We started with five and we’ve grown our
leadership to a few more…
With over ten years of experience in construction technology, you'd think I'd tire of it. But that's not happening. Like the best AFL teams (Richmond Tigers), performance and productivity in construction comes from constant collaboration, a solid foundation of development, and methods to help team players be more productive, and perform at their best. That's why I moved into HammerTech. Because we help construction do just that. And I'm keen on using my experience to advance the industry with what I believe is the best software around. Plus, I have five kids and one grandkid to support! So, I need to keep going…
Brad TaboneCo-Founder & COO
Coming into the construction tech industry, I saw tons of promise. Based on 14 years of business experience in finance and construction, I am obsessed with operational excellence and business improvement. I know that great tech solutions need to start in the field and be developed for the end user (not the other way around). And I've worked meticulously to help design our software to be easily implemented in organizations. Given my fan boy-esque love of change management, our solution takes into consideration the long game and making sure there is less pain down the road while making sure the solution is sustainable for our clients. And don't get me started on how to improve productivity! I might not stop.
While I'm generally very focused on business, you should know that I have a few great loves... my wife, my work, travel, and of course Aussie Rules Football.
James HarrisCo-Founder & CTO
James is passionate about building powerful SaaS platforms, that empower people to focus on their core business.
I bring over 18 years industry experience in both software development and IT operations. In an age where innovation is occurring at a breakneck pace I understand the first and foremost - performance, reliability and security are the core foundations of any successful product.
When not at my desk, you'll find me running trails through the Dandenongs and Yarra Valley.
Andrew HogbenCo-Founder & VP Client Relations - North America
Coming from an entrepreneurial family, I followed in their footsteps and started my first business within the technology realm in 2005. After 10 years of growing, learning and leading successful teams, I decided to join forces with Ben, Brad, James and Lucas to build what we all believe is a platform designed to change the way construction thinks about operations and safety. I joined HammerTech and moved to Seattle to help expand our platform and our US team. As an avid runner, sports fanatic, and drummer, I chose a great city, an amazing country, and am leading an expanding team of passionate professionals. While I still follow Aussie rules football, the Seahawks are my new home team. Go Hawks!
Sarah RoeImplementation Operations Manager
With over 15 years of experience in Construction and Project Management, I was excited to join HammerTech as one of the first employees. Having seen my fair share of information management systems, I use this knowledge to work with our clients to find the best configuration solution for them. But life is not all IMS’s and configurations … with two young, very cheeky children, I also have extensive knowledge of Paw Patrol and Barbie.
Ben LeachCo-Founder & Head of Client Relations - APAC
I love people. I have been involved in the construction industry for near on 20 years and I head up new business and client engagement for APAC. Building relationships based on trust and honesty underpins my philosophy on business. Outside of work, you will find me at local cafes in Melbourne or in the park with my young family.
Virginia Chere LucettVP Global Marketing
I was fortunate to join HammerTech after a few years in construction tech, and decades in healthcare. I fell in love with construction years ago, and can't wait to see the future growth in the industry. I'm a huge proponent of the industry, technology, and of course I am passionate about marketing. A Chicagoan, since removed, I'll gladly go on about the Bears, Cubs, Bulls and Blackhawks. So best not to get me started!
