Meet our Directors


Simon Barker
Director of Sales and Marketing

​Simon's experience is long reaching and varied. Completing starter roles at both Herald Sun and IBM learning the fundamentals of desktop and applications support, Simon moved on to develop his personal and professional attributes working in a number of roles for a leading business in the SMS industry. This experience saw Simon progress through a number of different roles, focussing specifically on his strengths as a department manager, process improvement specialist, product manager and service desk manager working with a client base of over 10,000 users.

This wealth of role experience is now combined into his role at amisIT.

"IT is there to provide a competitive advantage to businesses, not more headaches" says Simon.  "Focus on the reason you started your business in the first place, and play to your strengths.  Partner with amisIT to let us play to ours and make your IT work for you not against you"

Michael Counsell
Head of Technology

Michael has many years experience in IT working and learning from the ground up.  Not only with practical software, but also hardware experience, his background in Electrical Engineering makes him the perfect piece to bring together this trio.

Now investing his time and energy into amisIT, Michael provides the skills and experience from his extensive career in the IT industry to drive the best practise implementation of technology with full respect of the various business types and budgets that amisIT work with.
