Meet the Team


Sam Hammond

Director / Support Engineer
After developing a curiosity for computers when his parents bought home their first PC in the early 90’s, Sam has worked many roles in the industry - including at Clix Computer Centre back in 2009 😉 A Byron resident for over a decade with local knowledge and diverse industry experience, coupled with a keen problem solving mind, there is no tech challenge too big to take on! He established Byron Bay Computer Coach in 2010, evolving into and now

Josh Donvito

Support Engineer
Equipped with that innate curiousity to understand and solve problems combined with a positive, can do attitude, Josh is the guy you want on your side when dealing with any tech challenges! Born and raised in the Byron area, Josh has spent time in Melbourne working for NBN and Optus before joining the team in 2022. It all began for Josh when his dad owned a computer shop in Byron where he worked whilst growing up. Technology and tinkering is almost in his genes!

Lance Hastie

Support Engineer
Hailing from across the pond in New Zealand, Lance adds the international flair to the team 😉 He is legitimately a problem solving guru with a host of experience in electronics, websites, technology and media. Lance keeps one eye on our managed service clients' workstations and the other on the websites we service and maintain.

Mez Hammond

Accounts and Admin
Led by the need to keep up with her kids and their evolving technology needs Mez became an Accidental IT Manager in her work life. Now in semi retirement and armed with just her computer, she works from exotic places, keeping an eye on our finances and accounts. You never know where she's gonna be!

Ash Ordish

Admin and Operations
After many years in content, marketing and account management Ashley is the cheeky one behind all our social media and office operations. She prides herself on impeccable customer service and enjoys learning new systems and ways of streamlining processes and procedures. Outside of ITAC life, Ash has 2 little kids and a growing catering business - shout out to Platter Me Beautiful!

John & Karen - Owners

The Book Room Collective

Despite our best efforts to remain in the technological dark ages in the company of the other computer illiterates, has gently guided us towards tomorrow. Our computers now offer support rather than frustration. We have on-hand back up for hardware, software and data. A person answers the phone when we are in trouble. Most importantly we have learnt to turn it off and then on again.


Ian - Owner

Bluewater On The Beach

The ongoing, priority support we receive from is invaluable. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone or send an email and get a fast, local response. The intimate understanding of our business that they have built up over the years save us so much time, money and stress as they have taken the time to get to know us and the business inside out. It's like having an internal IT department, without the internal IT department costs!


Chris Taylor

Apricus Pty Ltd

Moving our head office from Sydney to Byron happened without any glitches thanks to the outstanding support from the ITAC team. Then move posed some significant business challenge especially when you consider that we are a national business that relies on its IT infrastructure to manage daily order processing and dispatch. I am please to say that thanks to the ITAC team our operations continued as normal and our daily operations were not disrupted in any way. Great support, great people."

How can we help?

"Ultimately, we look to establish long term relationships with our clients. We offer a range of technology services tailored to local businesses and managed by a single provider - us. So when something happens or you need something done, there's only one number you need to call - ours 🙂 

As a Partner client, we will get to know you and your business intimately, first solving the immediate issues and pain points, then we implement any relevant core systems to avoid those pain points in future and finally through doing this work and understanding your business further we can then start to innovate and work with you to really do some cool stuff!

Just imagine, rather than spending 2 hours trying to find the right person to solve the problem, spend 2 mins talking to us and the problem is solved!
