Hasan Ulker

Director – Saleshus

Hasan is a co-founder of the business and still remembers the days of the first MyConnect office, a whopping 12sqm! After a failed attempt at an eBay business with co-founder Robert, Hasan agreed that it was time to get serious and provide a service that people needed.

Having a depth of experience in Call Centres, Hasan and Robert have aligned MyConnect with Tier 1 suppliers to ensure all clients have a 10 out of 10 customer experience.

Understanding the Moving Market and listening to what Property Managers really wanted, Hasan has helped steer MyConnect to its market leading position since 2006. Hasan is 100% focused on working with the team on the road to establish lasting relationships with our Real Estate Partners and participating in Industry Events.

In his downtime he loves to roll his sleeves up and work on his HG Kingswood Ute and spend time with family and friends in his hometown of Mildura.

 

 

Robert Dybala

Director – Operationsrob

Robert is one of the founding members of the MyConnect team. After spending five years learning sales and operations in the call centre industry, Robert and Hasan decided to start a new player in the Utility Connection Industry.

Robert honed his face to face skills by hitting the road to visit real estate agencies across Victoria. Between these visits he was back in the office calling tenants and arranging new connections.

Fast forward 10 years and Robert has built a committed and enthusiastic sales team. He has also transferred his customer service knowledge to a vibrant team on the phones in the Melbourne office.

Robert’s diligent management of the day-to-day operation continues to plays a pivotal role in the success of the business, while his effective co-leadership of an enthusiastic and professional team ensures consistency in the delivery of client services.

You can still catch Robert on the phones in the office and next time you arrange your connections you might even speak with him. You always know his desk as it’s the messiest place in the office but there is some secret system in all the chaos.

When he’s not in the office he’s at his “other job” busy looking after his young son and twin daughters.
