About Us

How it all started...

All the highs and lows of outsourcing, offshoring, and working with distributed teams, Australian entrepreneurs Matt Kesby and his sister Fiona Kesby have known first-hand.

They began offshoring tasks via Odesk (now Upwork) for their software development business in 2008. They can help you avoid the frustrations that sometimes come with the territory, whether you’re working with one virtual assistant (VA) or leading a large global team.

In May 2014, Matt started GO-VA after one of those light-bulb moments. As an execution practice leader for FranklinCovey, a global leader in effectiveness training, productivity tools, and strategy and execution consulting, he found that working with a Filipino VA made a real difference. “Everyone in business should be doing this,” he thought.

In 2015, Fiona moved to Cebu in the Philippines to lead GO-VA as it scaled. Both Fiona and Matt want all business owners to have the opportunity to offshore tasks effectively without the high costs of setting up an offshore business or the loss of control that full outsourcing entails.

GO-VA finds the top talent in the field, from among whom their clients choose who they’ll work with. Clients also decide how the work will be performed. In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, GO-VA moved more than 70% of teammates from an office-based to a work-from-home arrangement, for everyone’s safety and peace of mind. 

How do you sustain and strengthen a kind, caring, and high-performance culture in a distributed team? That’s the challenge GO-VA’s leaders (read: every remarkable individual in the GO-VA tribe) have embraced. 

At its core, the philosophy remains the same. Bring together growth-stage businesses in Australia, NZ, UK, US, Singapore, and practically anywhere in the world with remarkable teammates in the Philippines, who possess a broad range of skills. This way, more businesses can execute on their strategy, scale, and find their place in a new world teeming with opportunities.
