The Enrolmy Story

Enrolmy is the result of 5 years working with over 100,000 parents, students and organisations to develop simple and efficient solutions to the enrolment, booking and payment process.

Welcome to Enrolmy

Enrolmy is the result of 5 years working with over 100,000 parents, students and organisations to develop simple and efficient solutions to the enrolment, booking and payment process.

The genesis of the idea arrived when founder and CEO Dean Pendergrast developed an online platform for the management of MusiqHub; a large music school based in New Zealand and Australia that he founded in 2007. It sought to better connect teachers and parents while providing a system for MusiqHub to manage their business. Word of mouth grew, and demand drove it to be enhanced and adopted by a range of child care and sporting organisations in New Zealand and Australia, resulting in over half a million sessions booked annually with minimal marketing activity.

In 2014 the platform was formalised under the Enrolmy brand and vision expanded to seek further avenues to alleviate the frustrations associated with organising a household filled with kids. Making the process of enrolment, booking and payment easier for parents is the tip of the iceberg for Enrolmy.

The Enrolmy founders have 9 kids between them, so are passionate about developing and distributing solutions that'll make theirs, and their friends lives easier.

Dean Pendergrast

Co-Founder & CEO

Dean is a passionate leader with a background in education and business. He founded MusiqHub in 2007 which quickly became New Zealand's Largest Music School. This enabled him to work with schools, students and parents as well as organisations in the kids space all over the country. It's here that he saw the opportunity to serve both organisations and parents managing their children with a simple software solution. In 2015 Dean sold MusiqHub to focus on Enrolmy.com full time and now manages a growing team dedicated to serving those serving families. Dean is married and has three growing boys and you'll find them all playing sport, jamming on their instruments or in the kitchen pretending to be on Masterchef.

Jeremy O'Hanlon

Co-Founder-Head of Marketing

Jeremy's recently moved out of his corporate role as the Head of Marketing at Orcon, where he positioned the brand as an aggressive challenger while carving a niche into NZ's high value fibre broadband market. As well as a Marketing and Psychology Degree, he gained a BCom in Finance at the University of Auckland because his mates were doing it and he liked the idea of making heaps on the sharemarket. That never happened. You'll find him with his two young kids or on a boat diving and fishing.

Mike Rickson

Co-Founder-Head of Development

Designing and making things is what Mike enjoys the most. On any given day that could mean a new garden patio, an abstract piece of art, or a comprehensive API for an ambitious and dynamic tech start-up. Most of his energy over recent years has been spent building cloud-based solutions for child-focused organisations. Working closely with these providers has given him a strong understanding of the complex administrative needs of organisations and parents alike.
