Adelaide-based small business technology specialist, Calvert Technologies, has expanded its team to meet what it says is strong growth in demand for cloud services.

Calvert Technologies General Manager, Mike Reid, said Andrew James had joined the company to take up the role of Technical Consultant, in a hybrid Sales/Technical role.  

James previously worked in technical support and network engineering roles the CSIRO and A1 Computing Solutions and also ran his own network engineering consultancy.

Calvert has also appointed Graham Butterworth as its Network Operations Centre (NOC) Hosting Consultant, overseeing the company’s managed service clients.

A 20-year ICT veteran, Butterworth has worked for organisations including Deloitte, TransVisionMedia / Martins Design and Standard Office Equipment.

Reid said the recruitment of James and Butterworth added greater depth to the company’s technical resources.

“Our business is about more than just making technology work - what counts is making that technology work for our customers.

“As a Technical Consultant, Andrew uses sales and technical skills to ensure that our customers get a solution that actually solves their problems. As our NOC Hosting Consultant, Graham delivers proactive maintenance for our managed service clients.

“During the past year, we’ve become heavily involved in Cloud and hosted solutions, in particular Microsoft Office 365 migrations and hosted servers. We have also branched out into the Northern Territory, so we hope to see great growth potential in the Top End as well.

“Andrew and Graham contribute both the experience and the expertise to assist our customers who are choosing to migrate from in-house technology to hosted or Cloud-based systems.”
