Vitalii Symon


Director and Head of Development

Vitalii was born in the USSR, moved to Ukraine with his family and started learning IT. By the age of 21 he had a Master’s degree.

He began working with Amreeta Abbott in 2008, originally from overseas and then he moved to Australia permanently at the end of 2011. With her decision to change the operational model the focus has massively shifted onto IT and Vitalii has been in charge of all the tech innovation, development and operations. He manages a growing team of developers working on what he calls a ‘vortex’ of dynamic tech development – one that is continuously evolving and adapting to client feedback and needs.
