David Halberg - Senior Systems Engineer
David Halberg
Experience: David joined the team is October 2020. He comes with a wealth of knowledge and experience in Cloud Based PABX systems, Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Azure. He’s accustomed to carrying out engineering work and providing technical support to businesses in Townsville and across North West Queensland since 2009. Any tech would love to have his skills and experience. He started his career in IT as Owner/Manager of an IT business in the UK from 1990-2001.
Prior to migrating to Australia, David took a break from IT and worked as a chef in a variety of pubs and restaurants in the UK. Although he was supposed to be taking a break, his talents were employed to design menus, stock control sheets and managing websites. In his spare time David rides a Harley Davidson and is building his own container home. Certainly a can-do type of guy that is great to have around.
David Whiffin - Senior Systems Engineer
David Whiffin
Experience: David joined the team at “The Computer Workshop Townsville” in September 2016 after he sold his business “XenTek Computer and Laptop Repairs” to Chris. Dave worked in IT in Western Australia and South East Queensland for over 15 years until he moved to Townsville in 2008. Since 2008 Dave’s knowledge and skills have increased each and every day. We consider Dave one of our senior IT service consultants - not because of his age but because, if you give him a job, consider it done. You don’t even need to follow it up. Give it to Dave, it’s done. His absolute specialties include Office 365, Website Hosting & Migration and all things DNS related. He has the ability to pick up anything on the fly. He now has well over 20 years of experience and is not only our friend but an incredible technician. We are lucky to have him.
David is a dedicated husband and father and outside of work enjoys building websites and the finer things in life.
Barry Lollo - Senior Systems Engineer
Barry Lollo
Experience: Having Barry join “The Computer Workshop Townsville” in March 2018 has been vital to the growth of our business and our work in the Health Care Industry. Barry is known as an educator and is respected by all whom he comes in contact with. His ability to be the “White Knight” in any problem situation is a credit to him. His influence on Chris has been instrumental and extremely invaluable. His incredible experience working in the Divisions of General Practice, Medicare Locals, and NAPHL for over 15 years has helped the many medical centers we have as clients. His skillset in Hardware, Operating Systems, Databases and Software Development has made him integral to our continued growth. He is commonly sought out by past colleagues as someone to “run something past you” as his opinion and experience is valued by all. He is an absolute professional to any and all that he comes into contact with.
Barry has been in the technical service industry since 1978. Typical of IT enthusiasts, all things IT are what consumes his time outside of work. He is a dedicated father and loving husband. It’s fair to say “Barry raises the standard of the entire team because of his influence”. We love having Barry around.
