Graduated from Deakin University, Albert has
started this Company in 2002 with his most-trusted-best-buddy-partner,
Sean. With his 15 years of experience as Business Manager,
Albert has an idea to offer web hosting solutions that is
flexible, friendly, relax, innovative, constantly improving
themselves, great customer support and, of course, reliability.
Together with Sean’s extensive knowledge in IT, they have
started Flexihostings from their living room armed with only 2 PC.
Slowly, but definitely steadfastly, they have grown Flexihostings
to its presence state with offices in Australia, Singapore and Malaysia.
Albert is known in the office as the “alcoholic”
guy, “party” guy and “the marketing” guru.
He could come out with brilliant marketing and business ideas
even when he’s drunk that he could barely walk. Have you
ever heard anyone coming up with thousand excuses before? Well…Albert
is the master when it comes to exercising, diet and wearing a
|Graduated from the same university with Albert,
Deakin University, Sean is the master when it comes to programming
and IT stuff. He has the brain that works like a super high-tech
and fast machine that often leads to his super encrypted language
when it comes to talking to normal human being, like his staffs.
Interestingly, only Albert (most of the time) is able to decrypt
Sean’s words into a layman terms. Guess that’s
what makes the two of them the perfect ingredient for Flexihostings.
Together with his adorable wife, Sean enjoys a long walk at the
park and quiet moment with his family alone. Just like his partner,
Sean hates exercising. Sean is often called the “bear”
in the office, maybe because he is as cute as a bear but as fierce
and deadly when he’s stress (uppss….)
The beauty queen in the office, Ashley is
graduated from University of Sydney, majored in Computer
Science. Being too beautiful with IT brain (which you can
hardly find in here), she needs to work doubly hard to convinced
people she has brain, not a dumb blonde. Ashley is Flexihostings’
sweetheart that holds a special place in everyone’s
heart, even to our customers. She is simply too good to
Actively involved in charity, Ashley often dragged us, literally,
to volunteer our special time to contribute a little bit of something
to the society. Though most of the times it brings a great satisfaction
to all of us, we all tend to hide somewhere in the building from
being dragged or nagged by her.
|He’s the father in the house. Paul is
the most mature person in Flexihostings with 35 years of working
experience as Customer Service Manager. He simply loves pleasing
people and being the man with a big heart. Everyone in Flexihostings
often look up to him whenever we have problems, or even to
just listen to his fatherly advices.
Paul with his beautiful wife, Sarah, been married for 30 years.
Together they have 3 children and 4 grandchildren living in Victoria.
With his excellent culinary skills, Paul is often called as “Big
Momma”. “Who said only women can cook” says
Paul all the time.
He’s the geek. The nerd. The Linux
guy. However you call him, he’ll be happy with it.
For Damien, he only eats, sleeps and talks to his computers
24/7. He is also the brainiac in Flexihostings. With double
degree in Computer Science and Computer Engineer, Damien
also has a Master degree in Computer Engineer and a PhD
in Computer Engineer.
Being the geek guy, everyone, literally, does not exist in his
world, although we are sitting right next to him. Just like Sean,
when it comes to talking, he often needs to repeat two or three
times so we could all understand it. No one can ever understand
a word whenever Damien and Sean start talking and discussing about
work. It’s a totally alien world for us.
|There are so many ways to describe her. She’s
the naughty girl, party lover, playful and yet she is very
serious when it comes to work. Graduated from University of
Melbourne, 10 years ago, she has been working in IT industry
for most of her working life. “I don’t have to
meet people face to face in this line” as her reason.
Being an avid traveller, Tasha has explored almost every part
of Australia and even South East Asia. Her favourite holiday spot
is Bali (don’t we all?). A pro surfer, Tasha never missed
a single day without surfing, be it raining, winter or hot day.
“The Cute Billing Lady” is her
trademark. Being the Billing girl, she is very attentive
when it comes to money. No one escape her memory when it
comes to owing her some money. Majored in Finance, Lyza
has been working in Financial industry for 9 years. If you
are heavily in debt, especially credit card debt, look for
Lyza and she will pull you out from it. She has the best
financial plan that all of us have been following her guide
and never again worry about money. The sacred book you say.
She has recently given birth to the cutest baby boy ever. Together
with her loving husband, they are the ideal happy family that
you always dream about.
|Yip is the strangest person in Flexihostings.
Yip refused to be known as a She or He to the customer. Yip
would rather remain to be a mysterious one, but of course
we know the truth.
Yip is the best when it comes to Technical support and explaining
the most complicated things to customer and make them understand
it. But if you ask Yip to explain it to you, face to face, all
of the sudden the tongue will get tied up and not a word could
come out. If it does, you would not understand a word at all
too. Most of the time, Yip will explain a very simply and straight
forward thing into a long difficult and confusing way.
