Industry Leading Tech Partners

In 2010, Mark Frahn and Rob Librandi joined forces to create Comwire IT. Entering a cluttered and expanding landscape, Mark and Rob knew Comwire IT had to offer something unique.

So they developed the Comwire Ethos. Focused on two core elements – Clients & Communication – it touches all corners of the organisation. Technical, Sales, Accounts and Administration.

'There are plenty of talented IT people who don't talk', says Rob. 'Outstanding communicators with excellent tech skills are hard to find… But they're essential to Comwire. We want to communicate to our clients how we're helping them in language they understand. You can teach skills, but being a good listener is in your DNA'.

50+ people nationally. We’re still growing. And always talking.

As Director of Comwire IT and the broader suite of Comwire companies, Mark has developed a strong passion for developing IT solutions that create significant operational efficiencies and allow businesses to perform at their best.

Mark began his IT career at Internode working as a Level 2 business support provider, primarily with Cisco equipment. He established Copperwire in 2003, which began as a retail store with an internet café attached, but soon evolved into a B2B consulting practice which Mark eventually merged with Comprus.

After launching Comwire IT with partner Rob Librandi in 2010, Mark managed the integration of Host Express into Comwire Cloud in 2015 and the creation of Comwire Voice in 2016.

In his role as Director of Comwire IT, Rob has developed a keen interest in developing IT solutions that deliver outstanding return on investment for clients and allow them to increase their profitability through increased productivity and reduced down time.

After starting his IT career as the University of South Australia’s IT Coordinator, Rob established Comprus in 2000. He grew the company from a small hub to one of Adelaide’s first truly SMB Managed Service Providers. He then founded his second company Hostus in 2006 where, for the next 6 years, he focused on expanding into Cloud technology.

Rob merged Comprus with Mark Frahn’s Copperwire in 2010 and the pair soon realised their collective technology and business expertise were unique in the Adelaide market.
