About us

Why we’re here

We have a very simple way of looking at software deployment and systems integration. Our plea to any business who may be tempted to dabble in something they’re not fully up-to-speed with is this: if you can’t get something right, then please leave it to someone who can…

Between us, we have more than 25 years’ experience working in big organisations across the public and private sectors. We know first-hand what it takes to get a deployment right – and we also know the sheer frustration that can stem from botched integrations and implementations that simply are not fit for purpose.

At Goldstar, we’re committed to delivering a better way forward. As a start, we’re not in the business of ‘selling’ software. By getting to know your people and your business, we work with you hand-in-hand to get to the bottom of what you need – and not those vague offerings you may have been told that you need.

Expertise, honesty – along with the appreciation of some fun along the way: these are what make us a one-stop-shop for business transformation.

After spending the last 10 years working in event management, I felt it was time to pursue something different and found what I was missing in software development. In my free time I'm either travelling around the world or enjoying food and TV shows.

I’m a lifelong learner, an advocate for pushing personal boundaries and pursuing new experiences. The constantly evolving nature of technology fascinates me, and I'm passionate about everything associated with it.

As a Marketing Manager, I love the challenge of solving problems and puzzles. My work is founded on building open, trusted, relationships to deliver effective, team-driven results. Away from the office I‘m still focused on creative problem solving and teamwork, I have to be as I’m a Bassist in a blues rock band and enjoy being a Dad to a very energetic, inquisitive daughter!
