About Gleam

We're a small team focused on building big things.

Get Started

Gleam is a privately owned Australian business based in Melbourne, Australia. We power growth for over 300k businesses of all shapes and sizes around the world and we're just getting started ☺

Stuart moved to Melbourne from the UK in 2005, his background is search marketing and has worked for Hitwise (pre-acquisition), Experian and Sensis.

He runs all the day to day operations at Gleam, has two beautiful sons, a dog called Charlie Murphy, drinks way too much tea, obsesses about customer happiness, nags John way too much and loves electronic music.  

John Sherwood


John is from Melbourne also has worked as a developer at Sensis, Microsoft and Open Universities.

He does everything that involves code, has two girls, a cat called Mr Darcy, loves tinkering with new programming languages (Gleam uses AngularJS for our widget), loves Campari, has way too many Magic the Gathering cards and is a part time practical joker.  

Ilona Sherwood

Customer Support

Ilona is John's wife, she helps (wo)man our awesome customer support chat room.

She loves scuba diving, cats, holds a degree in Biology from Deakin University, has a growing fish tank collection and generally keeps John in check by reminding him he needs to eat or shower (coding gets to you like that).
