XAM's Story


A shared co-workspace located in Sydney’s southern business hub brought together two like-minded technology experts, Drew Alexander and Michael Ridland.

With the same principles and vision for the future, they teamed up to put XAM Consulting on a new trajectory.

In the lead up to their successful partnership, Michael was nurturing his growing microbusiness XAM Consulting, servicing companies seeking external Xamarin expertise and providing them with technically excellent software solutions. While successfully responding to the niche market for Xamarin software, Michael was also inspired by other industry thought leaders who were emerging in the Australian marketplace.

At the same time, Drew was committed to fulfilling his dream of moving his family to Sydney and building a successful business there, after establishing a flourishing technology company in the United Kingdom that employed a team of 100.

The more they spoke, the more they realised that their approach to business was aligned. By combining their individual expertise and strengths, Michael and Drew knew they could create the same future.

Together they honed XAM Consulting into an agency with a design-led, problem-solving approach and it became a key player in the Australian app development marketplace.

From a staff of five, XAM began doubling each year and now numbers 40 key team members. The company has fulfilled its mission of becoming a technically strong agency that focuses on delivery but also cares about design and business value.

Now employing Australia’s top talent in the app development space, XAM Consulting is proudly Australian owned.

Michael and Drew put the transformation of XAM Consulting down to keeping up with the pace of change and simply delivering a great return on investment for their customers. Xam Consulting builds solutions that really solve a problem, justifying the capital investment and creating cascading success for the customer.

XAM Consulting has successfully completed major projects for organisations across the construction, telco, retail and finance industries and beyond, empowering all clients with agile digital solutions.

With rapid growth in the software product and utilities sector, and a focus on harnessing the strategic role of data, for XAM the future is just beginning.
