- About Us
At SuttonNet, we combine a wide range of experience and skills for website programming and management.
Bill worked for many years on mainframe computers in key Commonwealth Government departments, where security and reliability were critical.
After moving away from Canberra, Bill explored programming interests in cattle breeding, weatherfax reports, OS/2 and vector graphics, as well as undertaking contract IT work. Next came 15 years as a partner of a webhosting and development company. In 2013 Bill and his wife Diane set up SuttonNet.
Bill does much of the technical stuff:
Bill's special interest is developing custom applications for great ideas. We create and maintain our own web software, because what's 'out there' doesn't always meet our specifications or our clients' needs.
Diane majored in linguistics, with a strong dose of pure mathematics as well. She worked in Canberra for the then Dept of Aboriginal Affairs, preparing Ministerial briefs and correspondence on a wide range of topics.
Diane left the public service to concentrate on mothering. She homeschooled our two children for Years 7-10.
Diane has had many roles in our local community, including breastfeeding counsellor, children's athletics coach, Pony Club instructor, Scripture teacher and on the local Chamber of Commerce committee.
At SuttonNet, Diane's tasks include:
From time to time, she publishes a spiel or some poems on her own website.
Helen works with us remotely from Sydney (Sydney being remote from the Snowy Mountains perspective). She edits webpages, concocts training videos, researches 3rd party software & helps Diane in various ways. She worked for many years in IT support & website maintenance, for a missionary organisation.
Helen also works in disability support.
Our son John contributes business marketing and web design assistance from time to time. He designed our main website. John's real passion is music. He has a Masters degree in classical flute performance. He also designed his own website.
Bill and Diane live near Adaminaby in the Snowy Mountains area of NSW. We have horses, a dog and chooks.
The heart and focus of our lives is Jesus, our risen Saviour and Lord. This is reflected in every aspect of our work, including our financial and marketing practices, our standards for website content and our care of clients. We pray for and bless our clients and their businesses - not a service that every web developer offers!
Our children are John (married to Naomi) and Teresa. John, Naomi and our grandchild Annelise live in Scotland. John teaches woodwind & plays classical flute & piccolo. Naomi works for a first aid service. Teresa has a degree in agricultural business management and loves people, life and facing challenges.
