Stephan Willemse

Strategy Director

From growing up in the jungle, to chef at a London jazz café, to kindergarten teacher in Taiwan, to a lecturer in Spain — Stephan is a wanderer and wonderer. Our nomadic journeyman loves the boundless possibility of new beginnings, embracing ambiguity and the guiding principles of remaining curious. He believes interesting things happen on the borders between systems and ideas.

Stephan mastered his strategic prowess helping accomplish marvels such as a NZ Fire & Emergency services app, the digital experience for Internal Affairs, winning a UX Webby and helping establish a web design company in Africa. He also enjoys surfing, reading and spending time with his amazing wife and twins. His current mission is supporting the Wellington team.
