Grant Straker
CEO
- Straker Translations
Grant started his technology career as a computer programmer before launching his own software development company in the 1990s and, after spotting a gap in the market for hi-tech language solutions, pivoting to a fully-fledged translations agency in 2010. As CEO, Grant drives the direction of the company as it continues to grow. He has had an incredibly varied set of experiences over the past 30 years; award-winning entrepreneur, engineer, paratrooper, ironman, volunteer fire fighter, musician and dad! Another of Grant’s passions centres on raising national standards in computing – particularly among young Maori – running educational courses designed to assist the next generation of workers to become more employable, and future-proof New Zealand’s place on the global stages of technology and innovation.
