– Your Man in Melbourne
Originally from South Africa, Neville arrived in Australia in 1994. He is a qualified Chartered Accountant and has a wide range of financial and operational experience including in eCommerce and Business Management in Australia.
“The internet has made us part of the global economy, and if we don’t provide best practice and best outcomes at competitive pricing, Australian businesses and Australian jobs will be lost forever. We have to keep the jobs in Australia that retain the brainpower and nous within our businesses, and we have to outsource the work that is repetitive, and mundane. Telstra do it, the big companies at the top end of town do it – why shouldn’t the small and medium-size enterprises do it too?”
His own experiences have taught him that outsourcing can be an amazing way to scale a business up and provides amazing flexibility if you need to scale a business down as well. Neville founded VirtualStaff365 after working with outsourced teams of staff and virtual assistants for more than six years, in India and the Philippines.
Neville lives with his wife, two children and his adored dogs Chilli and Otto. When not in the office, Neville enjoys challenging his friends around the world with some banter on their Peletons.

Launching VirtualStaff365 Outsourcing Solutions
Neville started VirtualStaff365 to help SME businesses gain the same economies of scale as the large corporates of Australia, but have no idea how to do it.
With his personal experiences of outsourcing, offshoring and working with virtual assistants and teams of virtual assistants, it made perfect sense to Neville to start VirtualStaff365 and help small and medium size enterprises reduce their cost base, and increase productivity by taking on virtual assistants.
