I was fortunate enough to experience a management career that spanned most of the major disciplines including operations, marketing, recruitment, business start-up, consulting, and General Management, of several organizations in various industries.
In 2001 Joanne and I made the momentous decision to go into business for ourselves. This was in the form of a Quest Serviced Apartment business in St Kilda, Melbourne where we gained a keen understanding from the perspective of the “other side of the fence”, by managing 50 individually owned apartments, of what it meant to be intimately involved in an owners corporation (we attended all meetings as a major contributor to the fund) and just how important it was to us to have strata managers that were empathic, very responsive and solution focused.
We developed a full understanding of building maintenance issues and, and we gradually refurbished the whole apartment complex over a three year period. During this time we also developed an insight into how important it was to communicate regularly with lot owners, through newsletters and in person, so they knew exactly what was happening in their building.
For four years Joanne and I owned a motel business in the wet tropics of far north Queensland. Surviving Cyclone Larry, in addition to four years of severe flooding, intact, gave us an in-depth and hands–on, appreciation of what constitutes sound building practice and effective building up-keep and maintenance.
My interests are: Going for long walks, football (all codes), eating out, military history, and home DIY and repairs.
My personal values are doing what I say I will, when I say I will, getting the job done quickly and efficiently and developing trust. Our clients are our commercial lifeblood!
We are resident in Chippendale, SOUTH SYDNEY and keen to show you how well we look after our highly valued clients.
