Bede founded seedigital with his Wife Melanie in 2003. He has had an eclectic career starting out selling photocopiers, through sales management, management consulting in the UK through to human resources at Telecom New Zealand.
In 1998 he realised the potential of the internet & digital technologies as an enabler & destroyer of existing ways of doing things. seedigital's offerings come from this realisation.
Bede's role at seedigital is primarily new customer focused, with a lot of herding cats inbetween.
Bede is Husband to Melanie, Father to 3 stunning children and 2 furry people; Molly (Cat) and Lottie (Dog)- He is a lover of architecture, design, mountain biking, reading books through to sunny tropical holidays!
Andrew joined the seedigital team in 2007. In his previous life, after completing a B.Com at Canterbury University, he held various management positions in the aquatic and movie industries, culminating as General Manager for Reading Cinemas.
Although a keen learner, his skill set doesn’t extend to being on the tools (read between the lines). He can be found most days directing the traffic and making sure we deliver on our promises.
Apart from the business, Andrew’s passion is his family and travel.
Melanie is our Accounts person and all of the herding cats that this entails!
Melanie started her career as a dedicated, over worked primary school teacher. After a stint in London working in the nuclear power industry (for real!), she returned to New Zealand and worked as a computer trainer.
This lead to another career as an instructional designer working across both public & private sector clients. Melanie has the knack of breaking down highly complex technical information into bite sized, easy to understand chunks!
She loves architecture, good authentic conversation, boot camp, mountain biking and sharing holidays with Bede & the Kids!
