The Globe Glider team

Bernhard Sterzbach – head programmer and gliderminder
the geeks' geek, the nerds' nerd. Got his first computer at the age of 14 — a Commodore. By 16, he was a professional programmer. His coding skills then smoothed his way through university and secured him a great job at a major software engineering company — which he still has!
Bernhard Sterzbach – the man who looked at Google Earth and said "I bet I can do what Google has not." And then went on to do more, much more than anyone ever dreamt possible.

Terry Swartzberg – marketing, press and head nudge
he writes the words and massages the markets. A fast-talking, grizzled 30-year veteran of international journalism.

Annette Schörner - CJO
Case you’re wondering, that’s in Chief Japan Officer, and believe us, she knows a lot about Japan. See
