About Us

You can’t be on-site all of the time: this is something we all come to learn at some point in health & safety. No matter how prepared you think you are, no matter how well-trained your team, you can’t be there 24/7 to watch, report hazards and intervene. This problem was our spark of inspiration - how do we make it easier to do H&S from afar?


Site App Pro was built by software experts in consultation with construction experts to make site safety simpler. Our goal from the beginning was to create an all-digital platform that took the difficulty out of H&S and made it so easy that it could be done in seconds, even on a busy work site, and even on the go. By making H&S entirely paperless, it’s a piece of cake for leaders, H&S reps and even workers to stay on top of their site risks and keep each other safe. 


We launched the first version of Site App Pro in 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand, and have grown steadily since then to become the digital H&S management app of choice for hundreds of organisations and thousands of construction workers and professionals around the world.

Our Growth

Since Site App Pro version 1 in 2017, our list of clients has grown nearly 3,000% - and it’s still racing upwards. In that time, we’ve worked hard to improve the lifetime value of our app and to constantly iterate and improve its features. We remain in close contact with members of the industry, ensuring that Site App Pro delivers best-practice H&S in an engaging, useful digital format. This quality shows in the number of customers who are still with us since those early days!

Our Team

Meet the faces behind Site App Pro

Jim Quinn

Jim Quinn
Chairman

Jim brings to bear over five decades of commercial experience and wisdom to Site App Pro. He’s our mentor, our strategist, our guiding hand and a man with his eyes firmly on the big picture.

But Jim isn’t all business. Here’s a man who knows his music, having been a long-time rock aficionado and whose happy place is the mosh pit.

Site App Pro’s governance is in extremely good hands with this living legend in the mix.

Rolly

Rolly Rogers
Board Member

One of NZ’s original tech entrepreneurs, Roly was building software when ‘code’ came on cardboard with holes in it.

Roly is a life-long innovator. Remember the Cassiopeia? Couriers used to collect electronic signatures on it - thanks to Roly. It was a technological first; one of many for his career.

If you can’t find Roly at the office, he’ll be off on an adventure. Targa Rallies, diving 40m off Great Barrier - Roly can really stake his claim to “been there, done that”.

Michael

Michael Hartley
Chief Executive Officer

Michael is a serial CEO tech entrepreneur. In fact, we’ve heard him say “this will be the last one” so many times no one believes him anymore. And we’re glad he keeps going.

Recently Michael took up yoga and meditation to lower his golf handicap. But that’s only if you can get him on the fairway - his happy place is below the surface of the ocean, where Michael seems determined to meet every one of the sharks living in the Hauraki Gulf.

Trish Love

Trish Love
Chief Financial Officer

Shall we tick off the list of Trish’s accomplishments? Entrepreneur, investor, accountant, financial mentor, published author.

Trish’s aspiration is to help as many people as possible to understand what is holding them back financially. This gives her a certain wisdom and generosity that helps keep Site App Pro on the straight and narrow.

Outside of work Trish hangs out with her husband and four kids, umpiring netball games, relaxing with a book, writing or meditating. Not your everyday accountant!

Greg Hart

Greg Hart
Head of Product

We’re not sure how Greg became one of NZ’s best UX designers and SaaS marketers. Somehow it started with tunnelling, moved through ostrich farming and evolved into travelling the globe as a rock guitarist. He claims he “just has talent” but most of us have decided he was abducted by aliens.

So what’s next for this multi-talented guy? That’s right you guessed it - launching his own craft beer. Sign us up as taste testers!

Kale

Kale Buchanan
Product Analyst

Coming out of a study background which blurred him between the lines of design & development with a little business on top, Kale looks to bring that all together as a creative soup and thrive in the complex product space.

Outside of the office, you’ll find him off on an adventure, anywhere from a hike a couple of days into the bush, to finding which one of his favourite bands are playing in town. 

 

 

FT 1

Forsyth Thompson
Head of Growth

As Forsyth likes to remind us - he’s been in the online world longer than Google, with over two decades’ experience. He’s worked for most of New Zealand’s biggest brands at this point, with roles in marketing, data & analytics, and growth.

Here’s a man whose wife says he has too many hobbies. Boating, fishing, diving, running, endurance cycling - if he’s not at Site App Pro, he’s probably outdoors putting the rest of us to shame.

Lucy Carter
Performance Designer

When Lucy came out of university with her degree in Industrial Design, she knew she wanted to work with a tech company that shared her passion for simplifying "annoying tasks".

In her spare time, Lucy loves to spend her days in, on and around the water. If she's not on top of it paddleboarding, you can find her diving beneath the waves snorkelling or casting a fishing line to see what she can catch.

Ryan

 

Ryan Hartley
Head of Sales

I've been with Site App Pro before it had the "Pro" on the end (2015). I started working for Site App while I was finishing my degree then moved into a full-time role as the only sales rep once I finished my BA. I then moved into > Business Development Manager > Head of Sales.

Some say I was born for the role here at Site App Pro as my dad and his best mates started Site App back in 2014. I absolutely love sales, hustling, cold calling, managing new reps and everything sales. 

Ryan is the team member most likely to use emojis whenever he writes a message 🔥, Spearfishing, Diving and surfing with the more than odd craft beer.

Maddy Caro-1

Maddy Caro
Business Development Manager

Arts degree, an acting diploma. A rising star of our sales team, Maddy, proves every day, that it's not about ego, testosterone or bluster, it is all about empathy passion and attention to detail.

