CEO & Founder
John has over 30 years diverse experience in the IT industry worldwide, and is the iKydz founder. Faced with every parent’s dilemma of how to provide and manage access to appropriate internet content for his family, John searched the web for an effective and simple solution. He concluded that the layers of sophistication and complexity involved and high levels of tech savvy required to successfully implement most of the available solutions could be improved on.
And so iKydz was born.
Jason is the father of two teenage children and actively uses ikydz to manage their internet access. In the past he has run business operations including food retailing, property investment and professional services practices.
Jason is a chartered accountant with over 25 years commercial experience.
