Guy Lowe
Systems & Network Administrator

Guy joined HD in 2009, when it was still a web hosting provider with a couple of leased racks operating out of Ben's house. He has since become one of HD's core staff members, helping build HD into what it is today - and has since finished the Computer Science degree he was halfway through at the time.

Guy has an active interest in all things operational and enjoys spending time with his daughter in the weekends.

He's a keen boater, you may seem him sailing on the Hauraki Gulf this summer!
