The Apexhost team

David Hutchison - Founder

David Hutchison is the founder of Apexhost and is still very actively involved in today. David is self educated, self motivated, and simply thrives with a challenge. He never stops...always looking at better ways to do things. His interest in computers began at an early age, and in the 1980s he landed his first job as a technician for AMF (tenpin bowling centres). In 1985, he was part of the team that installed the first color computer scoring system in Australia. David remained in this industry for 20 years and installed 1000s of lanes of computer systems all over South East Asia..

In the late 1990s David became fascinated by the Internet and as a result started creating websites for clients. Frustrated with the lack of support and seemingly endless outages from hosting providers he decided to do it himself. Apexhost started with one home made server in a data centre in Melbourne. In 1999, he started Apexhost with the simple aim of "Great support" "Great service" and "Great equipment".

Now has 1000s of clients using our hosting services, from all over Australia and Asia. Now, in 2014, celebrates 15 years of specializing in Windows hosting, DOT NET hosting with SQL server.

We're passionate about what we do

Phoebe Hutchison - Admin / Sales Team Leader

Phoebe Hutchison is in charge of customer service and assists with billing. While Phoebe does have help with admin/reception, from Anne, Breanna, Bryony and others in the admin office, Phoebe is in charge of the Complaints Department. In this role, she is rarely called upon, as clients rarely complain.

Phoebe views her role as ensuring the client is happy. Phoebe loves talking to the clients, finds it relaxing to do data entry, and feels fulfilled by this role. Phoebe loves to be more than admin, assists with support, and has been known to enjoy going to the data centre, and helping out.

She is a self-professed nerd, perfectionist, slight control freak, and has finally accepted that this industry is all about she no longer resists change. Phoebe gets excited about helping the support team, with some phone support.
