About Webmad

Webmad is a venture born in 2012 when Directors, Stephen and Isaac joined forces to bring their many years of IT and web development expertise together. The company is dedicated to providing great results through creating solutions that best fit our clients needs.

Our values begin with loyalty, approachability and diversity and these help us keep you, our client as the priority. Our aim is to reflect these values in our clients websites and interactions, from supporting clients through the process of getting their finished product, through to having technical skill to pull it all together.

We are adaptable and ready to pick up any technical challenge that comes our way so you can feel reassured that your project is in the best and most capable hands, and because our team compromises broad experience, often there is someone who has had a tinker with the latest and greatest products. We can take the weight and worry off your shoulders and get your project launched!

Our Team

Meet our team... A diverse bunch of skills and expertise, we are ready to talk with you about any project or dream you have.

Stephen Price

Stephens background is in web development and hosting, specialising in PHP, database and media management technologies. If you have a project that is a bit outside the norm, Stephen is the man to talk to. Stephen is often found behind a sound desk or changing diapers when he is not behind a keyboard.

Isaac Trevathan

Isaac comes from an accounting and law background, but has been working with web technologies for over 12 years setting up numerous websites for various causes before partnering with WebHQ to form Webmad. Isaac specialises in PHP and database skills, and can help you completely work through your web projects so you get accurate and reliable results. Isaac likes long walks on the beach, and eating quiche.

Christina Felsch-Smale

Christina joined our team in March 2019. She has worked as a trained paralegal in Germany, until moving to New Zealand, where she worked several years in accounting and administration. Embracing the challenges and progresses in the IT industry, she likes to learn and be efficient. Being a certified yoga instructor, Christina loves spending time on her mat.
