Our founders, David Tattam and David Bergmark, met whilst working at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Sydney, Australia in the mid-1990s. During this period and later, after heading up risk departments for leading international banks and finance companies, they saw how unsophisticated risk systems and processes were. There had to be a better way...
It was in 2000 that they decided they could be the change that the sector so desperately needed and began innovating their own solutions to meet their clients’ challenges - through training, advisory and software development in risk. Protecht, the combination of ‘protect’ and ‘technology’ evolved.
With backgrounds in finance, accounting and audit, David Tattam’s passion led him to focus on risk and training while David Bergmark focused on his passion for using technology to deliver innovative risk management solutions.
