Meet Our Superstars

Don’t be alarmed – we’re not all grey blobs in real life! We’re in the process of organising our company photoshoot to get us all some awesome headshots! Some of us have our LinkedIn profiles linked, so feel free to snoop around and discover more about us!

Hi, I’m Louisa Marucci but you can call me Lou. I have been with the company for close to 10 years and I have over 20 years’ experience in Administration.

In my free time, I like to travel, cook, and spend time with family and friends.

Managing Director

Brian Peel

I have over 22 years’ experience in various Leadership & Management roles and 15 of these most recent years have been starting up and running Academy IT. I’m proud to have achieved SFIA – Level 7 via the Australian Computer Society and to maintain my Certified Professional status each year.

Happily married with lots of children and even lots more grandchildren. Love getting away for holidays with my wife and other than being keen on Soccer and Football – the rest of the time is taken up by my large family which I cherish and am grateful for.

The best part of managing Academy IT is working with my great team and supporting all our clients with their training needs – and very proud to have helped many students get jobs in IT after completing our courses over the years.
