About Ernst Pelser

My name is Ernst Pelser. I’ve been working in the Technology and Security industry for over 25 years. I’ve worked on 3 different continents and for global companies both in IT and Security. I’m the owner of a parent designed to reduce plastic bag waste. I’m definitely a problem solver instead of just looking at the problems and very outcome focussed.

I build relationships and trust fast and can also communicate at all levels of a business, whether it’s a technical discussion or a business conversation.

The startup world is what excites me because there’s a lot of people trying to solve real-world problem and there is an energy in this space that is lacking in larger organisations.

I can assist in the Cybersecurity, cloud and CTO-as-a-service space.

To learn more about me, check out my podcast, Tech Leaders Talk or my LinkedIn profile. Also, check out our website at
