Who are the team at Chirpy Plus?
Carol and Shaun are the Chirpy Co-Founders. We are both passionate about helping others and making a difference.
Carol was one of the first woman Chief Technical Officers (Head of IT) in several large corporates. Carol was recently interviewed for CIO magazine. Shaun, well, Shaun lived in Las Vegas (has some really great stories!) for 14 years and has a background in finance and sales and loves to watch movies in the middle of the day.
Over the last 4 years, we have established a great team, all with the same passion as us - to make a difference. A large part of our team is over 55 and we are all very excited about Chirpy.
We have poured our time (and a loooooot of money) into the development of Chirpy over the last 2 years. Chirpy is for us the culmination of all our research and experience. We love what we have created and are passionate (very) about what it can do to make a difference. We hope that you will join us for the journey and be a part of our great community.
Thanks for being a part of our journey and helping us make a difference.

CIO Magazine - November 2018
One of NZ’s first female CIOs is now a startup founder at age 69.
Carol Mahoney smiles when she meets with potential business partners and members for the startup she co-founded with her son, Shaun.
“They always assume he is the technology person,” says Carol, who just turned 69.
The reality is Mahoney is the CTO of Chirpy Plus, and her son, a finance executive, is in charge of marketing.
