My role:
I’m the owner and the boss. My role is to make sure we keep doing what we promise.

My background:
I’ve worked in the electrical contracting industry for over twenty years with more than half of this in exhibitions. In those early years, I learnt a lot working on the tools with my father Henk (from whom I subsequently acquired the business). Since then, the business has grown and diversified. And along the way, I found the time to complete a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of WA.
