Aaron Thornton joined his brother (Dial a Nerd Founder; Colin Thornton) and a few varsity friends in 2000 to “help with the phones”, became a shareholder 2 years later and is now Operations Director of the newly merged businesses of Dial a Nerd and Turrito networks.
Having cut his teeth in the working world as a waiter in the service industry from the age of 16, Aaron’s skill set lies in building and maintaining relationships with clients, suppliers and employees alike.
In keeping with the entrepreneurial spirit of Dial a Nerd, Aaron has managed branches, handled HR, procurement, and sales & all the other things that come with running a company. In the last 24 months, Dial a Nerd has migrated through some major changes, which involved joining offices with Turrito in 2015 and finally concluding the merger of the businesses in 2017. Leveraging all he has learnt over the last 14 years in this industry, Aaron and the rest of the management team, has found it at times difficult, but ultimately extremely satisfying to have grown the company into what it has become.
