At Booktopia, Wayne is responsible for all systems, both internal and external, oversees the strategy and operations of the business and also sits on Booktopia's Board. In his time at Booktopia Wayne has been responsible for a number of major projects including the development of all aspects of the Booktopia website, the design and development of their custom built warehouse management system and their always evolving eBook platform.
