The perfect team — strategy, operations and technology.
Caroline Moncur, Chief Operating Officer
Caroline Moncur has 20 years’ experience and executive-level focus in the technology and recruitment industries. Prior to moving to The Bahamas in 2004, Caroline worked for the largest recruitment company in Australia, Morgan & Banks, as well as the 3rd largest recruitment company in the world, Vedior International. During her career in Australia, she progressed from Consultant to General Manager.
On relocating to The Bahamas, Caroline joined an IT services company. As Vice President, Consulting Solutions, Caroline established and developed consulting services. Caroline’s focus was on creating new partnerships globally to deliver customised technology solutions, competitive in price, predominantly in the financial services sector.

With a partnership network extending all over the world, 3Connect Bahamas is able to create and deliver unique, high quality technology services at a much lower cost than the big consulting firms.

Ian has a Masters Degree in Science with First Class Honours from Massey University in New Zealand.
Kyle Baley, Chief Technology Officer
After an on-again/off-again flirtation with a career as an actuary, Kyle Baley decided he preferred to keep his risk unmanaged. Since 1998, he has been a software developer and has never looked back (except for the summer in 2004, which he refers to as the "lost season"). He has worked in a variety of industries such as oil and gas, transportation, education, private banking, insurance, and telecommunication and during his travels, he has discovered that the more software changes, the more it stays the same.
In the last few years, he has directed his efforts at honing his craft and reaching out the software community, both as a teacher and a learner. Born and raised in the "challenging" climate of Manitoba, Canada, he currently makes his home in the Bahamas with his wife and two children where he has a much more sporting chance of surviving The annual polar bear dip.
Most recently he has been Chief of Product Development at http://getbookedin.com, an online scheduling application.
He is also the co- author of “Application Development in .NET".
