Words by SwayTech. Team reimagined by AI.
“We talk about focus strategy, clarity and scale at SwayTech. We live and breathe this: as client outcomes and how we make it happen. But this only comes to life thanks to our passionate people who pride themselves on being part of the Sway team.”
Michael brings an immense passion for and experience in all levels of the tech sector. He’s grown businesses from the ground up, spent 15 years at IBM in senior international sales and marketing roles and served as head judge for the NZ Marketing Awards since 2018. He’s also held non-director positions on numerous boards and is regularly asked to share his insight with industry and academic audiences.
“It’s always exciting, as tech is forever changing. It enables the creation of things that didn’t exist to create solutions for problems of all scales and in all areas.”
When Bob Pinchin founded SwayTech, he wanted to help Kiwi tech companies reach their full potential. Thanks to 30 years of experience in the tech industry, he has a deep understanding of tech business needs and insider insight into the New Zealand market. Since then, SwayTech has supported over 400 tech companies, and Bob has become a strong advocate for the power of the tech industry in New Zealand.
Head of Brand & Creative
“I'm on a mission to dispel the misconception that a brand is a name, a logo, a tagline, a visual. When done well, the power of brand is unstoppable – it’s the fuel to drive sales and sustainable, long-term growth.”
With almost 25 years of marketing experience focused on branding, strategic support and consulting, Caroline helps business leaders connect with their audience, foster trust and loyalty and ultimately, drive growth, revenue and profits. As SwayTech’s Head of Brand and Creative, and a Virtual CMO, she understands a strong brand is crucial for sustainable differentiation and long-term success.
We’re playing the long game.
