Meet the Team

Michael Rowe

Pytha Partner | Manager

With over twenty-five years in the joinery industry, Michael Rowe knows a thing or two about the game! He first discovered PYTHA as a shopfitting apprentice, and soon learned to love the capabilities and potential of this user-friendly program.  His years of practical experience in all faces of planning, presentation and production allow Michael to genuinely ‘talk the talk’ with designers and manufacturers,  ensuring that they are getting exactly what they need from their software installations.

Kim Girdlestone

Operations & Marketing

Some of you may have met the multi-talented Kim Girdlestone at our Pytha Partners Convention. Kim was one half of the fantastic pair serenading guests and rocking the Rooftop of the Holiday Inn Old Sydney. When she’s not singing up a storm, Kim has an eye for detail and some management magic that’s ensuring we are meeting customer expectations and building services to suit. She is also instrumental in developing our online presence for libraries and online training.

Tam Hinchy

Pytha Planner | Procedural Officer

Tam Hinchy has an impressive history in implementing systems and procedures, and as a new member of the team, we’re already loving her proficiency in the Pytha Partners office.  Tam will most likely be your primary point of contact with Pytha; if she can’t solve your problem, she’ll know who can and will get you back to business in no time.


Katie Sayour

Pytha Pro | Tech Support Guru

With a trade certificate in Furniture Making (Cabinetmaking) and almost a decade of detailed production drafting and CNC machinery operation, Katie Sayour certainly knows her way around PYTHA and Analyzer software. As the lead draftsperson in her previous role, she also gets the pressure involved in producing plans – stalls in drawing equal stops in production, so keeping a job moving is critical. Katie’s super efficiency will help keep you on the move, and with her technical know-how, she challenges you to find a PYTHA problem she can’t solve!
