Our founders

Barry Sullivan and Pete Whittle (LinkedIn) first met in 2004 in Far North Queensland, in the Joint Operating Group, an inter-agency collaboration for biosecurity. Over the years they have shared an interest in the use of data systems in field operations. Barry was always an innovator in field data systems and he worked with Pete to introduce a mobile data system for banana disease management, for which Konect was the product of choice. They formed AgKonect in November 2017, to deliver the benefits of Konect more widely in agriculture and the environment.
