The SYSeco Team

The Good, the Bad and the Not so Ugly...


Our Team was brought together by our passion to make a difference, to be the catalyst for positive change. Most of the team have children who they want to be able to look straight in the eye in the future and say "we made a difference" - that's why we're here, day in, day out, putting our time, experience and expertise into producing and managing the platform that joins the dots, that triggers and facilitates change. We don't consider ourselves "Disruptors", we're Helpers, and we're removing the barriers to the information, techniques and products to make life better. Here are a few words about us...

Marketing Director

Karen aka HB, comes from a large entrepreneurial family. She started with a career in computer systems sales when a 10mb drive cost over $700 before moving into websites & marketing for POS systems in '97. She then moved on to being responsible for marketing for a green building materials manufacturer after which she started her own Agency in 2012.

Technical Lead

Max - ex rockstar with over 10 years of coding experience and an inquisitive mind, Max likes nothing more than getting into the details of websites. He configures Search algorithms for fun, and collects stamps in his passport as he lives the eco-tourist lifestyle of "have laptop, will code and explore".

Furry Director

CoCo started life in a drawer at the SPCA with a broken-winged pigeon for best friend, but she knew she was destined for greater things. Soon adopted, she is always present for anything involving food or ear rubs, and protects the Team from all on-screen animals & squirrels. Keen critic of Telus commercials, big in character.
