Managing Director, Devika
After graduating from the University of Wollongong with a degree in IT (and a major in e-business), Ken ran his family business, Speedmaster.
In his first three years Ken transformed the family-run car parts wholesaler into a Top 100 Retailer, eventually positioning Speedmaster as the leading automotive retailer in Australia (overtaking Supercheap Auto).
It was during his time at Speedmaster that Ken visited Silicon Valley, and saw ordinary people building extraordinary businesses. Figuring that he would rather participate in the emergence of new technology rather than just watch, Ken decided to launch his own company.
In May 2016 Devika was officially launched from Ken’s Wollongong home. Flash forward 12 months and the company works out of offices at University of Wollongong (UOW), in a collaboration agreement which has seen them working with academics in areas such as healthcare, science, education, and infrastructure.
To Ken, emerging technology is much more than just the newest gadget – they are tools that can be used to affect positive change in the world.
