Murray Mills

Senior Consultant

With over 17 years of experience in the Information Technology Industry, it would be fair to say I have seen technologies, solutions, and companies come and go. I have had the opportunity to work in different size and scale of companies that offer unique experiences and demonstrate the ever-changing and evolving landscape of the industry. What hasn’t changed and what I am proud to be part of is the ongoing mantra that technology should be the enablement of good business, and that ultimately IT should focus on improving and ensuring customer and business success.

I am proud to be working with Tecala Group as a Senior Consultant. My position allows me to be at the very forefront of not only technology, but the enablement of customer success.

My inspiration for getting on the train to work each morning is the trust that our customers place with us and the partnerships and yes, friendships that are created by the embodiment of the idea that “our customer’s success is the foundation of our success”.

When I am not at work, I’m not your standard IT guy. Very rarely do I touch a computer outside of work—unless I am helping out a customer. I don’t have the latest gaming station, or fancy computer with liquid cooling. Instead, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, and when I get the chance, I enjoy skiing holidays.

I can think of three of my major accomplishments in recent years:

  1. Completing an upgrade migration on a windows desktop fleet which saved both 6 months of the project timeline and over $1.5 million dollars. The upgrade was for approximately 10,000 devices, spread over 170 remote sites, and over 3 countries.
  2. Successfully completing a customer project on time and within budget which had been approved without consideration of the full IT requirements. The challenges of this project were around the security and compliance requirements of the IT environments including: over 3 layers of firewall; physical and virtual separation of computing and storage; encryption; and levels of integration between new and old applications being completed. At the end of the project we successfully built 120 servers, 800 desktops, and 30 applications.
  3. Through the Senior Consultant model, we have worked with Senior Management of the customer to create, approve, and implement a strategic roadmap which resolved identified security risks.

Pieter DeGunst
Managing Director

A whirlwind of ideas and constantly moving. That’s how most people would characterise Pieter, even after a brief encounter. His drive, energy, and the speed at which he thinks and talks strikes you immediately, as does his skill in blue-sky-thinking and tactical deep-diving.

Lisa Charbel
Account Executive

I have always worked in the technology industry. I joined Tecala because they had a great story to tell. An Australian business that doesn’t offshore. A projection of great growth, long term customers that consistently re-signed and a business full of passionate employees that are all working towards the same success. At monthly business updates we celebrate 5 and 10 year anniversaries of our staff, to me that is a strong message!

Mohammed 'Mo' Nabeel
Service Engineer, Level 1

Before I came to Tecala, I was going onto my 6th year working in a very well-paying job as a security officer. One day I had an epiphany and decided to pursue a career in IT. I seized the first opportunity I could get, but it took one whole year and two companies later to finally discover a place that I love. I felt accepted from day one in Tecala and, even crazier, I realised that I had improved my skills in just one week at Tecala compared to the months I had worked in my previous company.
