There are few women in technology and very few at the top of the game.
Maxine Horne is one of Australia's most successful businesspeople, as the founder and CEO of Vita Group (ASX: VTG), the nation's largest independent technology business.
It all started on the Gold Coast in 1995 with one Fone Zone store - a game-changer before the tech boom. Maxine envisioned a world where phones would be an everyday commodity, and her utopia was proven true. Vita Group now has 1500 employees and more than 160 points of presence nationwide across brands including Telstra, Fone Zone, Sprout, Vita Enterprise Solutions and One Zero.
In a world driven by systems, processes and 'the next big thing', Maxine puts people first and foremost with an unwavering focus on employees and customers. This approach has seen Vita Group's revenues and profits soar. Recently Vita Group delivered a FY15 revenue of more than $600 million, up 34 per cent from the year before.
But Maxine's story is about more than revenue and profits. It's a fascinating tale of one woman's journey from a working class background in the UK to the top of Australia's technology industry, powered by one mantra - Think smart, run hard.
