the I.T. team is owned and operated by hairyLemon founders Graham Dockrill and Sue Wilkinson.
Established in early 2000, hairyLemon has experienced rapid growth, developing into one of New Zealand’s leading digital agencies and making the Deloitte/Unlimited Fast 50 list for two years running as well as receiving numerous other accolades.
Known for its great culture, friendly people and innovative approach to business, hairyLemon continues to expand and set new standards for service delivery.
the I.T. team was formed from hairyLemon’s existing I.T. department, Lemon+aid, who provided I.T. services to hairyLemon and a number of hairyLemon clients. The Lemon+aid team were also responsible for managing hairyLemon’s web hosting environment.
At the start of 2011 Graham and Sue made a strategic decision to separate off Lemon+aid and create a separate business entity around the delivery of I.T. services. They rebranded the company as ‘the I.T. team’ with the intention of positioning us to support the growing demand from businesses for cloud based I.T. services, software and online backup.
In 2012, the I.T. team were one of the first businesses to move back into Christchurch's former CBD, taking up ground floor space in the new building on the former Westende Jewellers site in Manchester St. That lease agreement came to an end in late 2013 as a result of plans to widen Manchester Street under the CCDU and the company will be relocating again to the Strange's building on the corner of Lichfield and High Streets. At the same time, the company has opened it's first office outside of Christchurch, with a full time staff member now based in Moray Place, Dunedin to help support Otago based clients.
The I.T. team’s objective is to make it easier for New Zealand businesses to connect with I.T. services, reduce the cost of I.T. to business owners and enable greater opportunity to develop and grow by freeing up resources, and empowering a more flexible work model.
