Steve Wallis lives to solve problems.
He’s built his own house, his own car, his own boat and continuously builds his own computers and technology.
He joined Fleetwood in 1996 after one of the Directors asked him to help him out with a computer problem after a game of Rugby. Soon Steve led Fleetwood’s IT department and then was given a roving commission as Chief Technology Officer.
Fleetwood owns and operates Searipple Village, a 1,500 room mining
accommodation facility in the Pilbara. Steve saw a problem to be solved with technology and convinced Dominic to allow him to conduct research and development.
Seven years later Glyde was born.
Dominic joined Fleetwood in 2008. He is responsible for Fleetwood’s accommodation facilities. Steve convinced him to fund an R&D project into how to solve problems with technology at Searipple.
He kept funding him but Steve continually asked for more. In 2016 he convinced himself that Steve have produced something that could be a paradigm shift in accommodation services. In 2017 Glyde was applied to Searipple and in 2018 Glyde was established as a stand-alone business.
When Dominic decided to create Glyde as a standalone business in 2018 he realised he needed someone to sell it. Ben convinced Dominic and Steve that he was the guy. Ben is very experienced in the start-up world. He can see an opportunity, live on a shoestring, and deliver success. He understands people and how to best communicate a value proposition.
