Managing Director


Simon is responsible for managing the overall compliance team and ensuring the office environment is productive and engaging, and an enjoyable place to work.


Simon has wide-ranging experience gained through working in the commercial and industrial construction sector since 1996.


Growing up on a sheep, cropping and cattle farm in the wheat-belt town of Wagin, Simon is driven toward finding a practical solution to problems, understanding always that construction has to be commercially viable, as well as operationally functional and safe for occupants to proceed.
