her customers’ telecommunications needs. She truly understands that if the phone doesn’t ring, a business can’t operate – and that whether there is one phone line or five, every customer is important.
“I see myself as a business consultant – I aim to give customers as much information as possible to help with all of their business needs.”
Theresa has travelled Australia and hopes one day to travel the world…keeping in touch via phone, of course!
