Who is Stevie?

Meet Jo Harris

Co-founder & CEO

Jo is the ringleader of the Stevie crew. She has successfully navigated career moves from nursing to co-founding an online retail brand, where she excelled to be voted one of the Top 50 people in e-commerce. Drawing on her startup experience, determination, as well as a genuine love of people and making a difference, she has wrangled our WFH team, turning a lightbulb moment into a reality

Meet the rest of the team

A bunch of people who get along and believe in the power of connections.
Peter Knock
Co-founder & Director

An icon in the e-comm world, Peter is Stevie’s much loved mentor. His network, experience and expertise across a range of businesses puts him a position to provide phenomenal guidance to Stevie. Peter has a passion for ‘businesses for purpose’ and is the ever-calm Stevie sensei.

Tim Harrison
Co-founder & Director

Tim is our brand and digital marketing pro, who happens to have a love of machine learning and SQL. A win-win for us! Tim currently works as Brand Manager at Red Balloon whilst steering Stevie’s digital marketing and measurement, pushing the status quo to deliver customer-led solutions.

Alex Handrian

A man of many hats, Alex’s ‘can-do’ attitude ensured that Stevie grew from the spark of an idea to an exciting reality. Alex’s start-up experience and previous roles in e-comm and digital management brought much needed tech and digital skills to the Stevie table.

Nicola Hutton
People & Culture Advisor

There is not much that Nic hasn’t seen in the world of People & Culture. Her experience varies from domestic and global levels for NAB & ANZ to VC firm Main Sequence and their portfolio. Nic’s passion for building great teams with P&C functions brings incredible expertise to the Stevie team and wider community.

Steve Cole
Recruitment Advisor

Steve brings all the best bits of recruitment to Stevie (and leaves the other bits behind). He worked at Michael Page & Hays and is founder and MD of Signature Consulting, specialising in accounting and tax recruitment. Steve believes that great relationships are at the heart of successful recruiting; after decades of work, he knows it’s that simple.

Scott Arbeitman
Data & Analytics Advisor

Scott is our data and analytics pro who happens to have an MBA to throw in the mix. From Goldman Sachs and JBWere to Ignition, via Bellroy and Culture Amp, he’s seen how data can be leveraged for better decision making. AND he has the technical skills to make it happen. Great Scott!

Tony Nash
Business Development Advisor

Tony is Stevie’s North Star. Happily for us, Tony started out in recruitment before founding his first internet business in ‘96, when the biggest challenge was explaining what the internet actually was. Now he is known for founding the immensely successful Booktopia. Tony’s guidance, reality checks and inspiration provides Stevie with a solid foundation to grow.
