Timeline

Key Moments

2007

The business was originally founded in 2007 as 'LeetGeek' by Richard Stafford. Shortly later, Ben Corbett applied for a job, only to end up not just hired, but as a co-owner instead - how's that for a plot twist! Together, they swiftly honed their expertise in providing support for both Mac and PC environments, something that set them apart in their field and propelled their business forward.

2011

Encouraged by Apple, we then moved into the Education sector and began to offer assistance for schools and tertiary institutions in South Australia.

2012

A massive milestone for our then small team, as Blackbird IT was awarded 1st place in the CRN Fast50 National. This award recognised the fastest-growing companies in the Australian IT channel. You can be sure there were celebrations all round!

2016

We recognised the need to embody our company's innovation and modernity more, which led to the decision to undergo a brand and name transformation. Thus, 'Blackbird IT' was born.

2021

With a growing team and expanded services, the moment arrived to transition to a larger office space. The new office boasts a custom comic wall, a pool table, piano, and an outdoor balcony (complete with a BBQ for Friday afternoon wings, naturally!).

2022

Thanks to our amazing team, Blackbird IT was awarded a Certified Great Place to Work! We also high-fived our way to acquiring NSW IT company and team, Autonomous IT.
