Five values underscore all that we do:
Theta began back in 1995, when five independent contractors, with a prod in the right direction from Steve Saunders (who went on to become our first CEO, from 2007-2010) got together to form a company. We called it a “virtual company” back then, thinking that sounded better than saying we didn’t have an office.
We have an office now – four in fact! In 2000 we moved into Theta’s first premises, in Auckland’s Albert Street. Three years later we had outgrown that space and signed the lease on what is still part of Theta HQ today, in Beresford Square.
The acquisition of Wellington-based Prophesy and opening an office in the capital in 2011 were the first steps towards a more nationwide presence.
In 2019 we completed our fourth significant acquisition, of Ellerslie-based Microsoft Partner Designertech.
In 2002 we updated our company structure with the appointment of a managing director and our first independent director. Steve Saunders became our first CEO in 2007, and current CEO Rob Lee took the helm three years later.
One of our founders, Matt Owen, still works in the business; as does our first ever staff member. And of the four customers we had when we started out, three are still customers.
Theta’s Azure experience, consultants who know the council and its environment well, and strong communications were all part of this project’s success.
