I am the proprietor and founder of CCS, and head up the removalist team on every project. I’m thoroughly involved in the planning, co-ordination and implementation of every project, both onsite and behind the scenes.
I’m responsible for the client liaison, quoting, quality management, standards assurance, inspection & reporting services, and start to finish communications.
My background and expertise is in property development, project management and Health and Safety Consultancy. I was previously an International Project Manager, conducting OH&S audits for the resources industry, in the Middle East, Asia and South East Asia.
Having worked extensively in small business and large corporate sectors, I am keen to bring the best of both service styles and capabilities, to our clients in the Great Southern.
In my opinion, communication is a supremely important part of reaching outcomes successfully, and minimising risk. I have completed a communication skills course, and have also practiced as a life coach.
I really enjoy big picture thinking, listening to people, and working together to find the best solutions to the problem at hand. My experience is pretty varied, from planning, consultation, and ticking boxes, to onsite labouring and implementation.
Experience has taught me the importance of planning and preparation; focusing on the objectives, communicating with stakeholders, clearly, openly and frequently, and the value of hard work performed methodically.
On moving and starting a family in Denmark, in 2011, I started up a gardening and maintenance services business. I soon identified the need for local, specialist services in asbestos removal and demolitions. I started CCS Asbestos services in 2014. It is a great fit for my skills base and disciplined attention to detail. I really enjoy the logistical challenges, managing processes and people.
I would like to see Australia catch up to some European countries (such as Germany) where asbestos has already been dealt with. I would like to see Australia implement laws to prevent people doing ‘temporary fixes’ when dealing with asbestos, such as people cladding over the asbestos. This would prevent more future issues.
With a young family, focus on the longer-term future, and sustainability, takes on a new emphasis. I am keen to lead a clean and happy lifestyle, here in Denmark, with my wife and two kids.
Globally, I hope the future will bring more sustainability and accountability across all growth industries. I would like to see decisions being made, and actions taken for the greater good of people, rather than for greed and money. Especially, I would like to see more mentoring and support for children, as they are the future.
Generally, in the Great Southern I would like to see better infrastructure, and better access to specialist services, but I’m keen that the region continues to be a mecca for good food, good wine and a great lifestyle.
On my days off, I enjoy trail bike riding (enduro), surfing, fishing, and 4WD. Pretty much all things adventure based. I love spending time with family, and exploring Denmark and the Great Southern.
