As co-founder and Director I started with a vision of Acquire being the most successful eCommerce company in NZ. The opportunity was there as in 2001 eCommerce companies were folding globally. I knew they had the formula wrong; people make a company successful, not just a website. Fast forward to today: we have the multiple award winning team and best technology in the country. I can’t wait for the next chapter in Acquire’s success, it’s just about to start…

The rate of evolution in the tech industry is very exciting and like an insatiable child I can't wait to see what comes next. I really enjoy being in the business whilst working on the business and customer service excellence is my favourite wish. We are a business born in the cloud and I want to enhance our digital journey to continuously equal better than yesterday and our commercial relativity to be ahead at the post.

Sales Manager

A lot can be said about a company that retains happy, loyal staff… I began my Acquire career in their first year of inception – 2001! We value the close, long-term relationships with our customers, distributors and vendors. Having the breadth and fast moving pace of products and vendors within the Technology Industry certainly does not allow for boredom. My journey with Acquire has allowed for plenty of travel within our beautiful country and around the world. Now with small kids it is more about swimming and playground visits :)

I joined the Acquire Family in February 2017 after 17 years in IT distribution. I have always been a Loyal HP Brand Ambassador and Product Evangelist and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with a company that is as passionate about IT as I am.

Monique Tipler

Business Development Manager

I have been with Acquire since 2014, and like some of my colleagues I dealt with Acquire in my previous Vendor role. I always said if I changed career & decide to work for a Reseller there is only one Reseller I want to join. It has been a fantastic journey, growing Acquire’s client base with new customers I’m out talking the Acquire story to. We are a small close team which I love, but our results are significant. The awards we received from key vendors yearly also reflects how well we are doing in the industry. I love the social aspect of our company also – we are very spoilt from our Vendors in experiences I wouldn’t have the opportunity to have if I didn’t’ do what I do. Here’s to another awesome year, now with our new website launched I believe it is going to be exciting times ahead.

I have been with Acquire a few years now and am enjoying every minute. It is great to work in an industry that is constantly changing and keeping everyone on their toes. I am always happy to assist where possible and I have a friendly and proactive attitude towards my customers needs. Being the token Aussie here at acquire, I like to keep things humorous and simple. 
I enjoy playing golf, cricket and juggling my two kids in my spare time.

I started my career in the I.T industry in 2011. Over the years I've loved seeing the industry evolve and grow into what it is today. I joined the Acquire team in 2015 after hearing about the amazing company culture. I must say they haven't disappointed. What I love about Acquire is that we are a small close knit team doing amazing things! We're passionate about our work and customers have and always will be our core focus. My Loves in life are Travelling, Food and Wine, Game of Thrones and the All Blacks!

I initially started in the IT industry back in 2007 and loved working with the Acquire team so decided to join them in 2009. I really enjoy working with our customers and the fast pace of the IT industry and keeping up with the latest Gadgets and Trends. I revel in our customers success and helping them to achieve their technology goals.

Candice Cunningham

Business Relationship Manager

I joined the Acquire team in 2010 after working closely with them in distributor land, and haven’t looked back since. I have always been passionate about technology and after studying IT Engineering I decided I wasn’t near nerdy enough to stay in that field so thought IT sales was a good compromise in order to stay in the ever changing world of technology! And I absolutely love it!!! When I’m not at work I love spending time with my family, watching movies and of course gaming every chance I get!

I've worked at Acquire in various roles for over 10 years. The incredible team we've built over that time keeps me coming back. The unique challenges and problem-solving opportunities Acquire provides have helped me grow personally and professionally. When I'm not in the office you'll find me on the sports field with my family, networking and meeting new people, or maybe even hosting a local pub quiz.

I am the dreaded Accounts Lady. Previously worked in the Publishing/Advertising industry and now in the IT industry.

Really enjoy working for Acquire as we have an amazing group of people working hard to help the company evolve and grow. Outside of work I enjoy time with my family and we love to engage in most outdoor activities.
