Kiwa Stevenson

COO & Co-Founder, Bench Services

Hailing from the lush valleys in the Byron Bay hinterland, Kiwa’s experience has spanned from global aid work to senior IT services leadership positions.  Over the last decade Kiwa has been building teams of talent and transforming services capabilities in traditional IT vendors such as Dell and Hitachi Data Systems.

Kiwa cofounded Bench Services in early 2017, with a long time business associate, Sukhi Bhullar.

“I have spent the last decade as an agent of change, transforming organisational capability and building teams of talent.  I have also directly experienced the challenge of getting the right talent into the business to achieve the organisation’s goals.  Accessing the right talent is the key between executing to success or mediocrity.

My experience is, the best talent is contingent.   Through digitisation the world of labour is changing and I am wholeheartedly convinced the future of highly skilled work is contingent.

The best talent are people who choose when, how and for who they work.  Their experience is built across multiple sectors and industries rather than a single environment for years and years.  This fine tunes their skills; honing troubleshooting capability, the ability to operate under pressure and continuously execute to the highest standards.

We have created Bench to unlock that talent for organisations’.  We are disrupting the traditional model of how organisations access proven talent whilst enabling them to save significantly and at the same time scale.

It is a truly significant change the world is undergoing through digitisation.  Never before have the challenges and opportunities been so great.  Never before can organisation’s so easily, quickly and cheaply access highly skilled talent pools on demand”.
