Jason Poyner; Founder & CEO
Deptive’s founder, Jason Poyner, is passionate about creating success in the digital workplace. However, unlike most other tech guys, he grew up on a farm in the back blocks of Northland, New Zealand. These years of hard work on the farm can now be seen in the Deptive culture, with honesty, accountability, and classic Kiwi ingenuity in spades.
Jason’s love of technology inevitably drove him to venture down south to the big smoke, pursuing studies in Electronic and Computer Technology at MIT in Auckland. After gaining solid New Zealand IT experience, in 2003 Jason, together with his lawyer wife, Emma, headed overseas and he immersed himself in the US IT market. This valuable international experience solidified Jason’s belief that people are at the heart of all organisations.
Seeing a gap in the New Zealand and Australian markets for a team of dedicated digital workspace specialists, a team that understands that people are #1, Jason stepped out and created Deptive in 2006. Emma’s legal experience was invaluable in setting up the company and establishing the legal compliance processes needed when dealing with Deptive’s large NZ and international-based clients. Emma became Deptive’s go-to person for any legal issues, from employment and immigration to commercial and privacy.
Now, Jason sits as Deptive’s Founder & CEO, and when he’s not running the company or entertaining his two children, he’s busy snowboarding, mountain biking, or just relaxing at his Auckland home.
