Growing up in a home dominated by the Real Estate industry, it seemed inevitable that Tristan would one become involved himself. After earning his Bachelor, Tristan worked as the Accounts Manager for an agency for 3 years, before deciding to become his own boss.
Tristan set up shop as a bookkeeping and BAS lodgement agency and also began to establish his outsourcing business in the Philippines. The outsourcing venture began with a single staff member working from home but Demand soon outgrew that situation and a 10 person office was procured in Clark in the central area of Luzon. With the business growing rapidly another move was needed in 2012 to a nearby, spacious, modern office to accommodate 25 staff. Around the same time Tristan migrated from his home office to an upper-deck office space in the CBD of his native Ballarat.
As a youngster, Tristan developed a passion for electronics and digital technology, little realising how much his deep knowledge of I.T. and software would become an integral part of his future business.
Tristan is the back office specialist in Logiq. He might be found building and honing the implementations of Mark’s client analysis, programming and allocating HR resources in The Philippines, or tinkering at the back end of SQL reporting tools for dashboarding and data mining.
