Meet the Team

Kiandra actively recruits and retains the best IT brains available. Recognised industry leaders, authors, teachers and evangelists fill our ranks. These are just a few of them…

Cameron Brookes

Cameron Brookes

Managing Director

Cam is a die-hard Blues supporter, basketball, soccer and motorsport nut, he also happens to be the Managing Director of Kiandra, co-founding the company over 20 years ago while still at Uni. He is the longest standing Kiandra Footy Tips winner… as those who have beat him are coincidentally no longer with us.

Martin Cooperwaite

Martin Cooperwaite

Director – Strategic Accounts

Mart’s IT story started over 30 years ago when he started developing adventure games for his 2nd grade primary school friends. This secured his nerd-status and removed any possibility of him becoming a sporting superstar. Co-founding Kiandra, (with his sportier mate Cam) while studying at Uni, over 20 years ago was a logical progression.

Chris Munro

Chris Munro

Director - Technology Services

The only thing Chris loves more than technology is being a dad – and he has an impressive array of dad-jokes to prove it. When he’s not leading the infrastructure team’s technology strategy he’s spending his down time with his wife, young daughters and retired greyhound mutt Jane.

Erik Kostense

Erik Kostense

Head of Finance

Erik is the money man and Kiandra’s BFG. So combined this makes him the most feared person at Kiandra! Erik plays a pivotal role ensuring the ongoing financial strength of Kiandra to support its growth and development.

Christopher Grant

Christopher Grant

Head of Software Development

Christopher is a keen (not mad) cyclist and mad (not keen) Rugby tragic who is equally as enthusiastic about delivering successful software development projects for our clients. Christopher has extensive experience spanning close to two decades in the IT industry, and an intricate understanding of professional services-based software development, delivery and team leadership.

Bianca Pickett

Bianca Pickett

Head of People and Culture

As well as being one of our resident mad cyclists, Bianca has a passion for transformation and continuous improvement, and is a leader in building high performing cultures. She focusses on finding the right people, mixing them with the great people already at Kiandra, and developing the working environment so they can thrive. Her goal is to make Kiandra THE place to work for IT professionals.

Michael Johnson

Michael Johnson

Head of Sales & Marketing

Over the last 18 years Michael has been a firm fixture in the ICT industry, holding roles at the vendor, distributor and reseller/system integrator level. With a solid track record of success in growing market share, and a wealth of experience, influence and knowledge around services-based technology, Kiandra is pretty pleased to have snagged him to head up Sales and Marketing! Originally hailing from South Australia, Michael has retained a passion for all things SA, including the wines and football team (Adelaide Crows), but we don’t hold that against him.

Dan Weis

Dan Weis

Penetration Tester/Security Specialist

Dan burns about 6 million calories a day – not from breaking into company and government networks (legally), but because he is health nut, addicted to pain! Nicknamed “The General” as a result of his multitude of industry qualifications Dan was handpicked by the EC-Council to be one of the first 10 in the world to undertake the Certified Ethical Hacker version 7 training.

Christos Pavlou

Christos Pavlou

Business Development Manager & Sales Team Leader

Christos has a passion for soccer and takes his role as coach of the local team very seriously. Almost as seriously as he takes the responsibility of providing his customers with the best tech solutions to achieve their business goals.
