Tony Snow is CE of Tauranga Based professional IT services support company Stratus Blue. Tony is not a tech-head, not an IT person and is amazed by the number of acronyms in the IT sector.


Graeme Frost

After serving in the Royal New Zealand Navy for 11 years as a Radio Electronics Technician and Defence Diver, Graeme became one of the first Information Systems Technicians in the Navy. What a great asset then he is to the team at Stratus Blue.

Ilse Skead

Welcome to Ilse who joins our team as Service Desk and Support Engineer


Kieran Surgenor

Kieran is one of our talented Engineers and provides Apple, audio visual and Windows support to our clients. He’s worked in IT for the past nine years so is pretty clued up about these things. 


Paul Andrew

Paul’s sole focus at Stratus Blue is making sure our client’s internet works – and let’s face it, that’s the most important job of all, right? He is originally from Thames but has lived in Tauranga for most of his life.


rose gilmore

Rose is the glue that holds Stratus Blue together. She honed her exceptional customer service skills while managing hotels for 17 years before switching focus and taking on a new professional challenge. 


Hamish Dean

Hamish keeps a low profile but that's a wise move - given how his technical prowess seems to be in such hot demand. With Hamish supporting you, you can rest easy knowing your I.T. is in good hands.


James Harrison

James was born and raised in Tauranga and loves helping fuel our clients’ business growth and being a part of an industry that changes almost daily. He’s our go-to guy when help is required, especially for Windows systems, VoIP or Office 365.
