We'd like you to meet our Technology Consulting Manager - Glendin Franklin-Browne.

1. What is your role at Diamond?

I am Diamond IT's Technology Consulting Manager.

I am responsible for managing and growing the consultancy practice at Diamond IT. I bring with me over 23 years’ experience in the ICT industry primarily on the customer's side. I've worked in industries such as local government, education, finance, hospitality, entertainment, not for profit, aged care, utilities, and property management all under the banner of running, enabling and driving technology best practice and innovation.

2. What do you like most about working at Diamond?

I enjoy the family feel about the organisation and how everyone is very enthusiastic about technology, and providing quality solutions to our clients.

3. Why did you choose to enter the field?

I had a passion for Technology from a very young age - not just in Computers but in electronics and amateur radio. This passion was a major factor in getting my first full time job as an IT Engineer straight out of high school.

4. If you could meet anyone, living or dead who would you choose?

Ari Vatanen, winner of the World Rally Championship in 1981 and one of the most dynamic rally drivers to ever get behind the wheel of a Mk II Ford Escort.

5. People would be surprised to know...
