“We will always be a company whose success is powered by fantastic people who enjoy winning, love the journey, and always look for ways to improve.”

Michael Russell Chief Executive Officer

By listening carefully to Origin’s clients and staff in the early days, Mike knew that what New Zealand businesses needed was an IT partner that provided such robust and unbroken support that they were freed up to focus on growth and innovation. Mike believes the key to Origin’s success is that it attracts talented people who are driven to understand people and their needs first; technology and its benefits second.

Mike brings his wealth of experience from his unique position as the founder of Origin, along with his client and industry relationships and passion for the company, to work every day. His key responsibilities are to ensure that clients have a great experience, that the business is commercially sound and that Origin has the kind of culture that attracts and retains talented people.
