Tracey is originally from the wonderful islands of New Zealand and moved to the UK in 2000. Tracey had a plan to save money in the UK for a deposit for a house in New Zealand. But love struck and so Tracey stayed in the UK (which is lucky for us). Tracey has had an awesome career as an Implementation Consultant. Tracey worked for Unit4 for eight years and most recently Advanced Business Solutions for two years. We are super lucky to have Tracey join the Highpoint team and have her vast knowledge of Implementation Consultancy. Outside of work it seems Tracey has somewhat of a green finger. Her most treasured plant right now is her Weeping Willow Cherry Tree.
