Brad Griffiths

Director/  Network & Systems Engineer 

Brad Griffiths has over 15 years of technical experience in IT and electronics fields. 

He started his career as an apprentice in the Royal Australian Air Force as a Communications Electronics Technician where he gained knowledge, skills and techniques in troubleshooting on electronics with a focus on radio equipment and RF. 

Within months of starting at his first posting, the Squadron Warrant Officer recognised Brad's keen interest in IT and moved him into a section specialising in Deployable Information Systems; a team of Airmen tasked with setting up networks and telephony literally anywhere in the world at a moment's notice and provide helpdesk duties while in operation.  Continued specialist training along with a focus on Cisco (routing & switching configuration) and Windows administration was provided over the years ensuring a solid grounding in the Networking Engineering space, this knowledge was put to task on several Operations, both in Australia and overseas. 

On leaving the Air Force Brad began employment as an engineer with a well known, reputable Managed Services Provider in Western Sydney. In contrast to the military, this new opportunity exposed him to many different technologies and products used in Small-Medium Enterprises. While here he took on several migration projects for his customers between versions of Windows Server and also from Exchange to Office365 along with general duties in the helpdesk while in the office. 

Looking for a change of pace and a network to call his own network, Brad began to work for one of Australia's largest shopfitting businesses.  Drawing on his experience from his previous roles he quickly went to task rectifying issues with the network, greatly improving its performance and reliability.  And as a final feather in his cap reduced IT and telephony expenditure by more than 50%. 

In 2015 Brad become one of the founding members of ManIT Technology, and is our Head Network Engineer.

Gerry Cohn

Director/ Electronics & Software Engineer 

Gerry has over 40 years experience in electronics & IT.
He started as an electronics technician in 1975 with MIL Access Control Systems and then moved on
to Wormald Card Key security division in 1977.
Gerry worked as a technical journalist at Electronics Australia magazine from 1979 to 1981.
In 1981, following an offer to form a partnership he co-founded Digital Automation which designed
and manufactured large scale information display systems such as Airport displays and large format
graphical scoreboards for sporting arenas.
In 1985 Digital Automation closed following the “recession we had to have” upon which Gerry joined
Rand Walker as a design engineer where he provided consulting and design services in fields as
diverse as custom product design through to industrial batching control systems for everything from
cement plants to plastics and pharmaceuticals.
1989 saw Gerry establish an independent consultancy providing custom hardware and software
design services for a wide range of clients. During this time Gerry was instrumental in the design of a
range of specialised keyboard products at Keycorp for the banking sector. Clients included names
such as CBA and Westpac.
In 1993 Gerry joined AWA Traffic & Information Systems as an independent contractor to provide
CAD systems expertise and became heavily involved in the design of the Delta 5 traffic controller.
During this time Gerry met his future new business partners and in 1995 set up QTC (Quick Turn
Circuits). Initially QTC specialised in manufacturing prototype quantities of printed circuit boards on
a very fast turn-around, including multi-layer PCB’s.
The advent of the internet saw increasing competition from Asia in the PCB market and so we turned
our attention once again to traffic control and proceeded to design the QTC Hadron traffic
controller. We attained full type approval in 2001 and proceeded to supply traffic authorities
throughout Australia and New Zealand and exported our controllers all over the world.
They can be seen controlling traffic lights at intersections throughout Australia.
QTC was sold in 2013 and is still producing and exporting traffic controllers.
In 2015 Gerry approached Brad Griffiths with the idea of forming a new company and thus ManIT
was born.
Gerry works closely with Brad Griffiths, our Head Network Engineer to provide our clients with
second-to-none network and IT support. He also continues to provide consultancy and custom
hardware and software design services.