Yip wants to be known as the “alien” in the office
and refused to be a normal person. Yip likes to monitor the
Helpdesk 24/7 and play around with computers. Literally, Yip
has a mini data centre in the room with 4 powerful servers running
without casing. Her favourite past time is to read up programming
book and photography magazine.
The easy-go-lucky girl, Cherry is the most
cheerful, noisiest, loudest, shameless and fastest girl
in the office. She is often known as the “crazy girl”.
Graduated from University of New South Wales, she always
talk about how great Bondi beach and Maroubra beach are,
the Fried Mars Bar, Paddington market and many more (Boring…..).
“Talk first, think later” is always her issue and
often get her into trouble, especially because she does things
very fast. She is a devotee Buddhist who likes to chant, meditate
and even listen to chanting song in the office. She has the weirdest
taste too. Although she is young, fun and active dancer, she listens
to old songs and her favourite singer is Luciano Pavarotti and
Julio Iglesias. She may looks young on the outside, but she is
extremely OLD on the inside.
|The “food lover” is her nickname.
She eats anything and anytime, but never put on any weight.
She is blessed with the fast metabolism that many women envy
about. Just like Albert, she holds her liquor very well too.
Everyone always try to get her drunk, but before she does,
the rest will get drunk first. Her favourite drink is Black
Label and VB (Victoria Bitter). Being our Admin girl, she
multi tasks and run around the office all the time. Guess
that’s why she is always hungry then.
Being one of the prettiest girls in the office, she has many
suitors too, which often benefited us. Her suitors tend to buy
foods and snacks for the office in pretence to get into her. Regardless
of their efforts, she remains loyal to her fiancé whom
she met 5 years ago. They are getting married in 2008.
The “designer chic” is what you
should call her. She is the one behind all the beautiful
and excellent websites Flexihostings have. “Do not
disturb” is often what you get and see when you are
near to hear. She will bite and bark at you when she is
disturbed from her work. But once her project is finished,
she will crack the funniest jokes on you that you often
forget about all the bite marks she has left on your hand.
(Don’t bite me AZ…).
Although she demands full concentration and no disturbance, she
listens to rock songs to get her idea and being creative.
|The “new kid on the block” who just
joined Flexihostings not long ago. Having just graduated from
RMIT University, Zack is the freshest victim in the office.
He often got ‘bully’ by everyone, though we take
care of him like our little brother. He likes to crack jokes
on us and eats. Just like Shing, he could eat anything in
a flash without putting on weight. “I’m hungry…”
is what you often heard from him.
Our “DC Man” aka “Programming
Geek”. He’s our superman in Data Centre. He’s
the one, most of the time, responsible for all servers we
host (well..he’s the head anyway). “Computer
is in my blood. I can’t live a day without playing
with it” is what he claimed. We seriously think he
talks to his computer so much more than any human being.
You can always find him for any technical issue with the
servers. He’s the man!
|She’s gentle, motherly, full of advice
and knowledgeable. She handles design job as well as any technical
issue. Graduated from University of Canberra, she was once
a Barista for 3 years before moved to Melbourne. Hence, she
is also our “coffee lady”. With 15 years of working
experience on hand, she is one hell of Corporate lady.
She is cute, adorable, gentle, knowledgeable
in technical issues and annoyingly very humble. Being an
ex-newbie (Zack is the latest guy now), Kiera adapted extremely
fast to Flexihostings’ culture and work ethic. She
is also great sales woman.
Always ranked the first in the class and having double degree
in Computer Science and Industrial Engineering, she never spends
a single cent for her study. She always got scholarship throughout
her education life and extremely hardworking. Oh, did we mention
she’s cute, smart and humble? How annoying is that……?
|He handles billing, renewals, suspensions, terminations
and technical issues. Being a fast typist, he is extremely
slow when he eats. He is always the last to finish his meals,
even though he started first.
Graduated from TAFE NSW, he was born in Darwin, raised in Brisbane,
studied in Sydney and now works in Melbourne. Weird, he always
head to the South. Maybe his next destination will be New Zealand
er? He is also the ladies man, well, not in a bad way, but…he
sure does know how to make a woman feel like a princess.
She is a tough woman, extremely independent
and has an acute business mind. Being a single mother of
two, she treats us all like her children too. Originated
from Derby, she feels Australia is her home. It was all
started from a backpacked holiday 20 years ago. She was
awe by Australia culture and beauty and never took that
return flight to Derby.
“Never regret that decision” she says. Stella is
in charge of all those promotional items in Flexihostings, critical
issues, customers’ problems, sales and the websites.
