Meet the team

Leadership team

ion’s three directors share a long history, spanning two continents and close to three decades of friendship, forged on school sports fields and evolving into successful business partnerships.

Andrew Gardner – Director

Andrew has co-founded a number of successful enterprises in the smart business solutions industry over the past 20 years, both here in Australia and in South Africa. He is passionate about helping our clients use state-of-the-art technology to better connect with their teams and customers, transforming their businesses and how they operate. His wealth of experience and business nous sees him at the heart of the decisions that make ion a leader in its field.

When he’s not at work, you’ll find him pool or field-side watching his kids in action, at the gym or looking for a wave at one of South East Queensland’s many beautiful beaches.

Jason Van Der Walt – Director

After successfully creating and building Fusion, an office automation business in South Africa in the 2000’s with fellow ion director, Andrew Gardner, Jason now calls Australia home and loves it! The lessons learned during these years were and remain invaluable in forming and shaping the vision for ion.

Jason has the ability to simplify the complicated and works with our clients to select the perfect combination of business solutions — both hardware and software — to maximise efficiency and productivity.

Outside of the office, he is a proud dad and husband, an avid paddler, fisherman, hiker, lifesaver and all-round water sports enthusiast.

Andrew Millar – Director

As a qualified Chartered Accountant and CIMA qualified professional, Andrew had a successful career in the international finance and corporate services world before cofounding ion.

He is truly passionate about creating real relationships with clients, fostering genuine teamwork and improving people’s lives by better use of technology.

Andrew garnered a wealth of experience at the likes of KPMG, Bank of Scotland, and Fortis Bank. He served as an independent director on many boards and was a leading regional head of fund services. Previous roles took him to far-flung corners of the globe including Dubai, New York, London, Miami and Sydney.

Despite these great experiences, he’s convinced he hit the jackpot when he chose to call South East Queensland home and when he’s not at ion, you’ll find him surfing, kitesurfing, getting his neck cranked at Jiu Jitsu or playing with his kids.
