CyberShack snags Ray Shaw

What followed was a dozen group companies leveraging computing and custom-written software, offering services well ahead of their competitors. Today you would call these start-ups!

He also founded Techmart – one of Queensland’s largest computer superstores. It became the go-to place for great advice, the highest ethics and quality PCs.
