Rob entered the computer industry after leaving the RAN in 1980. His first eight years were spent in the technical services arena, predominantly working with IBM 3270 systems and Memorex Telex. Rob transitioned from technical to sales at a time when the first PCs were introduced. In 1989 he and a colleague established Silicon Data which grew into a leading Queensland-based reseller before being acquired by Volante in 1999. After a brief sabbatical in hospitality he joined with David to establish TLCiTS where his focus has been on business development.
David had completed nine years in banking and finance, when in 1985 he embarked on his IT career with a clear focus on emerging "mobile computing" technologies. In 1991 he pioneered programs that facilitated the introduction of "notebooks in schools". David's roles included business development, sales management at a local and national level and company director. In 2002 he joined with Rob to establish TLCiTS where his prior industry experience was directed toward managing all aspects of the financial, operational and delivery outcomes for TLCiTS and Queensland Connector & Cables (QCC).
