Emily is a serial over-achiever who is pathologically positive and oversees the creative and strategic direction of many of the projects we work on.
As a co-founder of the company Emily is pivotal in our user-centred approach, ensuring we really are creating something that will delight its users primarily, but also exceed our client’s business objectives.
Prior to forming Click Suite Emily had a very successful TV career including leading large and complex projects for TVNZ and NZ On Air where she commissioned NZ$50m of TV programmes annually. Emily has been a pioneer in the interactive industry and was appointed to the Prime Minister’s Growth and Innovation Advisory Board.
Emily is a popular speaker at various events, because her passion for new technology is infectious.
Possibly the world’s first amateur connoisseur cook trackable by GPS, Rex is the technical wizard behind Click Suite’s many and varied projects that combine innovative software with custom built hardware.
Rex leads the development team and looks after all technical matters particularly where we need to interface with other technologies. He has his eye on longevity and reliability.
A co-founder of Click Suite, Rex ensures we are ahead of the industry, watching and testing new developments and even developing many “world-first” technologies of our own. Before Click Suite, he created the first computer generated images on TV and his animations for iconic NZ television commercials have won international acclaim.
Rex’s work has attracted the attention of industry pioneers, including Steve Wozniak from Apple Computer.
Cristina has a brilliant combination of deep experience, great technical knowledge and a very people-orientated style of Project Management that sees problems solved, work tested and delivered, and happy teams on both client and supplier sides.
Cristina also manages our external resources, as we have a large family of trusted contractors that we work with, ensuring that we are all working as one united team and that contractors also deliver on time, on budget and to our exacting standards.
She has an eye for detail, and so helps us remain quality focused. Like the rest of the team, she loves her work and works to ensure everyone enjoys the experience just as much.
Cristina began managing creative people in 2002 when she was based in Brazil, working in her own web production company. She has a BA in both Graphic and Industrial Design as well as a certificate in Project Management from PMI. She’s extended her multi-tasking skills recently by becoming a mother for the second time; the ultimate test in prioritising, keeping everyone happy, and managing moving time schedules.
"I love the great environment and people at Click Suite, and there are always interesting projects on the go."
Making sure we all get paid on time is only one of Sheree's jobs at Click Suite. With an extensive accounting background, Sheree spends her time monitoring cash flow, keeping the IRD happy and sussing out any financial reporting for the directors.
Work/life balance is important to all of us, and Sheree says she gets it in droves. Outside of work Sheree says her other job is as a taxi driver for her two kids, who are up to all sorts of varied activities.
Sheree loves working within the creative industry and her ability to keep the financial wheels turning smoothly keeps the studio operating at the top of its game.
Chris has a background including a variety of development in roles in both back end (real under-the-hood stuff) and front end (making it all work on screen) and has eagerly, and impressively, embraced the latest Visa Wellington on a Plate website to make it shine.
He’s the one that makes things happen and he’s equally at home self-organising on a trello board as he is buried deep in code and figuring out how to make things work even better.
Chris is a great contributor to our quiz team (very important), our darts board, and is intriguing us all with his conversational Japanese. [Yokoso Chris!]
Meike’s love affair with Aotearoa began when she came to school in Mount Maunganui as an international exchange student. She went on to study Communication Design in Germany and started work as a designer in an agency in Hamburg, in 2012. With the agency’s focus on branding and corporate design, Meike was able to gather lots of experience in telling a client’s story, using a wide range of design principles and media, and learning from the very best.
Being very interested in web design and development, she expanded her skillset in those areas and soon found herself taking care of all the agency’s web related projects.
After returning to New Zealand in 2017, Meike has become a key member of the Click Suite team where she contributes her beautiful design and development skills to create high quality digital experiences.
When she’s not at Click Suite, Meike is out, exploring the outdoors of her new home and enjoying the great kiwi lifestyle.
If you think this would be your dream place to work – then Emily would love to hear what skills and experience you could offer us.