Maddy's, keen intellect, inquisitive style, and engaging communications gives our clients a strong internal advocate. Maddy takes the term digital natives to another level, making the software work for her customers.

 

Storm

Storm McDonald
Inbound Sales Specialist

Storm promises us that he used to work hard at his previous job in radio, but when he describes his life it sounds like it's all bantering with listeners, going to concerts and giving things away for free.

Then Ryan sold him on the dream of working in sales for a tech company, and he hasn't looked back.

But, the love is still there; Storm is an avid concertgoer and vinyl collector, and enjoys spending time with his young family.

Toby

Toby Sharp
Inbound Sales Specialist

Toby is the newest sales specialist to join the Site App Pro team, finding his way to us after his Bachelors of Business because he wanted to "work for a company that was pushing boundaries". 

Now, this is certainly a man to stay friends with. While Toby tinkers with websites to fund his hobbies, he brews his own beer and works to perfect his cocktails. Well, he's got a lot of willing test subjects right here!

 

 

John Clarkson

John Clarkson
Head of Technology

An engineer’s engineer, John is on the pursuit for perfection. He’s an advocate for the SaaS methodology and has baked his commitment to excellence into our product designs and road map.

But what does he get up to when he’s not at the office, participating in one of our favourite office pastimes of baiting the sales team? John is a team sportsman: soccer in winter, cricket in summer, sprinkled with tramping in between.

Ivan Surya

Ivan Surya
Software Developer

To Ivan, bugs in our backend and database code are a personal affront - and he won’t rest until the issues are resolved. He’ll passionately argue for customer results and can tackle support issues at lightning speed.

Ivan also visits more countries per year than the rest of our team combined. The Wanderlust is strong with this one - he says he once applied for a role at Lonely Planet, but didn’t want to mess up his travel with all that writing.

Michael Jones

Michael Jones
Product Analyst

Michael is our rising star, quick on the uptake and proving incredibly popular with the rest of our team for his ability to test, test and test again.

Named after the world’s best rugby openside, Michael had his own rugby career cut short by a broken collar bone. To play it safe, he’s decided to take up safer sports - like mountain biking, football, tennis and skiing. Needless to say that collar bone is in safe hands.

Jacob Allen
Mobile/Frontend Software Engineer

Jacob is practically one of the family here at Site App Pro. A good friend of Ryan's, he brings with him to our team his experience as a full-stack developer and a qualification in Computer Systems Engineering.

Jacob is into photography and music as well, and when we asked him about his hobbies and interests he said, "Evidently not very good at writing About Us sections." That's absolutely fine! Because he's a rockstar with computers, and knows how to build an amazing product.

6153b2ea93d9a24d501f6666_sophie

Sophie Quinn
Head of Customer Success

A career in professional dance may not be a traditional background for a support specialist, but perhaps it's her ability to stay in step with our customers and make our software sing that makes Sophie such an amazing customer advocate.

As if that wasn’t enough, Sophie is also a pilates instructor on the side and is passionate about exercise. So, she’s helping our customers find success as well as the general public! What a legend.

Joshie

Josh Winthrop
Customer Champion

Before Site App Pro, Josh was a part of Greenpeace - where he built his skills in helping and educating others. That love of helping people led him to Site App Pro, where we're all about making life easier for our customers.

Josh prides himself in not taking things too seriously, and is another one of our growing squad of Site App Pro musicians - although we'll have to pull him away from his own band if we're to snaffle him for our own.

Phoebe Cettina
Customer Champion Lead

Imagine the perfect Customer Champion. Are you picturing Phoebe? We hope so! Phoebe comes to us eminently qualified, with BAs in Politics and International Relations, and Philosophy. She has a passion for working with companies that help others, so it’s no surprise that before Site App Pro she was with Greenpeace.

As for Phoebe outside of office hours, she's currently learning how to skateboard, and presuming she doesn't break her bones in the course of that activity she's a big-time reader and budding baker.

Lola

Lola
Customer Relations

We couldn’t decide on an Office Dog or Office Cat. So, we played it safe and got a unique mix of both. Lola bears all the sloth characteristics of cats, but still shows that wonderful doggy infatuation for humans.

Unfortunately, that infatuation doesn’t extend to other dogs - which she sees as an existential threat. Or perhaps she’s protecting us? Let’s say she’s protecting us.

A good lunch date, we think she is happiest at the lounge bar at our local pub, she makes a sport of finding new places in the office to sleep, and is the chief suspect in any food thefts.

dean

Dean Weaver
Head of Procurement

Dean is one of the many highly experienced experts here at Site App Pro. He's been around the block, with jobs at major Kiwi brands like Vector and Vodafone, as well as a number of years spent working in the UK.

As a parent, Dean spends a lot of time with his kids - which is one of the reasons he joined Site App Pro, where he has the job flexibility to both be a super professional and a super dad.

 

 

Kirsty

Kirsty Dunn
Finance Manager

Kirsty is proof that there’s no experience for sharpening your organisational and communication skills quite like 15 years of raising three children.

Coming from a commerce, logistics and start-up background, Kirsty brings an enormous degree of talent and knowledge to the Site App pro team. She’s also a natural competitor, always on her A-game whether she’s at work, out on the tennis courts or hot on the trail of other “spirited women”.
