Stephanie Hunt

Partner, SEO, Web Development, Social Media

Steph is the slightly nerdy partner in marketelements, being particularly good at helping clients to improve their online marketing with SEO, PPC, SM, FB, OBM, OM, plus a whole heap of other nerdy acronyms.   Steph is a local business mentor with a history in the finance and training industries.  Underscoring all this is her love of technology.   She goes to very nerdy international conferences to keep up with what Google is doing so she can share her new-found knowledge with the Team and our clients.

In her spare time, when she’s not looking after her family, Steph plays squash, reads and paints (acrylics and mixed media).  She also has a fixation with buttons… see her boards!

 Nathan O'Byrne

Nathan O’Byrne


We’ve long suspected that Nathan is not a real person at all – he’s actually a Superhero.  Whenever marketelements has a technical glitch or a piece of seriously tricky web work to do, he dons his “SuperTec” cape and swoops to the rescue!  Some say he has a 1 Million TB hard drive for a brain; others say he doesn’t drink or eat – but downloads everything he needs!  We just say “Thanks SuperTec… You’re a Hero!”
