Meet The Team

Steve Bakker

Managing Director

Steve began at ComputerLand as a software support person a long time ago and loved it. There was lots of consolidation in the Australian IT industry at the time and ownership bounced around.

Steve began at ComputerLand as a software support person a long time ago and loved it. There was lots of consolidation in the Australian IT industry at the time and ownership bounced around. Later Steve moved to the public sector where he had three employers in two years close. That was when it was time to start his first IT Business. New Age Solutions was built from scratch and sold 21 years later to Steve’s first employee. For a few years of rest Steve became involved in a number of not-for-profit organisations, most of which he continues to support. In 2017 some former clients lured me back into the IT industry when Business IT Pros was born.
I love the variety of the work that we do and watching our clients grow and succeed.
Outside of work Steve likes to ride e-assisted devices including mountain bikes, skateboards, and recently started e-foiling. Also enjoy helping a Myanmar charity called New Life Trust and taking our dog Bozo to the Qld Children’s Hospital with Delta Therapy Dogs.
